Bali Batiks

The Bali inspired quilt is complete.  Started with a great discussion while we were in NYC.  I love when friends have great ideas and I can help them come together.

Originally I was hesitant to work with batiks.  They seem a bit more traditional for me but I knew I could do something to bring them more into my style.  Gray, of course!  You will be seeing lots of gray in the coming months.

I wanted simple but showcasing each fabric in the quilt.  Frame each block in a solid and then find a coordinating print to bring it all together.  Luckily, my LQS has a good variety of batiks and made the shopping part easy.

Here is a sample of my vision for this quilt.

Just needed to make 15 more blocks to complete the quilt top.

Time to pick a backing fabric.  Here were the two possibilities.

For the quilting I decided yellow would be a great color on the front.  My sewing buddies were pleasantly surprised with the addition.  Very happy with how it turned out.
