A few years ago I cut up heaps of batik strips for bag making, and I made lots of lovey bags.
But I had a lot of the strips left over.

I found a use for them!
18 days ago I decided to make a Queen sized quilt for my eldest son, who was returning home to New Zealand,  from Australia.
I knew he would feel the cold.

This is what I made him:

I am calling it The Fern Quilt, because it has a Kiwi inspired fern.

I'm very proud of it.  It was the first time I had done Prairie Points too.  They were a nice touch.  I have stitched them down on the pillowcases.

I hope everyone is busy sewing?
