I'm in search of a blog topic. There was a "what's on my bed" quilt link up over a week ago in the blogosphere...and since a professional photographer was at my house for the marketing brochure...it's an opportunity to share a quilt I made a few years ago.
There are actually two quilts on my bed, but the bottom one is just providing more length and the border works!
Here's the amateur photo. This quilt is a strip quilt pattern from the book, "More Strip Clubbing." (A Cozy Quilt Design.) I made matching shams for square Euro pillows...good for square block designs!
I used batiks from my stash. It is one of my favorite quilts. As I recall the pattern was quick and easy plus there are a couple of other strip quilt patterns in this book I would love to make one day.
Additional posting: I decided to show the quilt that is underneath...why not?
What can I say...another batik beauty! This is my version of a Kim Brackett design, Bali Sea Stars. I haven't gotten the shams made for this one yet. This star block is my absolute favorite block design. It's from Kim's first book, "Scrap-Basket Surprises." I hear she has new book due to release in May working with charm squares. I'm sure it will be wonderful.
