This quilt was the major project that I began back in November when Bonnie and I went on the quilt cruise to Panama. The pattern is called Batik Waves and was designed by Karen Combs, our shipboard teacher for this class.
Karen recommended that participants bring an assortment of light and dark batiks which just about everyone did. There was one lady who had brought a collection of beautiful Japanese prints. And then there was me, who brought solids in a particular color way that reminds me of a plant that I like, along with newsprints for the lights.
Karen didn't throw me out of class for not following the initial instructions and, in fact, was a very patient and good-natured teacher. The pattern was complicated and many of us struggled.
My machinist quilted simple wavy lines; I thought there was enough going on in this quilt that it didn't want complex quilting. It's bound in the dark purple. I am delighted with how it turned out.
Today was a good day for photography, so out on the deck we went for a session. Those pictures are below. If you click once or twice on a photograph, it will enlarge so you can see the detail and the quilting.
Also, there's a picture of the version my sister made. She's the good girl who does what she's told!
