Just over a year ago, my quilt group had a paper bag challenge.
We each had to put a total of a meter of fabric in a paper bag.
We then brought our paper bag to one of our meetings and each pulled one of the bags out of a box.
My bag had a half meter of a black batik with rust colored maple leaves on it, as well as 2 fat quarters of coordinating batiks.
I had quite a few scraps of batiks that would go with the fabrics from my bag. So I started looking through my books and magazines for a pattern.
I found this pattern in the book Charmed and Dangerous by Heather Mulder Peterson.
And so was born my Batik Star.
You can see that I used the black batik with maple leaves as the inner border, and points for the star.
My mom did some amazing custom quilting on it.
My mom's feathers are gorgeous!
I love those little pebbles and asked her to use those for the background filler. Isn't it effective?
And here it is in our living room!
I am SO pleased with this wallhanging!! Thank you Cheryl for the lovely fabric!
