Laurel's Batik Beauty

I thought you would enjoy seeing this colorful batik beauty. One thing I do love about quilting is seeing the texture a motif gives the top. This one is no exception! Quilted with Deb's Feathers.

This was a big quilt top and this was the best I could take a photo and I'm standing on the couch.

Great quilting, Mary...as usual! *wink*

WOW! It looks great - the quilting adds texture but doesn't upstage the design. Excellent

"WOW", the colors are just wonderful and "Debs Feathers" makes it perfect! Batiks are so easy to work with and this purple really "pops"! Enjoyed seeing a pop of color since we woke up to snow here in St. Louis this morning!

Mary, my comp crashed and so far I haven't been able to update e-mail addresses until someone sends me one.
Would you please drop a line to my iamaquilter account? I am on my last set of instructions for a mystery quilt and would like to see if you can work it into your schedule. Hope to finish the quilt this week, though working almost everyday and that may delay it till next.
