A Blue and White Quilt (Part One)

A few years ago I purchased some pretty blue and white batik fabrics at the Houston Quilt Festival.  I was sorting through my fabric collection when I spotted them and decided it was time to cut them up and have some fun with them.  As you can see in the photos, the fabrics have lots of geometric shapes that could be cut up and rearranged into different designs.  I’ve always admired those Ukrainian egg designs (pysanky), that were hand crafted using paints and wax resists and thought I could come up with some of my own designs for eggs using the fabric shapes.  As you can see in the photos, once I started playing with the shapes, it was hard to stop laying eggs!  I now have 25 different eggs that can be pieced into a quilt.  The next step will be figuring out how to set the eggs into blocks and piece them into a quilt top- that will be a future post.
