With only a few hours to spare . . .

Talk about leaving it til the last minute!!  But isn't that what deadlines are all about????
I don't remember now when I started this quilt - I selected bright balis in consultation with D#1 and did a class at my LQS.  I got the top finished over a year ago and 3/4 of it quilted.  So this year I have finished the quilting and done the binding so its all done now and ready to hand over to D & SIL.  I hope she still likes it.  (And of course it goes with the little table toppers I finished for January.)  Its quite big - it easily covers the top of a queen sized bed.


a close up - and better resemblance of the colours.

The pattern was called Transitions.

I would never even consider using those fabrics, but your result is stunning! I need to step outside my box a little.

I love the colors in this quilt! Is it a pattern I can get? I have to make a quilt for someone and this might be nice. I also want to use batiks.

Holly M - the pattern is called Transitions from Cozy Quilt Designs. You can find it by googling transitions quilt pattern. Its an easy pattern - strips sewn together then cut into triangles and re joined.

I am not a fan of batiks but simpy love what you have done with these, the addition of the black is just perfect.
