Batik Fabrics [Hoffman Ceylon Batik Fat Quarter Collection], Cotton backing and batting
What was your inspiration?
I saw a quilt from Janegirl3 on this website , and I really liked the idea of the design, so I asked/told her I was going to "borrow" the design, and she said yes! Her original design was blues and white which make it quite a striking quilt, but I had bought some fat quarter packs and that is what I used for my version. This is the finished product. I am giving this quilt to my mother in law as a Christmas present.
What are you most proud of?
The color combination turned out great. I felt I cheated a little by using a designer collection because I am not that color coordinated, but that's what the collections are there for, right? LOL I did have to work on the design measurements and ratios myself, but I think the end result is better than I expected.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Don't be afraid of color, and as always, have fun doing this. It comes together pretty quickly.
