Default Storm at Sea batiks

Thanks to all for input on keeping this quilt from bleeding. I did a test “rub” with a damp white towel, and all seemed good. I used a few color catchers with first wash, and I think all is well! Whew!

No pattern, traditionally pieced. Second quilt from batiks that I brought back from Maui a few years ago. I need to return to replenish my stash now! Go away, Covid! I had to make binding scrappy because I didn’t have enough of any fabrics for the entire binding.

My first time glue basting-used Elmers Washable and applied with carpenters paint roller bottle. Super easy, but I think I applied glue heavier than I needed to.

This quilt is for one of my DILs. She is an ER physician and lives several states away, so this will have to replace my hugs for now.

Thank you for sharing the final project -- I'm so glad it passed the wash test!
