Batiks partner well with soft corduroy

Delicious colors for this one. I made matching quilts for my two oldest daughters, Cindy and Faith who insist on calling themselves twins even though they are 4 years apart. So cute! I ended up quilting a straight line in the ditch for this one.

Close up of the batik pattern. I love the swirl!!

I ended up showing them to the girls in their unfinished state on Christmas morning. I couldn't get them finished because of my car accident but I wanted them to see what they would be getting. Needless to say, they LOVE them. One is now finished and the other is coming along quite slowly, but making progress non the less.

I bought some beautiful brown batiks in November with some chocolate brown corduroy that I can't wait to get started on. I'll post some pictures of those soon. I haven't decided on which pattern I'm going to use for the browns yet. Hmmmm
