Default 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.

Beautiful work! I love the colors too. I'm afraid to even try curves.

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
