    This is my first time working with Batiks

    This quilt was suppose to be for my cousins high school graduation last May. Well needless to say it was a little late......but she absolutely loved it. This is also my first pic to post:

    Beautiful quilt and great job of posting the picture.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Sew pretty! I love those fairy panels and I like how the pieced section looks like celtic knot designs around it.

    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    You did a great job! I see batiks but shy away from them since I don't really know what to do with them. Love your idea of framing a beautiful panel.

    Better late than never (smile). What a beautiful quilt and I love your fabric choices. Nice work. Thank you for sharing.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
