    Blue Batik Strip Quilt for Grandson

    This is for my 13 year old grandson in Florida - his favorite color is blue so I think he will like it! It is quilted by my friend Amy in a curl type panto so it looks like rolling waves - the tropical fish on the back just seemed right for it too.

    He's going to LOVE it! The first narrow border really sets it off. Great job!

    Love the quilt and the backing you've used. Is it a jelly roll race quilt with 2-1/2 inch squares between the strips? I like that idea. Makes it more interesting. Been planning one of those myself and will have to remember this.

    Very very nice. I especially like the light blocks breaking up the strips.

    That's really nice. Like the use of the squares between the strips. Gives it movement and interest. All the fabrics are great and so is the back.

    This is a gorgeous quilt. Simple, but elegant. I think the back looks like it was made especially for this quilt. Thanks for sharing.
