To make this quilt, we used the one-color design Eos by Evelyn De Morgan, which we colored in with fabric markers. The pieced borders match the friendly pastel colors of the design.
The finished size of the quilt is about 15" x 18.
You will need a fat quarter of light-colored batik, about 1/4 yard of batik in green hues, a piece of batting, backing and textile markers.
Out of light-colored batik, cut
Use green and cream squares to make half-triangle blocks. For this, place them in pairs face to face. You will get 20 pairs. Align all sides. With a pencil draw a diagonal.
Sew 1/4" on both sides of the diagonal.
Cut through the diagonal. Open the new squares - half cream-half green. Press the seams to the green triangles. You'll get 40 squares measuring 2" x 2".
Align 4 units as shown and sew them into a square. Make 10 squares.
Sew the 10 squares into two strips, 5 squares in each strip.
Sew the strips to the left and right sides of the central panel.
Sew the green 2" x 15" strips to the upper and lower sides of the quilt.
Stabilize the central panel with polyester craft felt (you can also use your favorite cut-away stabilizer) and make the embroidery of Eos by Evelyn De Morgan.
Cut away the excess felt or stabilizer
Now place the backing on a flat surface (table) face down. Cover with batting. Spread your panels over it.
Pin all three layers together with 1" pins. Quilt in a free-motion style.
Using textile markers or pencils, color the embroidery to your taste.
