Quilt

As usual blogger put it sideways, but I like it this way. It's a machine quilted hanging that's  about 18" by 28". The Batik was my starting point. I wanted to hand stitch with back stitch to highlight some of the print then wondered what would happen if I extended it into the blue surrounding fabric and changed the color to the red.

I think it's a good way to "marry" the batik with the background. Here's a detail. Batiks are some of my favorite fabrics.

I think it's perfect sideways. It's a great quilt and your stitching is perfect.
