A Break from Surface Design

Batik Baby Quilt

In between all of the surface design activities last weekend and into the week, I have been sewing on this little sweetie.  I was going through my scrap stash the other day and found a good size stack of 5″ squares.  These came from a couple of different sources, but mostly from a time several years ago when Debra Lunn of Lunn Fabrics came to speak at my quilt guild.  She gave out a small stack of their beautiful batik fabrics to everyone who was there.

Obviously nothing fancy here…just 5″squares sewn together, and slap on a 6″ border and voila!  You have a baby quilt!  But it was nice to have some sewing that didn’t require much concentration and still came together lovely.  Sometimes simple is best.

I’m looking forward to getting this quilted.  It is first in line now behind the Christmas gift quilting and in front of the vintage quilts.  Lots of tops already to be quilted, and still sketching out ideas for art quilts.  This will be an exciting winter in the studio!
