When I saw the posting for this blog hop I knew I wanted to make a quilted peace sign. Unfortunately I wasn't quite sure how I would go about actually sewing it. Luckily I found a peace quilt to inspire me made by Rene over at Rene Creates. Of course I wanted to miniaturize my peace quilt, so I started
by making lots of 2" pinwheel blocks from my brightest 1960s'ish happy batik scraps, and added in some squares of my favorite batiks. I really enjoy sewing with batiks, and I even like how they smell when you press them! YUM!
It was all good until I started figuring out the math for the background strips. Oh my. That is when the fun ended!
But eventually, through trial and error (mostly error!) I got the top together, and jumped right into the machine quilting.
The fun was back!
Here is how "My Peace" quilt turned out... pretty groovy!
I plan to take a better photo of the quilt outside in a peaceful place when there is a nice weather fall day. Thanks again to Madame Samm and to Mary for organizing this fun blog hop for us. I encourage you to visit my blog friends to see what they created with Batiks today.
Here are the links...enjoy!
