Bali Pops Batik lap quilt
I got enough in the pack (40 strips) to make the front of the quilt and I scrapped the back of it together with other batik odds and ends I had. I added a cotton batting to the inside. It's a lightweight quilt. I found the pattern on-line as part of a blog from another quilter. She had a great tutorial! If you'd like to see how it's done, click on this link. http://2ndavenuestudio.blogspot.com/2008/05/bali-pop-tutorial.html.
After piecing it, I sent it to a woman in Michigan who does machine quilting. I told her to quilt it in her choice of pattern and thread color. I think she did a great job. If you're interested in her, contact me for her info.
Now I have to finish another queen sized quilt that I started last year. I have all 12 blocks done, but I haven't decided how to finish it off.
