Quilt o’the Day: September

Today I’m highlighting the quilt September from my book Quilt Batik! September started as the fabulous print batik that I used in the large squares. It came into the quilt shop when I was working there, and I knew I had to have some of it.

I wanted some of the motifs to be the same as the fabric, so I designed the little flower. My talented husband, Neil, had made a bunch of leaves just for the heck of it, and I modified three different leaves from his illustrations. I made the stems embroidery, and, voila! I had my appliqué motifs!

Then I appliquéd the motifs onto a great batik background, and added them into the 4-square units.

I was on a quilting retreat when I was bordering the quilt, and my friend, Mary, said she thought the piano key border needed to be scalloped. So, after quilting, I cut the scallops leaving the corners square. I love the result of this quilt! It makes me happy, and is a nice, bright autumn quilt.
