Batik Quilt in Progress

I've already dubbed this's a jungle in here, but noone is fighting! Which bring up a question. Is it noone...or is it no one? I think it is noone, so I won't go looking to Mirriam and/or Webster to double check myself. I'll do that after I get off the air (so to speak). Now, on with the batik quilt work-in-progress!

Another question of the day: Why did I purchase such a small amount of yardage for each piece of batik I have in my fabric stash??? Perhaps it's because batik is a tad more expensive. Perhaps the HuMaN had put me on a fabric budget. Could it have been that my cupboards are already full of batik fabric. Who knows? Be that as it may, when I decided to make a quilt using my batik fabric, I didn't have enough of any one fabric to complete the pattern I had in mind.

Had to rethink what was on my mind....quickly pulled out all the batiks and arranged by color, then began to cut strips in different widths ranging from 1 1/2" to 3". Now that I'm organized, I just began to sew together strips from each color range until I had 30 12" blocks completed.

More pictures....and a completed quilt to follow. Yep, it's a jungle in here!

P. S. - Oh - and by the way - Merriam and/or Webster informs me that noone is incorrect, but that it takes two words to make No One. I'll continue to sew as I stretch my learning curve!


  1. This looks like it will be an interesting quilt, and it sounds like an interesting process, trying to make what you have work. I can get stubborn about that sometimes, wanting to make something, but refusing to buy more. I's fun, but challenging. I voted for no one - noone just doesn't look right to me!

  2. The warm reds in your quilt will be very welcome this winter, I'm sure. Very pretty colors.

    I seem to collect yarn the way you collect fabric. ;) I just can't pass a good buy and I have a daughter who is my chief enabler.

    I look forward to seeing the finished quilt.

  3. Absolutely L-O-V-E your Batiks! ! !
    I have a few pieces left from the 75 Fat Quarters Daughter #1 brought from from the Central Coast of California.

    Once I get more of my 'old' stash used up and outta here.

    Noone or no one
    co-operation or cooperation


  4. The name is most fitting.

    I'm looking forward to seeing more. Very intruiging. And beautiful.

  5. Batiks are so amazing. They just look great together. It's hard to anticipate fabric need ahead of a project. Whe I firast started collecting fabric I used to by 3 yards of what I liked at a time. I think there is some fabric in my stash that I will have forever.
