I Won and a Quilt I've Never Blogged About

Did you know that Connecting Threads has a blog. I didn't, but I do now. It's an interesting blog. Let's you know more about their products and designers. It also highlights current designers who have written books and patterns. They also have  giveaways and I won one. This is a real rarity for me and I must tell you it is really fun! Here is what I received in the mail today. Two stacks(ten inch squares) of their beautiful batiks. The top is the sunset collection and the bottom is waterways.
 If you would like to check out their blog, click here.
I'm not sure what I going to do with these fabrics yet. I have not worked with many batiks.  
Here is a project using batiks I pieced about 3 years ago. The fabrics are Kaufman and the pattern is Curvalishish by Sew Be It. It was fun to make. You may recognise it because Hancock's of Paducah used it promote the pattern and the fabrics. It was really fun to make and one I may have to revisit.
