In May I wrote about how I pieced several quilts for samples, using our hand drawn batik panels while I was attending my quilt guild chapter’s annual retreat. Before leaving this week for my family beach vacation, I assembled several quilt sandwiches in hopes of getting stitching done.
Of course along with towels and sunscreen, I packed my sewing machine and all necessary tools. Doesn’t everyone take their machine along when they travel? ☺
I free motion stitched my quilt sandwich, following the pattern of the dogs. I love the leaves in the plants Mahyar draws! The orange batik fabric was a good match for the warm colors Mayhar features. I like the idea that the Australian fabric, Sand Hill Charcoal, imitated waves of stitching. Finally, the striped binding from Frond had the great greens to blues coloration that echoed the colors in the panel.
