Batik Quilt Finished


Pieced -- very simply -- quilted [simply again], bound, labeled -- Finished! The simplicity of the slightly rectangular pieces with simple stripping seemed enough for the bold batiks in the center of this quilt. The ends are pieced with other somewhat less exuberant batiks. The binding is another batik. It's a big splash of color -- in the picture part in sun, part in shadow -- because the weather is so undependable here I decided to take the picture while I had some sun.

As you can see in the photo below, in which the back in folded over at the top, the backing is also batik but contrasts with the deep colors of the front. The whole thing satisfies me and I plan to use it as a winter spread on the bed. So it will rest for a few weeks -- at the rate we're going summer isn't happening this year and winter will be here before we know it.
