Twist to the 60s Blog Hop - Day 7

Hearts on Fire - Cookie Cutter Series
What's in my Batiks Vault today? Yes, batiks with black. Half-hearts combine to make mirror image blocks. The first of my Cookie Cutter series. Loved making this quilt. Taught it as a workshop more times than I can remember.

Cookie Cutter Leaves. Alas, this quilt was stolen in 2005
I have several other shapes, all done with batiks. Why? Because it's raw edge applique and we don't use fusible webbing. The batiks have a wonderful high threadcount, so they don't ravel like regular quilter's cotton can.

Who's on tap for our hop today?

  8. Those are just plain fun! I understand how a person would want to steal that quilt, but not how they actually could do it. That's just wrong.
