Official portraits.......

It was a nice sunny day yesterday so I set up a design wall in the living room and had the east light from the picture window lighting my quilts.  This is Crooked Cobblestones 7.  It is 20" x 24".  You can really get a good look at all of the batiks now.
This is Crooked Cobblestones 8.  It is 19.25" x 24".  I sewed on some labels by hand yesterday.  I don't usually label my quilts but for the show in June they need to be all labeled for easier identification if for no other reason.  I will have 38 pieces in the show so I have a lot more printing and hand sewing to do.

I just love these crooked cobblestones! I am determined to make one. I've got one started. Thank you for the inspiration!

I so enjoy your colorful quilts. Looks like Batiks are in my future and thank you for the label information.

These pieces are beautiful! 38 pieces is a lot of work to show and I can't wait to see the pictures of it all hung together.

Your photographs look very professional! They really showcase the batiks now.

Great quilts. Good luck with the show.

I didn't get back to check your Monday post and was pleased to see you added information about label fabrics, later in the day. I was thinking printer fabric would work, BUT I am so behind on many of the new fabrics out there, that I thought... Label Fabric must be something new. Thanks again Wanda.

Pretty Cobblestone's completed and ready for your show. I am getting excited for you. I am going to start a photo page of all you plan to take to the show come June, I will have your show to see up close and personal. (*._,*)

Beautiful ..... inspiring.

I love batiks and these quilts show them off beautifully. I think because the fabric isn't cut up too much and the design is quite simple it lets the fabric speak.

What a difference the lighting made on these. I love searching for the batiks I have in my collection.

I am surprised you do not label your quilts. I assume you so sign and date them though.

They are beautiful!!! The official portraits show off the beautiful fabrics more clearly.
I'm still planning to make one for my wall this year.

They both smiled real pretty for their portraits! LOL Seriously, they are beautiful.

Wanda, I'm a "catch-up on the weekend" blog reader of late, so pardon the comments squeezed in about a couple of your postings. I really like cobblestones #8 because of all the "lighted windows." At least, that's what it looks like from here, and that's a really neat effect. Also, I love the two journal covers with photos/scanned leaves. They're very personal - and beautiful, of course! Once again, I wish I had an ink-jet printer, but I don't think I'd use it that often for photos, so it's probably not worth the expense...yet...we'll see. :-)
