This little piece doesn't have a name

This is one of the wallhangings I mentioned in the preceding post. Fused and buttonhole appliqued. It's one of those pieces that I am not 100% with for some reason. I have made so many quilts and wallhangings (over a 30+ year period) and am more enthused about some of them than others. Interests change, also. Things are so very different now than when I started quilting. The tools, patterns, methods - it's incredible! Some day I will take a picture of a quilted long skirt I made in the 70's - I thought it was the coolest thing. Huge calico flowers satinstitched in black. I saw it in a book and made one myself. It really is a hoot but with a black turtleneck, I was all dolled up. And when I look at it now I yearn for that little waist!! Oh, well, I will be 80 in three weeks and I am blessed with good health and most of my brain cells so life is good and I'll never complain.

Hi Carol,
Your winding ways or wheel of mystery quilt of batiks is really gorgeous- I love all the wonderful colors- it looks so rich.
I am planning to make this pattern in the fall. Your color choice is an inspiration. Thanks for sharing.
