Using my Rust Fabric

"Reflections #2" is the second quilt in my latest series. I used my rust fabric and a commercial batik. I just cut the pieces randomly and stitched them together - this is a very free way of working but I think it gives a good result. It was very difficult to piece - probably because the rust fabric was really rusted. I haven't decided on a border fabric yet, I am still auditioning them.

I think I may hand quilt this one due to the difficulty I had with the machine. I tried every type of needle in the machine and it was still tough going.
