When You Can't Felt, Quilt

It's been a very long week of trying not to add to my back injury. Since I can't felt, in an attempt to sit still I got out a cathedral window quilt that has been sitting in the closet for ages. It has about a zillion tiny stitches to go unless it becomes a lap robe instead of a queen size, which was my original intention. The fabrics are lovely batiks which are eye candy. It isn't technically a quilt because there is no batting, but with all of the layers of fabric it is quite heavy and doesn't need any.


  1. Fabulous colors!! I LOVE batik fabrics!

  2. Wow Elizabeth, it looks so good before you finish it. At least you have something to keep you busy.

  3. I love batiks, too! The colors are really saturated and remind me of underwater coral reef colors.

    Hopefully I'll be back to felting soon. Every time I look at other people's blogs or flikr there's something inspirational.

  4. Wow this is absolutely Stunning
    I hope your back gets better soon
    cheers Karen xo

  5. Thanks, Karen. It'll be a long time before I lift a spare tire at arms length again!
