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.
Here is the actual back, change of design plans.
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.
