In love with batiks

It's official ... I'm in love with batiks!

I've been working on a king size quilt, just finished up last night.  The pattern is "Bits & Bars", Laurie Shifrin's, from her "Batik Gems" book.  There are about 20 different fabrics in this beauty.  I finished it with decorative embroidery stitches around each block and down every other seam inside the blocks.  

The batiks are an absolute dream to work with! I just have to be careful to wipe up the drool from admiring them :)
