    Working on the bordered periwinkle

    I am using batiks. I don't have these blocks sewen together yet. I could not wait to see what the design was going to look like. Pattern from MSQC on a tutorial. It is not very easy in case any of you are thinking about it.One thing about the batiks, If the piece does not fit on the paper, I just turn it over.Name:  IMG_3091.jpg

    It takes real skill to choke on air, fall upstairs and trip over completely nothing .... I have that skill!!!

    Very pretty and interesting quilt. I'm sure you've noticed already but in the second row; second block from left; first side triangle on left - it appears to be upside down - the white 'path' is not lined up. Just don't want you to have to rip-redo!

    You just can't error with using batiks. Very pretty and looks original.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    This is very pretty with your batiks. I made this quilt (not with batiks) I was so glad when it was done. I found myself very bored with this quilt pattern. Don't plan to ever make this on again. LOL

    Very vibrant and pretty. But it looks like a lot of matching to do to get the sashing lined up but it will be so worth it when you are finished.

    Really like your version. I had to watch the video a few times closely and go back over. I have the papers and template also.
