Batik Rail all quilted up!

     Despite having some long arm issues, like having the hopping foot get loose and bust the needle guide and waiting for new ones in the mail, I was able to finish up the Batik Rail Fence inspired from the book, Cultural Fusion by Sujata Shah. I quilted each big block section differently- one pattern for the dark fabric and a different for the light. This helps me to try different things and practice more. I used Mocha Glide on the top and blue Omni in the bobbin.
     I really like the quilt. I have 7 blocks left, so I need to make some more to get another one done. All the batiks I have now are too dull for this and my local quilt shop closed in December. It is so hard to see if the colors on shops online are bright enough. It used 6" WOF strips. First, the quilting detail photos.





Whole quilt minus the not yet done binding-what color, hmm, or scrappy?

I love the variety of quilting stitches . . . adds SO much to the overall effect, especially when the quilt is in use. I've found that the online colors at Equilter and Delta Patchwork are pretty accurate across the board.

Dark green and purple are neutral colors that go with just about everything so either of them would work for binding.

Love your quilting! I like purple for the binding... I see Wanda agrees, so it must be right! LOL.

I love this quilt and am making one also, mostly from odds and ends in my stash. So no plan! I am wondering how you decide on the placement of the blocks, is it random. Thanks!
