My ramblings on stitching, reading, writing, tv, knitting, driving long distances, the weather and anything else that comes to mind

(translates to 'very colorful')
When I saw this wall hanging in 'Patchwork Spezial 1/2012' my first reaction was "Wannamakewannamakewannamake!!!" ;-)
Well, never it by said that I don't be willing to follow through.
The pattern in the magazine uses 22 different batik fabrics, I used 80 different of whatever I had laying around. There's some batik fabrics, but also quite a few solids. The patchwork part took up most of last weekend, quilting and binding maybe a day more. The only thing I did for the quilting was to carefully follow the edges of all single houses (as defined by having a roof)
I handstitched the label in the back
Now I only have to decide if this is going to hang here at home, or comes with my to Dresden ....
