Finally ready!

It's been insane around here with work, winter approaching, Christmas around the corner (yikes), and the occasional cold. I feel like this pattern in particular has been like running a marathon to get it out. But alas, it's ready and will be at Cottonpicker's this afternoon, will be shipping elsewhere today as well.
Leafy Greens is one of my favorite quilts (I know I probably say that with all of my quilts, but...). With each quilt I either make or design I try a new technique, or use new fabrics, or something to expand my abilities or experiences. This was my first all batik quilt. Did I ever mention how much I love batiks and didn't know it until I made this beauty?
They have a different feel than normal printed cotton, the fact that on most of them there is not a "right" or "wrong" side helps (especially when you sew late at night and are a little tired!), I just love them.
If you haven't worked with them yet, I strongly urge you to try out some batiks in the near future. The manufacturers have outdone themselves lately and the patterns and colors available are unlike previous lines. It's absolutely incredible what they can come up with.
So, I hope you like this pattern and if you can't find it at your local quilt shop, please ask them to order it for you! It never hurts to ask! If not, you can find a list of quilt shops on the "Where to Buy" page that would be more than happy to send it to you.
Well, let me know what you think of this latest pattern and don't forget to check the Moda Bake Shop for the latest "recipe" there. My latest creation for Moda will be posted on the 20th of November. It's going to be crazy around here between relatives coming home for a visit and Turkey Day/CarbFest 2010 right around the corner. I will try to stop in and say hi, but if we don't chat as often you will know I'm not ignoring you! Take care and until next time...
