An unplanned project…

I decided to sew together the leftover strips from the batik quilt. As I began to sew, I knew who should receive this quilt. It needs to be lap quilt size but I ran out of strips. I made some 16 patches but not enough. I started using the strings I had left over. This is getting more and more chaotic and it is still too small.

I rearranged the bits a few times. I have a bit more fabric I can use. We shall see where this takes me…

About katyquilts

I am a wife, mom of four amazing kids, and a librarian. I have been making traditional quilts for ages but have ventured into art qulting in the last several years. I also love to knit socks and mittens and dye my own fabric. I am thankful to God my Father and Creator for the gift of creativity!

    I have some beautiful batiks in blue/purple. They are in fat quarters. I would be glad to donate them to your quilt. Let me know and I’ll send them on their way!
