Welcome to Twisting With The 60's Batik blog hop. Such fun and so many memories. I have been humming and grooving for days. We have been well led by Madame Samm (Sew We Quilt) and her cheerleader Mary (1 Piece 2-Mary) as they drive their Love Bug filled with Flower Children in search of Island Batik and their lovely fabrics.
Flowers, tie-dyed fabrics and peace symbols define the era without words.
I am now the proud owner of a flower pincushion.
I am sure the 60's would assume a Mug Rug could be something for feet but mine will come in useful when I am stitching. As will the sewing caddy.
One wonderful legacy of the Hippie movement is the Peace symbol. It has stood the test of time.
I just might be considered Cool in my necklace created from Yo-yo's stitched in batik fabric.
When I started this my intention was a cheerful tie-dyed Dresden Plate Flower for a little table centerpiece.
But it grew and became more cheerful.
Maybe a bed skirt ....
It kept growing and might still get another border. It is difficult to choose border fabric because I used bright, not perfectly matching colors together. A Flower Child quilt for sure. Should become a nice lap quilt.
I began another Batik project but time intervened. The fabrics were too beautiful not to show you. This has good vibrations and will not remain on the UFO list too long.
Thank you for visiting the quilting caravan. Sew climb aboard the Love Bug , pour a cuppa tea and join the other Flower Children.
