In addition to the projects above, I also have this one that I came across and thought you have to give it a try. I purchased and started on this project maybe at the end of 2009 or the beginning of 2010 and put it to the side. While I was organizing (or should say re-organizing then organizing again as I have to do frequently to find all of my TO-DO projects and put them in containers so they could be found easily) I found this one in the back of my fabric closet. This has been my first project with Batiks. The reason I put it down before is that you could not really use pins as the holes stay and when you sew incorrectly and have to "un-sew" those pin marks stay and is not real attractive. Since I was new to quilting, I relied on pins heavily, but now I can sew some pieces without using pins. I started work again on this project last weekend and I am more than halfway done piecing the blocks. I hope I can finish piecing the top this weekend. I have to figure out what baking I will use. Also, I will have to research how you quilt with batiks I don't think I will use batik fabric as all of the baking (too expensive, plus don't like that feel against my skin). Click on the link below for the pattern. I will surely make this quilt again using regular fabric. I like it and it is fairly quick pattern.
All of these quilts are so different and that is what I love about them. They encompass various styles and techniques.
