May is Modern Batik challenge month at Island Batik's so, May is my favourite batik month. I really enjoy making modern quilts because most of the usual design rules can be ignored. I find that modern quilts can be very freeing and allow for more creativity.
You can't see it in the photo but the circle has a hand quilted number one on it. This is part of the reason that I named the quilt "There is Always One". The other reason is that the dark green fabric decided to take its own path and be a circle instead of a square.
I really had fun making this quilt and, of course, working with my Island Batik fabrics.
I almost forgot to mention that I quilted the top using Aurifil thread in a mellow gold.
