    Crazy Curves Batik - hand quilted

    This quilt was made using a crazy curves pattern with earth tone batiks. I sewed the two pieces of the curve together with a flat seam so I could fringe the curve. I think it adds some extra texture and interest. I made this for a dear friend who will be finishing her teaching degree this summer after raising her family. Such a great accomplishment for her.

    I'm a beginner, but have no problem sewing curves. I played around a bit with the drankard's path pattern and in the process, found this video that was really helpful. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LlwVGoL4zV0

    Stunning! I love the colors. The pattern. The raw edges.

    Well done!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Beautiful quilt. The way you sewed the curves makes it look easy. I just love the raggy look. Definitely gives it more dimension. Great job
