GECKO QUILT USING ISLAND BATIK'S FABRIC


Son #5 if coming in tonight (this morning at one) and so while I was waiting for him to come in I finished this Gecko Quilt using Island Batik's fabric.





I just have to say that I love love triple love this fabric.  Sure it is bright but it is ohhhhh so fun!!

I enjoy sewing with batiks because they do not have the stretch other fabrics have so it is easier to sew more precise, that is if you cut correctly....hummmmm

Such a bright and fun quilt Barb! I love the colors - I can almost feel the mist from the rainforest :) Do geckos live in rainforests? Oh well, my science skills could definitely use work LOL!!!
