What's Up Next...

Well, since I don't have a design wall to show my current project, I guess the carpet will have to suffice. LOL! This is going to be my Trip to Bali quilt. Lots of purples, pinks, golds, blues and lime greens in these fabrics. The sketch shows how it will look once done, although when I colored it in EQ6, I just used a couple different colors to get a general idea. I didn't want to spend all my time tediously coloring each one differently. Not counting the black borders, I will be able to complete this whole top using only 2-1/2" strips and 5" charms. Finished size will be 93" x 110" -- a really good sized bed quilt. So far I have the 80 (yikes!) blocks-in-blocks completed for the center. Next up are sewing the 2-1/2" strips together and cutting them into 2-1/2" squares for the center inner border. Easy but time-consuming. I'll get there eventually and I love working on it because the batiks are all so colorful and different. It's like eye candy. :o)

Bali Hai,
Suzy

I recently did my first batik quilt and I agree, the fabric is yummy to just look at. And great to wrap up in. I love your design and colors.
