It’s been gifted and the recipient loves it. Now I can share.
I’d long planned on making this friend a quilt.
After auditioning many combinations, I settled on a grouping of reds, gold, rust, blue and purple batiks. The pattern I chose was Limelight by Villa Rose Designs. I’ve sung their praise before. I added three blocks to make it longer for his almost 6′ frame. Quilts should cover one fully for naps, I think. Robin at Robins Nest Custom Machine Quilting, back in MN, quilted it for me on longarm machine.
Here it hangs on the trusty backyard fence. That’s the only spot I have for photographing quilts.

This was fun to make and great way to use batik fat quarters. I’ll surely be making it again.
