Batik Progress

So I got the top together and as I suspected, it was just too narrow.

I went through the bins and gathered all the blue scraps I could find to make more rectangles. Quite a few look like this.

I was able to make two more columns and I’m much happier with it now.

Time to quilt!

Have a great day!

    This is a very fun quilt. I know you will be happier with the additional width.

  2. The dark blue is a perfect background for the bright batiks!

    Katy,I really enjoy your emails, and look forward to reading them. What battings do you prefer to use? I have been disappointed in the BLEACHED(white)  Hobbs 80/20 since their quality has declined. I need to order some so was just curious what your thoughts are. Quilters Dream is a great quality and I currently carry their white 80/20 but it is on the thin side. There are not that many choices for white batting. Thanks, and have a great day! Lillie Hays

  4. I’m always amazed at how quickly you go from start to finish on a quilt. I love the look of this one; that blue really makes the batiks pop!

    Piecing scraps to make more blocks is what grandma would have done, even 40 years after the depression made it necessary. I wonder if current times will have a lasting impact on us? Beautiful quilt!
