Snow Day equals Sew Day

We woke up to lots and lots of snow.  Which meant I huddled up in my sewing room and sewed and sewed!!!   I got a lot of chain piecing done this morning ;)

This is a new project :)  I have been wanting a new quilt for my bed, it's always fun to have change.  So I am working up a king size version of my Braided Irish Chain pattern.   And guess what . . . I am using batiks!!!! 

I have not made a lot of batik quilts, but when I saw this beautiful Breath Fat Quarter Bundle  for Riley Blake Designs, I knew it was just the look I wanted.   So I am using the low volumes in this bundle for the prints and a gorgeous blue background.  I can't wait to share more as it comes together.   I would share the sketch of the quilt, but it would spoil the surprise ;)  

Now it's time to go press that massive pile of chain stitching ;)  So fun!!! 

I hope you are all having a very Happy Quilting Day!!!

  1. Batiks, love Batiks in a quilt. Deep tropical blues on a cold winter day = great combination for a quilt.
