Batik Sunrise
Margaret Drayton
This stunning Quilt comprises ‘x’ number of the same block design, but with each block featuring a different Batik fabric.  The ‘swirling’ effect of the quilt is achieved through different block placements.
The block is sewn using the Foundation Piecing method for the ‘rays’, the ‘L’ shape can be hand or machine pieced, and the centre quarter circle can be hand or machine pieced or appliqued into position.
These blocks are much easier to make than it might appear, and is a good introduction to the ‘Foundation Piecing’ technique for those who have not used it before.   Once you have learnt this method you can make as many blocks as you need to achieve the size Quilt you want. You can be assured of a fun and productive day.
