Batiks are beautiful

Last evening I finished "Friendship's Ribbons," a comfort quilt for a colleague. The batik "ribbon star" blocks were contributed by other librarians.  It is 47 x 53.



Signature squares pieced into the quilt back

When I pulled out batik fabrics for the blocks that I made I found a stack of 6" 9-patch blocks.  I put them up on the design wall and they became this 40 x 52 quilt, which is finished (including both horizontal and vertical hanging sleeves).
