Sometime last fall I was given a selection of batik fabrics in the red-rose-purple-blue spectrum. I loved the colors and immediately wanted to make a quilt. I made the square-in-square blocks but then I began another project -- I think the blue strip one that was in the previous post. And then another and another project came along. So it goes. Finally I put this one together in the double sided way I really enjoy -- it gave me a change to use a wider selection of batiks from my sizable stash. Now it's done -- the top picture is the top, the next is a detail and the bottom
picture is the back with solid squares. Just this week I realized the purple-blue Kaufman fabric (not a batik) that's in the border was just the right colors. For the border on the back I used a darker batik I've had a very long time.
Pheww!~ So it's done. Quilting projects always take longer than I expect. I love the colors still, The next one is on my design wall and I can't wait to get on with it. Meanwhile two, or really, three other quilts are parking in the short term parking area in my brain.
The mid-70s are a surprise! Part of me remains in the 50s -- age, I mean, not decade of 20th century. It's a joy ride, new experiences land in my lap and I've become a better quilter, poet, writer than I expected. It's a rich life for a person never rich financially. Hey, this is what the mid-70s are like!
