Colorburst 2

I have finished the second colorburst quilt now.  It is 34" square.











I put a batik on the back, a multicolor print.
My fingers are sore from 2 days of sewing batik bindings.  Some of them are hard to push a needle through on the crosswise grain of the backing.







This outside photo on an overcast day has truer color than the inside photos.

Such a gorgeous photo -- and with a waterfall, even. Hugs to you - hope your fingers recover quickly (I don't like hand stitching batiks either).

You are looking great Wanda, and the new quilt, in the brighter, stronger colors, is gorgeous. I don't remember seeing a waterfall in any of the previously posted pictures, so I guess you borrowed it from another location. It adds another dimension to an already beautiful photo. Hugs

Love your quilt. I use a #10 quilting needle to do my binding without a thimble when stitching batiks.

Gorgeous quilt just bursting with colour, quilts always seem to show truer when the photos are taken outside, especially when taken in such a lovely setting.
