I'm Honored

I want to thank Karen Griska (we all know her from her Selvage Blog) for including this quilt of mine in her new Online Quilt Museum. It's a quilt I call "Cabin in Bali". I'm particularly proud of this one because it is made entirely of scraps and fabric pieces that I had in my stash. The front and binding are all leftover batiks from at least three other quilts and the back is two pieces of fabrics that had been in my possession since at least the 1990s. Even the batting is pieced from four leftover pieces.

This quilt is on the "Exhibits" page in the exhibit labeled "Cabin Fever" . If you haven't visited the museum, you're missing a lot of quilters' eye candy. Take a look around and think about possibly submitting one of your quilts to the open exhibits or even setting up your own gallery.

Anya, this quilt is fabulous! I can see why Karen included it in her quilt museum. The colors are gorgeous. I love that it is made entirely from scraps...yet you would never guess that....all the fabrics look like they were picked specifically for this quilt. Lovely!

Beautiful quilt Anya! I've been saving batiks for years and this is a pretty pattern for using up those scraps. Congratulations for having a photo in the Selvage blog museum. How fun!!

Oh Anya, fabulous quilt and a fabulous inclusion of what can do when creativity sets in!
I'm going to look at her page now. I know you have mentioned her before this, but now, I'm on my way!
