AHIQ, 12/27

BATIK IMPROV QUILT

I made this quilt top using half a drawer full of batik strips that I had no use for.  My daughter saw it and asked if she could have it.  Since I have not made her a quilt since she was 14, it's about time because her daughter is now 16 and I've made her two Quilts.  


I cut each paired strip set into 10-inch pieces and added the orange bits here and there to spark things up.  

Thanks for the AHIQ challenge this year.  I did enjoy working on the challenge steps on another top, but have not done the lettering yet.  Still debating on how to get that done. 
Looking forward to linking up again. Happy New Year!

Please have a look at Ad Hoc Improv Quilts doings at  Kaya's blog,  Sew Slowly, or Ann's blog, Fret Not Yourself

  1. Again, this is a beautiful quilt. Aren't we fortunate to have family that wants us to make them things? Your participation in AHIQ has added insight to the community and your quilts broaden our knowledge and inspire new ideas. Thanks, Paula.

  3. I like those little orange verticals a lot, and the narrow border too - they add just the right amount of interruption to the lovely batiks and how cool that this is going to your daughter. Thanks for linking up with AHIQ.
