Rainbow Kisses

I finally have something finished to show here ! I’m calling this one “Rainbow Kisses”.

The quilt measures approximately 48″x60″. I used Alyces’ Tic Tac Toe block tutorial to make the blocks. The batik kiss fabrics are from a Timeless Treasures 10″ square bundle I bought several years ago. I’m so happy that I have been able to use half of them… I’m taking suggestions on how to use the remaining 20 squares ! The background fabrics were all bought here and there as stash fabrics.

For the quilting I had started doing an organic wavy line pattern and then picked it all out and went with this crosshatch grid-work. I’m happy that I went to the trouble of starting over; I think this emphasizes the kisses better.

After auditioning several binding fabrics I used the same fabric for the binding as I had used for the backing – another batik. I think this is the “year of the batik” for me !

Sorry about these pictures. The quilt is actually quite square but it was hard keeping it pinned in place against the building. The pictures were taken earlier in the week under grey skies and windy conditions. I had looked at the weather forecast and decided to do the photo shoot under less than perfect conditions because the temperature was dropping through the week and it is now minus 27 degree celsius !!! and still windy !

Keep warm !   Thanks for having a look !

I’m linking up with Amanda for Finish it up Friday.

    Those kisses (or maybe the hugs) really pop against those pretty blues and white background. Aptly named, too!

    The layer cake kisses look great against the grey background prints. I especially like the grid quilting. I often read that it’s best to quilt a curvy design over very linear quilt blocks but, as they say, ‘rules are made to be broken’!
