    This pattern is "Syncopated Rhythm" by Karen Montgomery

    I bought this as a kit at the Santa Barbara quilt show this last fall. These are "my" colors! Nice and cheery. The border is a little redder in the picture than in reality. It's really more orange and pink, like in the 'big stick' popsicles.

    One quilt down and a few more to go. I am busily trying to clear the decks so I can start a quilt for our youngest daughter. She's the only one left that doesn't have a quilt made especially for her. I have hit a point though where the projects must be finished before I start something new! :wink:

    I try to look at everyone's wonderful quilts here when I get a break. :D Ladies and Gentlemen, Y'all do some pretty awesome work!

    This is the back. I fell in love with this piece of batik. Yummy! The colors are nearly right here.

    Syncopated Rhythm - not quite so red in real life but still plenty bright!

    Your colours are the same as my husband's - he would LOVE that quilt! One day I'm going to make a Snail's Trail quilt in colours that bright for him :)

    Love this quilt! The batiks you chose are beautiful, fun and happy looking. What will you do with this one? I also really like the abstractness of the pattern.

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Wow! What a wonderful messages to wake up to in the morning. I'm blushing! When I saw the sample at the quilt show I knew I had to have this quilt. I hadn't made a batik quilt before for various reasons.

    When I first started quilting I worked with a few batiks. I had no idea what they were and, ready for this, didn't like them. Turns out the reason for my dislike was the pins I was using. They were dull and very hard to use! SO, I now have new pins, have learned more about batiks and have a new love! Wow! Just thinking of what I was missing makes me want to cry! :lol: No more! My batik stash is growing.

    I've not decided what to do with this quilt yet. It really doesn't go with the home decor but it may end up on a wall for a bit anyway! It does make me happy! It's nice and warm so it may just be used come winter. Then again, a daughter's coming home this summer for a visit so I may lose it too! Who knows?

    Thank you again for all the positive feed-back. Now on to the next WIP! Time to wind them all up, whip them out, finish them off... oh, you know what I mean.


    :wink:

    I agree with Kj05, you are no slouch yourself. Keep up the good work.

    Batiks are so great! I am glad you posted this. I recently got a rainbow assortment of batiks and wondered exactly how I might use them all in one quilt - this is a great example! Keep up the good work.
