Batik quilt #2 - it's finished!
« on: November 22, 2019, 15:12:53 PM »
I did start a thread on my second batik quilt but it was in the general bit so I thought that now I've begun the actual thing I would put my progress under Current Projects.
I have completed my first block.  It's easy to put together but was a bit tricky to square up.  It's 14 1/2"  I can chain piece the following ones but wanted to complete one first to see if it was ok.  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
It is straight, the sides are a lens aberration.

That is beautiful.   :loveit:
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

That is gorgeous, love your fabric choice.

Have you decided on a layout yet?  I bet you can do a variety of things with that block.

'A lens aberration' - I must remember that next time something looks wonky  :D

Love the colours.

That's lovely. I could be persuaded towards the Darkside by that.

@Pearl I have no idea what the block is called.  I just saw a quilt that I liked and zoomed in to see how it was constructed and made it up from there.
I have finished the first set of 4.  There will be 3 sets of 4, each set of blocks using different fabrics for the strips (because I started with a jelly roll).
Here is the first set, I don't know how I will actually use them until I have done all of them.  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

That is lovely. I do like the way Batik shows up patterns and it is so neat

I look forward to seeing the finished  quilt

Great

I have a jelly roll and all the other fabric for a quilt waiting patiently in a drawer for inspiration. It isn't batik - very floral which is not really 'me'
That block looks interesting though
