Shopper's Dream

I bought all of these fabrics on a shop hop with my guild.  I bought 1/2 yard cuts at all different shops, so there is a great variety of fabrics within each color.  They are all batik fabrics, which adds so much life to the quilt.  The pattern is Bonnie Hunter's Carolina Christmas, with some design and color changes.  The main change is using black for the background instead of neutrals.  I love the way this changes the look of the quilt.  It's 92 x 92

The red creates a poinsietta to help create the Christmas theme.  I did some straight line quilting in them:

I put stars in the gold blocks, and love how they look like a star in the night sky on the back:

I did line dancing in all the small triangles, and wiggly lines in the larger triangles:

There are straight lines in the first black border, and the same wiggly lines and line dancing in the outer pieced border:

There are 3 different fabrics on the back
