one thing one week challenge


I hardly need a challenge to get things done but when Amy amyscreativeside.com posted her one week challenge, I figured it would be reasonable to finish the last blocks for this batik "round and round" quilt and lay them all out in a space bigger than I have at home. I was handed this kit by a quilting friend over the summer so I would have something to travel with and thought by adding my own stash I could make it large enough for my daughter's bed. This is not the final layout. I will allow my daughter to decide that in March. So...what was the hurry? We climb the mountain because it's there.

  2. I love all of those colors and that design just looks fun!
    That would be a really neat pattern for making a kids' quilt for Project Linus. I really like that one.

  15. What a beautiful quilt - I love batiks with their saturated color. I love that we are joined across the ocean by fabric and stitches. Haha - yes, we climb the mountain because it's there.
