Batik Beauty

Before I left town to visit my mom a couple of weeks ago, I finished another gorgeous quilt for Georgia.  She always sends me the most fantastic quilts to finish.  This one was no exception.IMG_0667It was especially fun to use some bright variegated thread that really pops on the black background.IMG_0668The pictures really don’t do it justice, and I am no photographer, but these few will give you an idea.  I did a lot of stitch in the ditch, but most everything else was free-motion quilting.IMG_0673  IMG_0675 IMG_0676

I changed from a multi-colored thread to a variegated yellow/orange thread in some of the blocks.  I love how it really shows up on the dark fabric.  Some triangles I left un-quilted so they “pop up” with the heavy quilting around them.  I used 2 types of batting:  black 80/20 and wool.  It gives the quilt a lot of dimension.IMG_0674The quilt is about queen size.  I tried to get the the whole quilt in the picture, but this was the best I could do.   It was hard to see this beauty go out the door!IMG_0670See more gorgeous quilts in the gallery of my website at pamsquilting.com.
