When we last met at the Christmas break-up party, we were given a paper bag with strips of batik fabric inside. We were told to make something with the strips and include a stamping or printing technique.
Here is a photo of some of the strips I received because I forgot to take a photo of them before I started the quilt.
We all had different colour-ways and mine were blues, purples and browns. I had two months to make something and ended up making it the weekend before it was due!
We were allowed to add some other fabrics and I had to add some lights because my original composition was too dark.
I used some Thermofax screens to print onto some blue fabric that I had that seemed to go with the batik strips.
Here is my quilt top before I did the quilting.
It didn't take long to quilt because it is only an A3 size and I called it Midnight Blue.

I have been very busy making two other quilts this year, one for a competition and a project for a magazine but unfortunately I am not allowed to show either to the public yet.
Here is a little detail of one of them though.

I have also been to a few exhibitions so as soon as I get the photos ready I'll blog about them.
Bye for now,
