Rockin' Round The Improvi-Robin

Hello Everyone,

My part in the Improvi Robin this month was fun for me.  From the moment I received the piece below from Stephanie...


I knew that all I wanted to do was to add just to the top.  I had several ideas, but waited until the last minute as I had other deadlines to meet first.  But, lately I have been loving these colors together... eggplant and green just are fascinating me of late.  

You can see what I mean in this quilt that I recently finished.  Just click here.  I will wait for you to come back.  See what I mean?  Don't these colors just really go together well?

So now for my part...



I just added to the top.  I added the purple and mauve batiks with the Asian fabric as the background.  Sorry for the darkness in the photo above,  I definitely tried retouching and editing it, this was the best I could get.  But the next photo is a better depiction.


Here is the top part that I added.  I really like how it finishes it off.  Just enough, it didn't really need much more.  Now it is off to Miki for her to do her round.  I can't wait to see what she will do with it, I am sure it will be gorgeous!  If you would like to see the progression on some of the other pieces in the round robin, just click here to go to the Flickr group.

Speaking of batiks... this weekend only you can take 15% off ALL batiks in stock in the shop!!! Yes, that is right, just use the code batik15 at checkout to receive your discount.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend!


Until Next Time...
