This Batik Twister is for my sister and her hubby. I don't have to worry about any of them seeing these because they do not read my blog. Several years ago I won a drawing at my quilt guild and won lots of fat quarter batiks. I really just didn't know what I wanted to do with them until I started seeing these twister quilts. I think I will name this September in the Rain. It is a nice sized lap quilt for their living room which she has decorated in very warm fall colors.
Next is my first trip around the world ala Eleanor Burns. I just love her books because everything is step by step instructions and so easy to follow. This fabric also came from my stash. I had a little trouble with one of the greens, I don't know if I measured wrong or if the fabric stretched, but during construction had to readjust at that one square. This flimsy will be a gift for my brother and sister-in-law. Their living room is done in soft green and blues, so I think this will be a good couch cuddle quilt for them.
I don't know if I will quilt these myself or not, I might have to send at least one of them to the longarmers if I run short of time. Sneak peak of design wall
This year feels more productive - I think making the lists and trying to keep written documentation of what I am working on each week has kept me focused. It is a good feeling. Gotta go - work tomorrow. Adios Bernie
