working on another ufo

It has been a while since I worked on this Batik Quilt.

I am trying to finish up some of my partially finished tops rather than packing up the pieces and then forgetting about them.

Here it is the last time I worked on it.

I made some changes to the original plan because I wanted a few areas that are unpieced to do some hand quilting that will show and to add some different colors.

Teddy helped with the layout Ideas.

I have to finish the border blocks for 2 sides and then sew the blocks together.


19 blocks….that takes a while.  I am slow at paper foundation piecing but the accuracy is worth the effort.

Happy Quilting

  4. Wow! That is beautiful. You sew all your quilts by hand?

    Hi Tim, I love the colors and the border is really unique

    • timquilts says:

      thank you ….the blocks are very traditional so I wanted a different border that coordinates….I think this works and it is not a hard one …but time consuming

    I had forgotten about this one….love the pattern, and the fabrics are great! Cannot wait to see it all finished.
    Teddy looks happy to be back to his assistant duties.

    I am learning so much from you. I really appreciate your willingness to share your expertise. I am a novice quilter and quilt buyer. Not sure how many you need to own to be considered a true collector. But I keep buying as I love textile art. Mary Ann

    The flashes of orange are just what that quilt needed. It must be good have space to lay out, and leave a WIP where it is rather than needing to put it away all the time.

    • timquilts says:

      Thanks….it did brighten it up!
      yes it is wonderful to have the space to leave it out and I find that it helps in the design too…because I have more time to look at it

  12. Sharron Evans says:

    This is pitiful to ask but do you happen to have a pattern for that design? I tried to make the design myself and was not successful, that’s putting it politely. I didn’t see it for sale last time I looked at your patterns. I need your help.

  13. Marla says:

    I like the changes that you made in this top. Nicely done.

  14. Lorij says:

    The addiitions are beautiful. Teddy did an awesome job.😄 It’s a gorgeous top.

    Hi Tim
    What beautiful batik! What do you do with all of your quilts when you finish? Mine are piling up around me and I find it hard to give one away. Jill

  16. Pam G. says:

    I remember this! Looking beautiful. Teddy is such a good helper.

  17. Ginney Camden says:

    This is going to be beautiful. I love the colors. Batiks are so pretty but i really don’t like hand quilting them. I think it’s much easier to hand quilt cottons, but sure like the look of batiks!

  18. Rose in VT says:

    Teddy looks very glad to see things back to normal around there!

    I think your second quilt is a lot prettier. I have never tried paper piecing.
    I first heard about it many years ago when someone told me about using it for a grandmother’s flower garden quilt. I though “Wow first making all those hexagons out of paper then cutting them out fabric. That is a lot of work!”
    I love your quilts, by the way. And your gardening (and the new studio).

    • timquilts says:

      that paper piecing is different …….the paper piecing I am doing is foundation paper piecing…..I think in a future post I will do a tutorial on how I do it……much different than cutting out lots of little paper pieces ……
