    Cool My Batik Quilt

    It's not finished but I wanted to share. Maybe get an opinion or two.

    I cut out the quilt - thinking if I liked it I would add to it and make it bigger. Well, I cut it out wrong and I'm not sure how hard it will be to follow the pattern now and make it bigger.

    I have plenty of fabric and I am seriously considering completely starting over and just using this as a lap size quilt - probably as a gift.

    Would you start over or try to enlarge this one?

    Really pretty! How much bigger do you need it? I think it would look cool to add the brick shapes, kind of like a large piano key border all around the perimeter. I would use the same size black in between the body of the quilt and the piano keys.

    I think it is beautiful and whatever you do, it is going to be wonderful. I don't see what you did wrong. Can't you just add more rows to it? What do I know?? Show us what you come up with because the fabric is just outstanding, and I love the stained-glass look.

    We have a king size bed. :-( So it would have to be a LOT bigger. LOL.

    I like your idea of the piano keys border. I think I'll do that. Thanks a bunch.

    Maybe I phrased it wrong. I guess I didn't cut wrong - I didn't follow directions well. There was supposed to be 12 different batiks used and I only had about 5 I think. Just totally read that and then ignored it. I'll post another picture when I get it done. Glad you like it.

    I would add more to this one, it is beautiful. I really like the gold color, makes everything pop

    I would add on to that one. It is easy to see where the block is, so try to figure if it will work by adding a row of blocks, one way or both directions? if not maybe you can make it bigger by adding the black all the way around and a border of one of those gorgeous batiks

    Beautiful fabric choices. Adding borders as suggested is a good option to make it bigger. Looking forward to seeing the finished project.
