The prize was a $150 voucher from Tulis Batiks. I selected a range of mostly blue and brown batiks with a small amount of lime green ones. My original idea was a log cabin quilt, not a traditional style but more like Edwina Mackinnon with her Cut and Come Again quilts (click here to see one on Laura Kemshall's blog).
For some reason I was a bit intimidated by just having a go and trying this technique so I never did.
After attending Gwen Marston's class last year I looked at the collection of batiks again and thought maybe I could try a Gwen version of log cabin. I had made a 12by12 that I liked (see here). So off I went.
The first blocks were good, the ones with too much brown were ok-ish. When I put them together - hmm. Some quilting friends have made some polite (!) comments, the most useful being they need to be separated by filler blocks.
