Batik Plus Quilts for Charity
Clearly, I’m going through a Plus Quilt phase. More accurately, I want to use up some of my fat quarter stacks in a fast, efficient way ->
Batik Plus Quilts
Each Plus Quilt uses 12 Fat Quarters. I use the Plus Quilt Worksheet to plan and organize the quilt without using a design wall. I have started to sort my cut pieces onto my ironing board.
After trimming the column ends of my quilt top. It is ready to head to the longarm quilter.
But wait – We aren’t sending it out!! Since my mom has the long arm at her house and my son is working on summer volunteer hours we thought it’d be a great idea to let him quilt the two batik quilt tops.
He was able to quilt “horizontal wavy lines” which really looked like water waves when the quilts were done. Of course, he did wind loads of bobbins and was tasked with changing them out, too.
Here’s the second quilt top. It has much more blues and greens and is quilted in the same horizontal-wavy-line motif.
Lots of concentration on that dude’s face. =)
Of course, our quilt needed a label, so here is his first hand-sewing event.
He’ll be going a quilt guild meeting with me to present the tops to the outreach committee.
He did a great job at the guild presentation/ show’n’ tell portion and LOVED going up on stage. Updated to add this photo:
