Intertwined by the River

 This is my favorite quilt that I have completed this year and I am entering it in the Fall Blogger's Quilt Festival. It is all out of batiks and I called it Intertwined by the River. You can read more about it here in my original post.

I was inspired to make this quilt after watching a video by Cozy Quilt, I already had the strip tube ruler and I love batiks so.....

Tomorrow will be my day on Ebony Love's book tour, I have my post finished as I have jury duty in the morning. The sun is shining but the temperature is only in the 50's. We are getting ready to visit some friends who live on a island and enjoy a campfire and some chili. I'm taking a warm coat!

This is just gorgeous! It's clear that you know how to show off batiks to the very best advantage - not a skill most people ever master.

Beautiful quilt and wonderful quilting. Your old Singer sure is a workhorse. Amazing it can do free motion. I have a tough time FMQ'ing on my "new" sewing machine.

I just voted for you. Good luck.
