    a friend and I both made this small quilt but "doubled the recipe" - she got hers put together while mine was defeating me...
    she and her DH came down here for a visit and she helped me get this laid out so I could put it all together and I finished quilting it today.... thank heavens!

    I call it "Sunrise-Sunset"

    It's all batiks and that caused all sorts of problems with the quilting! 8)

    It's GORGEOUS! Batiks are my favorite fabric, those colors are beautiful. What problems did you have quilting it?

    size: 80x60

    problems: first of all, the original pattern calls for all those different sized squares set on point and the quilt is 40x60... which is small, so we doubled it - but then your squares don't line up (on point, remember?) I don't have a 'linear' mind and just couldn't get the thing to do right...
    Margie figured it out and brought hers with them so we could get mine laid out correctly....

    then I had problems with the tension, then the skipping, then the thread shredded and I was ready to give up on it again...
    finally I guess I just held my mouth right because I got it done but the tension is still kinda wonky in it - it aint' gonna fall apart so what the heck :roll: :lol:

    Wow I'm impressed. That is beautifal. You should hang that on your wall so you can look at it all the time and be proud of yourself.

    Your quilt is gorgeous. I have never worked with batiks. The colors are beautiful, your blocks are fantastic. But you said the quilting with batiks gave you a time. What is the hype with batiks? Is it the colors? I have never like the "hand" of batiks. They don't seem to be fabric for quilting. Could someone please help me learn to appreciate them? I love this quilt. :thumbup:
