Batik Scraps

Last time I was at a Project Linus meeting they had batik. Batik yardage and scraps. Most of the scraps were 6”-8”x 22” or WOF. Did I need another project? Well, YES, I had just delivered 2 finished quilts; and who doesn't want to come home with a bag of batik scraps. I selected many scraps and some yardage to come home with me. Have finished two tops. An Uneven Rail Fence Quilt:

Then a scrappy top of purples, teals and blues. I used the “Basic Math Quilt” pattern off Moda Bake Shop as a starting point for this quilt. Trying to use what I had, I added a few blocks that have 3 strips.

This quilt went together so fast, great for a donation quilt.

Two finishes this week!

This is a fun quilt. Fun striped fabric and bright colors. I originally was doing a simple rail fence design along with the squares between rows, but I did not like the roosters sideways. Almost pulled out the seam ripper, but knew the blocks would get stuffed in a box. So I just cut the seams off. Made more strips of squares and ended with this quilt.

Easy quilting. Long chains of wavy lines leaving some of the puffiness in the quilt. Love this back. This quilt makes me smile.

Finished a Uneven Rail Fence quilt for TAPS.

This went fast. Used long scraps from other projects and some strips a friend had gifted me. Quilted long fingers with wavy lines.
