old dogs learn new tricks...

i have been
quilting
for many years...
.
decades in fact
yet i have never
not one single time
pieced anything
 using batiks
there i said it
hard to believe i know
not sure why exactly
as i love looking at them
finally
 i decided the time was now
it helped that i fell in love
head over heels in love with
a spring 2011
 hoffman bali pop release
i started out small
important for an old dog
learning a new trick
 by atkinson designs was perfect
when i was finished
i had some leftover strips...

another first for me
an intentionally pieced backing
love how it came out
off it went to be quilted on friday
i can't wait to see

I can't wait to see either! This might just be what gets me to dive into the batik pool!
