Laura here, well my start was not as fabulous as I had hoped. My blues, which still await me, gave way to what seemed a wonderful idea in theory based on a Bible verse from the book of Isaiah. Practice is a different story. Sort of pleased with the direction now, although I have never worked with batiks before and hence am lamenting the fact that I am not able to use the dozens of different fabrics that I'm used to. How come what is meant to be an exercise in frugality (scrap quilting) always costs so dang much? *SIGH*

These are beautiful! I am sorry you are having a hard time... is there anything we can help with?

it's all good, just not as good as I had intended... requires a road trip to a local quilt store where I will endure the frowny faces when I say "An 1/8 yard of each of these 20 fabrics please." :)
