I have to say that I don't remember the 60's at all...I was born in the 60's, but I only actually was around for 10 months of them. Unfortunately, I have no fond recollections of them at all.
In the 80's my husband tried to get me to wear tie dyed t-shirts. He didn't get very far, and batiks have always been a bit of a stretch for me, that is until now.
When Merrilee from Stitchin' It Up Quilt Shop got these batiks in I knew exactly what I wanted to make with them. Something with a twist that would make the fabrics pop and the Star Surround pattern from Happy Quilting I thought was perfect.
These fabrics are spectacular. I took these photos before I quilted the piece, and tomorrow I will have photos of the quilting as it is just too dark right now to even try getting them right (I figured I would finish after dark and I was right). Now for the giveaway...
Stitchin' It Up Quilt Shop has the best customer service you can wish for...my fabric arrived before I was even expecting it. You can win this fat quarter bundle of batiks and you have three chances to win. The winner will be drawn on Friday, October 4.
