    I'm making a quilt for my son out of batik fabrics. He picked out the pattern the last time he was in town. I was showing him pictures of some of the quilts here on the board and this was his second choice. His first choice was all curved pieces and I'm not ready to tackle that any time soon. These squares are not sewn together yet but I laid some out on the bed to see how it would look. I'm only about halfway finished making the blocks - the finished size will be about 72 x 54. Each block finishes at 6-inches.

    I got hold of a salesman's samples of batiks that he was getting rid of so I have the whole rainbow of colors, but chose some of the more muted ones to make it more masculine looking. I threw in the blues for a pop of color.

    Oh, I love it, I love it!
    I really want to make one like that... someone else posted something similar a little while ago, and I fell in love. It's on my to-do list for sure!

    Yeah, I'll say BONUS!! When he called and said he would bring some of his old samples to me I had no idea he meant three large boxes full. Here they are all piled up on the table. I'm so glad his wife is not a quilter :)

    I LOVE it. The blue is wonderful. I just finished a top with lots of chocolate, butterscotch, vanilla etc. I call mine "Candy Shoppe".

    What a great quilt. I can see why he picked that pattern. What a great find for you to get your hands on all those batiks.

    Wow !!! Lucky you to have gotten to use batik samples. There is nothing like a beautiful freebie to inspire the creative juices. I like the name of this quilt too.
