A Batik Beauty

Well, my mom has done it again! She created a fabulous batik top with hand-appliqued blocks set in the "Circle of Nine" pattern. This design gave me the opportunity to try some new quilting designs (at least new for me).

I had been looking at curved crosshatching, reading how-to guides, and watching videos. But like so many other things we learn, I just had to dive in and quilt it only to find out that it's not as hard as it looks.

I also had been wanting to do some overlapping arches with rulers. I was able to echo the shape of the petals in the flowers with the arches in the borders of this quilt.
