I really loved how the variegated gold Aurifil 4150 played with all of the batiks, blending into the background of some and providing gorgeous contrast on others. This is fast becoming one of my favorite go-to colors for machine quilting!
Here is a closer view of a primary block:
Pattern Source: The Premier Fall Issue of Quilt Sampler Magazine (2004)
Pattern Designer: Jill Petit of Jillybean's Pride, Oakville, Ontario
Finished size: 87-1/2 x 112 inches
Machine pieced and machine quilted by me on my domestic sewing machines
I would love to make a smaller throw size version of this quilt sometime in the future, and may just have enough batik scraps to make one approximately 60x60 inches in size, perfect for our couch.
