The newest issue of Quiltmaker includes the 1st of 6 parts of a new series called "Love Blooms Here". I quite like it - but when I saw the quilt in batiks, rather than "folk art calico", I was sold!
So last night I pieced together the little friendship star blocks, and today I am hand appliqueing the basket block. Here's a little confession: I have a drawer full of batiks, but I have NEVER made a single thing with batik fabric. I think there is plenty of fabric there to complete this project.
