3 Batik Beauties

Batik quilts don't seem to come into my studio very often these days, so as a Batik lover deep at heart I was thrilled when Wendy brought these three batik beauties by.  First up is the fun Jelly Roll Race quilt in a beautiful color palette.

When chose the Gingersnap pantograph and we used a turquoise thread on the top and on the back.  I love how the quilting shows up on the fireside backing.

Next up is the gorgeous "Emerald Forest" quilt that comes from the book "Inspired by Bali"  in a palette of  brown batiks with more fireside on the back!  The Windswept pantograph was a nice finishing touch.

Have you ever made an orange quilt?  How about an orange Batik quilt? I'm sure most quilters would answer "no" to those questions.  Adding some shiny orange Magnifico thread and the Time Warp pantograph was a lot of fun on this one!  The pattern is called Mosaic by Aardvark Quilts.

Wendy and I had fun coming up with a little extra something that unfortunately is not coming across in the photos.  One pantograph row was quilted in shiny light grey thread to add some unexpected interest.  Hopefully the recipients enjoy the little detail.

  1. The last photo shows the quilting so well, those lines are amazing, orange that glows all over, and the quilt held by hands in mittens, that shows it is really cold up there.
