Finally! The Perfect Project!

I certainly don’t seem to have a problem collecting batiks, which is not that big of a deal, except that I rarely use batiks!  But all that is going to change!   These yummy bundles of batiks caught my eye at Quilt Market in Houston about 3 or 4 years ago.  How could I leave them behind?   I have been waiting very patiently for the “perfect project” to come along.

Well!  Not only did the perfect pattern come along, it also had a co-ordinating fat-eights bundle to go along with it!  When opportunity like this knocks, you better open the door!  The “perfect project” for my batik collection is “Spring Bouquet” by Laundry Basket Quilts.  The fabrics are “Over the Rainbow” batiks by Laundry Basket Quilts for Moda.

Don’t they play nicely together!  I promised myself I will not start this project until I finish….something!

In the meantime, I have been stitching away on Block #3 of The Civil War Bride Quilt.  I could not help myself!  I wanted to see what the blocks might look like once they are stitched together.  Spiffy!

Oh…and this was fun!   The handle on the basket I started last week is made up of 3 long bias strips that are braided together….

…and then glued in place!  Spiffy!

Til next time…..
