    Great quilts Allison! It looks like you put a Wisconsin winter to good use! I hope you keep with it - but also hope that you find some quilting friends to play with, so those winters are even more fun! Was your Mom surprised to see what you had been quilting for her right before her eyes without her knowing it?

    Wow, great quilts! I popped out of my chair when I saw the first one. What a wonderful, bright set of colors, and so beautifully put together.

    I didn't realize you could use batiks in a rag quilt. Do they "rag" okay? I thought the weave would be too tight.

    Nope I'm not an old lady at all... I'm a youngin' and it's not middle age empty nest it's young age empty nest. DH and I have been trying to get pregnant for 4 years now and I just needed something to do with my hands since everything else is out of my control.

    GOOD question!!!! After that quilt I made for my sister's birthday my mom decided she liked batiks and I sadly explained to her that I could not make her a batik rag quilt. You have to use a certain type of fabric to rag it right? Well then I thought okay, I'll just have the cotton batik on the top layer and flannel or homespun for the batting and backing.... and then I figured that the textures in that quilt would just be off...

    so then I was up in Michigan's Upper Penninsula on our anniversary vacation & I found this quaint little quilt shop in Paradise, MI (Near Tahquamenon Falls) and they had a whole WALL full of bolts and bolts of batik flannel! I couldn't believe it!! Our anniversary is Nov 17 so I didn't have much time to buy the fabrics and make up a quilt before Christmas! But I got all the colors that she would love...

    Here's a link to a video of my mom opening the quilt :

    lol I meant for that to be funny... I am not good at staying in the lines so marking things would be very very bad for me

    I am astounded at your output!! May I also add, your sense of colour and design is very good, and also the quilting (and you wing it????). Aah well, this middle-aged, almost empty nester (only 1 left at home) just got a good kick in the pants....new mantra "get quilting and stop "over thinking" ,"over analysing" and procrastinating! Thanks for sharing, it was a real joy looking at your work.
