I’ve started this quilt a bit more than 3 years ago. Actually a dozen of us in Singapore started it together. A friend organised a retreat where we all shared a bit of Batik. The original idea was to sew four blocks. But then… I got carried away… and ended up with 14 blocks. Only 12 won at the blocks audition. It’s huge (2x2 m – 78x78”).
I added the borders and sandwiched the quilt quite quickly but then I decided to hand quilt it. That was a bad decision, it’s far to hot to hand quilt in S’pore.
A long-arm quilter friend quilted some large flowers all over, and now I wonder why it took me so long to finish it and so long to show it here.
