Batik Quilt

Over the weekend I quilted Elaine's Batik Block of the Month (BOM) quilt with the "Curley Q" panto. I have quilted several of these BOM quilts and they are all beautiful.
Aren't these blocks all so pretty?
Borders with appliqued flowers and leaves.

Purple batik backing.
I am not sure if you have heard about the 4 path donation quilt for Lissa? You can read all about it on Jane's blog. Here is my block and signature square. It is not too late if you would like to make a donation block.
I started the blue and green quilt more than a year ago. The pattern is in Kim's book,"Scrap- Basket Surprises". I love her book...perfect for making quilts from your stash.
I am cutting my stash up and making my own layer cakes and jellierolls. I wish I can focus on one project at a time. But oh no I am always thinking of the next quilt.
Happy Quilting until next time!

Hi Millie, Boy you are the busy one. Can't seem to get in the mood or have the time to quilt or piece.
That BOM is so beautiful. All those different blocks. We see hawks daily in the fields behind our home searching out mice. Strange to see them in a subdivision. Happy stitching!!

Millie, you are so organized! Your next quilt project looks interesting. We had a hawk in our backyard in the fig tree several years back. It startled me! But at least it didn't bother any of the chickens.
