    This is really pretty!! I'd suggest that you add on to this.

    Add 2 more of the middle strip. Put one on each side of the current top. If you need to add more then work with borders.

    I would go ahead and make it bigger. You should be able to figure the pattern if going for a king. Finishing it with the piano keys will look great. Love the batiks!

    I agree with the black inner border, but I would pick a more solid looking batik for the outer border, one that includes some of the same colors!

    This is really nice! I don't see why you could not add more blocks either horizontally or vertically. Or, if you really don't like it, make a new one using all the 12 batiks that you have. Either way, you end up with at least one (and possibly two) very pretty designs.
