These are pictures of the first quilt I ever pieced and quilted myself. It is from the book, "Batik Beauties" by Laurie J. Shifrin called Modern Mayhem. I made my version in blues instead of the earthy brown/oranges of the original. It measures 50" x 64" and was quilted by stitching in the ditch. I really love the simplicity of this pattern and the ease with which it went together. I am a bit sad when I look at it now that I only used medium toned blues. I didn't really know at the time how to use a variance of light through to dark fabric. Oh well, I still like it, but it will probably never be a favorite.
