I finished "The Colourful Quilt" this last week. It is designed by Jacqueline de Jonge and is paper pieced. I did it with black instead of limey-green batik. It measures about 50" square. The back is a variation of the Over & Under quilt design from Quilt Sampler Fall 2011 magazine (Deb Burton). It is photographed at a gorgeous beach - Picnic Point in Edmonds on the Puget Sound.
This quilt was my first time using batik fabrics so that was kind of fun to not really worry about right side/wrong side. I did end up using several needles throughout the top when usually 1-2 per top is fine. I did the quilting using overdyed cotton threads for the background stuff and shiny rayon on the colored pieces.
It won a Blue Ribbon at the Evergreen State Fair in Monroe 2013 (99/100 points!) I was thrilled!
Thanks to Susan for taking a picture of me with the quilt! This is at one of my favorite shops - Gathering Fabric in Woodinville.
