Fresh Plus
35.5"x 34.75"

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.
