Bronwen's Fantasy-My Batik Adventure

 
 
I have a very colorful mother in law!
 
My Batik Adventure began when I decided to make my mother in law a quilt.
Bronwen is colorful, vibrant, bold and she loves adventure. 
I poured over magazines and blogs for months and months trying to decide on just the right fabric and pattern.
Hmmmm.....would this be a good oppourtunity for me to explore something different?
 
 I had seen Batiks but never quite "got it". Symetry is a very strong tendancy for me, most of the time and Batiks seemed random.
 
 
 
 
 From the minute I laid out the first block, I could see that this was going to turn out to be something special.
 
 
It's colorful and bold and adventurous and ZANY, just like her. The more I worked, the more excited I became.
 

                                     What will Bronwen think of this?
