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!
