Welcome to my quilting world. Here is my entry in Amy's Creative Side Blogger's Quilt Festival - Quilt Photography category, an original design by me, Batiki Argyle.
|Batiki Argyle - 70 x 81|
This quilt started out as a simple disappearing four patch but I always seem to have a need to make a project a little more challenging.
I also often find myself thinking of ways to "connect" blocks together. A few hours spent on EQ7 led to this design. This pattern is free on my blog...just look to the top right corner for my free patterns. So far I just have one but I do hope to add more soon.
I quilted Batiki Argyle on my Nolting Fun Quilter. I used double batting to enhance the quilt design and give it a heavier weight. For years I have been doubling up on quilts to keep warm in my home...after all I do live in Alaska. After reading about other quilters doubling their batting, I tried it and have pretty much been hooked since then.
This quilt was given to a man who has been a wonderful mentor to my 19-year-old son. For the first time I hand-embroidered the label. I loved the result and will probably do this again when I gift a quilt.
Thanks for spending time with me today.
