Exuberance!

I have been having fun!
I found this


and am using it to back this

I'm quilting from the back, using the batik's flowers as my pattern
(have I ever mentioned that I just love batiks???)

and getting this on the front


I'm really liking the contrast between the straight lines of the front and the floral exuberance of the quilting!

That is working really well. Batiks are incredible - the colours, shades and tones. I definitely have to make at least one quilt using them.

Gorgeous free-motion quilting. The 'quilt from the back' idea is always in my mind when I see a great batik block print, but I've never actually tried it - your quilt looks great!

WOW! Excuse me while I scoop up my jaw as it just dropped!!! Your quilting is absolutely stunning! What a wonderful idea too, to use the batik flowers as your quilting design, I have never seen that done before. I am a lover of batiks also, and love what you have created!

Your back-to-front quilting is just perfect on that quilt.
I am also a batik lover......they work for everything!
