My first batiks…

These three quilts hang above my desk at work. I made them from this book by Kumiko Sudo about ten years ago. They are the first thing I ever made with batiks, and I’ve been hooked ever since!
The first block is a morning glory, the center one is a purple coneflower. Each one has a different hand quilted background design done in DMC floss, and some embroidery. This was my first real attempt at embroidery stitches and applique.
This is the clematis block, and below is a detail of the hand quilting in this block.
And a detail of the coneflower:
I’ve done many quilt and applique projects since this one, but I’ll always be proud of this “first attempt”.
