Sassy Batiks!!!

7:47 PM

When people tell me you cannot do something, I'm always itching to prove them wrong!!!

So when I heard it too many times, that Batiks cannot be used in modern quilts, I decided to try to break that myth!!!

First thing, I ordered batiks from Tina, who apart from being the ONLY female Bernina Dealer also has a lovely shop-studio The Square Inch at Chennai!

Aren't these beauties just gorgeous???

Add to it amazing customer service and super fast delivery!!! Tina, you're a dream come true for me!!!

So after a lot of pondering about what I wanted to do, I got started! I knew I wanted to improv piece on a black background, but didn't know what I wanted it to look like!

Inspiration struck me when I was sleeping and I could not wait for it to be morning and go to my studio!!!

Here's my finished quilt!!!

I improv pieced the letters along with the black solid!!! It was super fun to make this one!

I quilted it densely with free motion straight lines! Thanks to my BSR, this was a breeze!!!  slightly less terrifying!

Me, Ross and Aurifil!!! Partners in crime!
