pieced borders take a long time.

Meet “Batik Hollow,”  the quilt formerly known as Ugly.

The additional colors helped.  And finishing helps.  After all, finished is nearly as good as perfect.

The pattern is called Blessings from the Hollow from the book Scrap Basket Sensations by Kim Brackett. I added blocks for a finished top about 66″ x 80″.  Enough for a twin bed or a throw or something.  But mostly it is done and I am very happy.

  1. It is very pretty; it reminds me of a Hawian quilt. Wonderful save; and yes done is really good. I really like what you did the border, I am always impressed with your creativity. And with that said I am saving the picture!

  2. It was never ugly, and now it’s gorgeous! I think I have that book. I have one of the Scrap Basket books, anyway. I’ll have to look it up. Congratulations on a quilt well finished!

  3. Very beautiful!
