    another scrappy- completely out of my stash top done

    i've been looking at this quilt pattern for years- finally decided i could probably do it out of my stash- got out my tote of batik scraps- and started sorting- then instead of a cream batik the pattern called for i figured i probably had enough white on white scraps to use for backgrounds-
    once i had the fabrics sorted i started cutting it all out-
    then a day of piecing 4-patches & half=square triangle blocks
    a couple days (building the blocks)
    and on sunday managed to put it all together-
    going together on the diagonal was an (adventure!) i managed to get the top half together to the center- then on the bottom half---kept doing things...upside down & backwards (mirrored) seam ripper had a work out! but once i (finally) got my mind around what i was doing it came together...i am pretty happy with it.

    From the looks of your scraps, I would have a field day in your stash! Lovely Quilt CK!

    I have been looking at that pattern too. Got it on my bucket list but I better get some of those UFO's done first.
    Love the colors you used.

    That is simply gorgeous. I have a ton of batik scraps, this looks like it would be a fun quilt to do. Thanks for showing it to us.

    the pattern was called "prairie skies"
    it was in a magazine i think from 2009----i don't remember which magazine-i'm at work & it's at home---but i will look it up tonight & let you know.
    thanks all for the compliments---it seems (spring-y) to me---i am getting so i like white backgrounds more & more
