Shadow study 2

As in, part 2 of the previous post. This quilt was a lot of fun to do: except for the background, which is stars, the fabrics are all batiks or hand-dyed. I loved making the little bitty squares. The shadow strips are almost as big as they are!

All three of these quilts are coming to Asilomar with me for another class, this one in machine quilting. It's been a long time since I was able to do any quilting to speak of; I have some tops, from classes, which I've been rounding up and finishing up, but nothing quilted. Hence my recent quilt-by-check spree! But now I'll have five days to practice, get comfortable with the machine again, and hopefully learn some new techniques. Hard to believe it's been ten years since I last taught machine quilting!
