    Brickwork Of Tahiti

    This is the one that had five plastic markers in the seams. I took out the stitches, and released the plastic, then sewed the seams over. It worked out well, and I am going to be much more careful next time I use them.

    All batiks. 54 x 66. I will have this done by a pro. It's so much quicker.

    Great pattern and colors! I can picture it quilted with a woven design showing off the piecing, but I'm sure it will look gorgeous however you decide to quilt it. Please show it again when it is finished.

    Colorful and such a good name for it. Yes, sending it out helps get it done more quickly! It also keeps me away from the chiropractor!

    A nice easy quilt. I could cut up lots of my scraps and make this. What fun!
    I really like yours. Such beautiful colors !

    Is that the name of the pattern? It's beautiful in batiks. It resembles a quilt I made for our bed, but I didn't use batiks.

    HobbyKat1955, plastic markers are to pin on each block so you know where you want it in the quilt. They say Row 1 Block 4 etc. It's a handy system, but I must remind myself to pin in the center of the block.

    DJ, I just named it that. I saw a picture online and fell in love. I drew it up in my EQ5 and then went to work. This is the second one I've made in this pattern. The first I named "Nothing Contained".
