  1. Batik workshop in Accra Ghana

    by , 07-19-2015 at 06:41 PM
    I was organizing photos and came across these from 2012 when we were living in West Africa.

    Another expat who had taken me under her wing knew a local Ghanian who made her own batiks, she showed us the technique she uses and we got to make our own.

    We had a wide array of designs to choose from, to use as wax stamps. These were carved from a hard sponge-like material.

Made a small charity to see how it went, and when I got the hang of it, it went quickly, and am sure anothr one of these quilts will find its way out of the scrap box.

    Abouth the second one: Last week recycler posted a quilt that I copied ("copied" is such a nasty word!), but I guess that is what I did, but used larger squares,

  8. Hexie idea

    by , 07-12-2015 at 11:17 AM
    I have been working on a hexie quilt for my daughter. I want it to end up being a queen size. Here is my idea...
    I would like to make it to begin spreading our the flowers and single genies and the use the white as the background making it look like the flowers and hexies are falling down applica and seen on using the aqua thread. Does this make sense? I am looking for similar projects already done. The picture below is what I have so far.
