However, this past winter I decided to try out batik fabric. I signed up for the HMQS 2013 Sew Batik Quilt Challenge.
A few weeks after delivering Miss Mia and the April 8th deadline only weeks away, I decided I needed to get down to business. Thanks to a wonderful mother-in-law and friend who came to watch and hold Miss Mia while I quilted, I was able to finish this challenge quilt and the Riley Blake Challenge Quilt.
All in all, I enjoyed creating this quilt and trying out batiks.
I don't expect to win anything, but I can't wait to get the quilt back and showcase it in my own home. I think it turned out great!
And I fell in love with the rich colors of the backing/binding fabric I ordered from Sew Batik!
