I have completely fallen for the Modern Quilt movement. The fresh lines, contemporary designs, and great colors appeal to me. So, I am trying my hand at a few.
I made these batik window blocks earlier...These have just been overdyed for a second time and still have the wax on them. I am rinsing them on the line outside, and letting them dry before bringing them inside to boil off the wax.
and finally paired them up with some white sashing and a bit of pieced
orange sashing to create the orange plus motif. Then finished it off
with some hand quilting in the upper right corner. I love the offset
nature of the big blocks, and the organic feel of the batik.
