I walked into my LQS (which happens to be Keepsake Quilting in Center Harbor, NH) on a quiet mid-week day and asked for assistance buying what I needed to make a quilt. Well, you know what that led to! The pattern that was recommended by the shop employees was Sassafras by June Bronson.
Let's talk about the fabric. Batik. I did not know at the time that batik fabric was not "cool." Picking up this quilt recently after a couple of years of working with non-batick quilting cotton, I have to say I like the feel of the fabric. You know how lovely Art Gallery fabric feels? This quilt feels like that, soft and very smooth. It is the ONLY batik quilt I have made to date but now that I have revisited this quilt, I am definitely not ruling batiks out of my repertoire.
I am going to quilt this and put it to work at the house in the woods. This will be my first time quilting batik fabric; always something new to learn! Quilting suggestions welcome!
