    Very pretty! I love the idea of the painters tape and will give that a try in the near future.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    It looks beautiful. I love batiks.
    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.

    Great use of the batiks! Nice friend who gave up such big scraps! I hope to see more .. since you have new techniques in your skill basket.

    I, too, have never thought of using painter's tape for any kind of quilting. I just always use the thing that sticks out of the side of my walking foot. Your quilt is gorgeous and I'm sure your DD will get much enjoyment from it!

    I love everything about your wallhanging! Such beautiful colors. Did you draw the leaf, or is it a particular applique pattern? I especially also liked the fabric you picked out for framing the block! Beautiful work!
