    my first batik

    I did this little lap quilt this weekend. The first time I used batik. At first I didn't like batik, everyone was talking about it everywhere. I bought my first fabric and now I love it! Pictures on the internet just didn't do it justice. Have just purchased more and ready to do another project with it!

    Beautiful!! Did you wash the batiks before you began?
    One step at a time, always forward.

    So bright and certainly colorful. I like it alot and like you I did not fancy batiks either until I finally tried a jelly roll of batiks and also like you, I want to do more. I like the way you pieced the backing too. Great job!

    Beautiful! I agree. I had to warm up to batiks, but I love them now.

    I have never made a Batik and have collected several Batik materials. I don't know where to start as far as a pattern. Your pattern shows the fabrics well.

    I love batik quilts. They are among my favorite.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
