I have finished today my favorite quilt. While at the HMQS quilt show I bought a pile of batik fabric (you might remember the giveaway I did with them) out of all the batik's that I bought the Blue and Yellow ones were my favorite. This quilt is made from a pattern I am putting together that I call Color Blast. It is made using a disappearing 16 patch block. My plan is to sooner than later post the pattern as a free giveaway.
I have been working on this quilt for some time now. I finished the top just a month ago on June 23rd. I have been waiting for the new machine to show up so that I could quilt it, with out fear of messing it up. When I washed it I was afraid that I would get bleeding all over the place and put 5 color catchers in with it and they came out quite blue, I am glad I added those. Any one have much experience with batik washing?
This is now my second quilt that I have made using this pattern my first was my Fire in the Sky ,it is my bright orange quilt. As you can see I am keeping with the bright idea with this quilt being blue and yellow. I have one more quilt that I am doing with much more down to earth colors, my wife calls it my 80's Fabric. This quilt has 2 differences. First that the corners have corner stones (Is that what they are called?) and second its one row wider and one row longer so a bigger quilt.
