Of all the quilts I’ve made, this is one of my favorites.
The other thing I adore about this quilt are the fabrics. I had these batiks left over from something else. They were all stuffed into a small basket and didn’t look like they go very far, so I decided to keep making blocks until I ran out. I was amazed at how far that little pile went, I still have some left.
The machine quilting follows the pattern of the fabric on the backside, which was a fun way to do it. The idea for that technique came from Larraine Scouler’s book, Quilting Back to Front: Fun & Easy No-Mark Techniques.
