    This is one of the quilts that I recently made. I call it random acts of kindness. I like to think that if all of our acts were strips of fabric they would look like a very colorful quilt when sew all together.

    I used the whole width of the fabric. I just fallowed the tute on the board. I think it turned out really great.

    Yes they are mostly batiks with a few tie-dye added in. The neighbor gave me the fabric that she picked up from her local quilt store. They were put together in bundles of 10 so she just picked out what she though was pretty. She has great taste.
