batik flimsy

yesterday finally got the batik blocks assembled into a flimsy.  i am sooo loving that plum solid, thank you Janet L.!  this will be tied and is spoken for already, so hopefully another finish soon?  i hope.... **** our frigid weather continues with wool socks and fleece pants in constant use.   we do usually get a short spell of this every year, except last winter, so it isn't uncommon and is tolerable.  **** quilting continues on the autumn change quilt, a perfect pastime for this time of year.  maybe 2 finishes at once?  perfect!

  1. It's a true beauty, Grace. Do you have room to put up frames and tie quilts?

  2. The batik flimsey looks great! I love the way the plum solid that you mentioned gives it so much unity throughout the pattern. What fun for you to work on something bright and cheery during the winter landscape of grey tree bark, evergreens, blue skies and white snow. Talk about a limited palette, LOL!

  3. Grace, a pretty quilt! Lucky recipient. If you are inclined, could you share how you tie your quilts? I have never tied a quilt, but would like to try. Always love to see your latest creation.

  4. This is so gorgeous! That solid was a fantastic touch that I would never think of doing in the midst of batiks.
