Scrappy Design Wall

This past week I pulled out my bin of Batik scraps
and started making a new quilt,
using a pattern designed by a friend of mine,
Augusta Cole.
Her pattern is called "Cherokee Whispers"
and is available here.



After making LOTS of HST's....



 And sewing them into blocks...



And sewing the blocks together...



I ended up with this wonderful quilt.



Batiks worked so well with this pattern.
I did have to pay close attention to the direction of the HST's,
and only needed my seam ripper once!


This will be for a niece who loves the Native American designs.
I think it fits!
Now I've added another one to my list to be quilted!



Please visit Patchwork Times and Cooking Up Quilts
to see what others are creating.

Happy Quilting!

Love it, absolutely love it! I'm so dislexic with HSTs, I'd probably have to use the ripper more than once.

Beautiful! I get a headache just thinking about that many HSTs, so am very impressed.

That's so beautiful Ramona! You're right - the batiks are perfect for it! So colorful and definitely Native American looking. She'll love it!

No surprise...I love this quilt! I think this design could have easily involved more time with your seam ripper....much too easy to get those turned the wrong way. Good Job.

Well I would have never thought the a bunch of HST's could be native american. Great design!

Sara said...

Oh Ramona! That is an absolutely gorgeous quilt! I really love the effect the pattern has - the directions of the HST shapes and the colors! Hey that is really good only using your seam ripper once.
