Circles Batik Wallhanging done w/ photos


Recommended Posts

I'm on a roll finishing some of my own quilts. This is a wallhanging that is going on our diningroom wall. I played around with the eccentric attachment to my Quiltazoid for many of the circular spirographs. Thank you to those of you that have your samplers posted on the QZ site -- it got my ideas going. This is my first try posting photos from Flickr:

I forgot to upload a closeup of the border. The traveling leaves are modeled after Marcia Steven's Burning Bush Leaves/Golden Threads pattern pack:

They are quilted using Rainbows Turning Leaves #857 (gold and green), which is one of my current favorite threads:

I tried something different with the batts. I used Quilters Dream Poly Select, instead of QD Cotton Select for the base batt, with QD wool for the top layer. I was not sure if the poly would be strong enough for the quilt to hang right, but with the top being made of all closely woven batiks and a strong back, plus heavy even quilting, it turned out fine.
