Karen's Blues

Karen pieced this from beautiful batiks.  I love the pattern and all the blues.  It's just fabulous with 4 borders.  It's 68 x 68.  Well done Karen :)

I followed the design of the fabrics by quilting flowers and ferns.  The outer border has hooks facing opposite directions, the solid blue middle border has ferns, and the larger third border has a flower and hooks between them:

The pieced border has hooks and a wiggly line
In the 4 blocks that make the cross pattern I quilted 2 large ferns in each triangle, and a wiggly line in the stripes
The 5 multi-colored pieced blocks were all done differently depending on the pattern:

The backing is mostly another blue batik, but it is also pieced:
