2006 Raffle Quilt: Indigo Journey

A queen size, 78" x 98" hand-quilted, batik quilt.

The inspiration for Indigo Journey came from Judy Turner's Bento Box pattern in the book, Successful Scrap Quilts, from Martingale. The simple but elegant quilt has lush fabrics, some interesting handwork and an interesting back. It was lovingly constructed and hand quilted by members of Rising Star Quilters Guild.
