Thinking About A Batik Quilt

I've spent the last few days thinking about making a batik quilt because thanks to 
 Soma at Whims & Fancies, I now have a beautiful bundle of batiks, plus other goodies.

Seriously, I can't even begin to tell you how excited I was.
It was an amazing early Christmas present!
Thank you Soma, Aurifil, and Moda! I feel like I won the lottery.
This is what I won...isn't it incredible!

Prize Package 1

Moda Color Daze 25 pieces of fat quarter fabric
A box of Aurifil thread
4 individual patterns by Whims And Fancies
Now I just have to figure out what to do with the batiks.
The Moda Color Daze Batiks by Laundry Basket Quilts

I kind of like the Storm at Sea pattern style, but I'm not sure.
Maybe something simple or maybe paper piecing the patterns I won from Soma.
I just can't decide. The choices are endless!

I guess I'll just make cookies today while I dream of batiks and what to do with them.


  1. Carol, I love batiks! They're great to sew, giving lots of depth and color variation. I'm sure whatever pattern you use will be great.

  2. Congratulations Dear! Batik fabrics are wonderfu as are Aurufil threads. How fun to consider your quilt options as you bake yummy cookies.

  3. Congratulations on winning your prize! I just bought 20 fat quarter batiks for a beautiful bear paw quilt. I'll show you the pattern Monday morning.

  4. Gorgeous bundle! I love the stage of planning and dreaming about what to make :) Have a wonderful holiday!

  5. Oh pretty! It will be gorgeous in whatever you do with it.

  6. I know one thing for sure, you don't need any patterns because you are so creative! I love these! I can't wait to see what you design!

  7. Very pretty what a nice early Christmas present.
