    I would go ahead and make it bigger. You should be able to figure the pattern if going for a king. Finishing it with the piano keys will look great. Love the batiks!

    I agree with the black inner border, but I would pick a more solid looking batik for the outer border, one that includes some of the same colors!

    This is really nice! I don't see why you could not add more blocks either horizontally or vertically. Or, if you really don't like it, make a new one using all the 12 batiks that you have. Either way, you end up with at least one (and possibly two) very pretty designs.

    Totally up to you ... would you like to make a bed quilt AND a lap top? Would you get tired of making the same pattern again or did you enjoy it so much that you'd love to make more? Those are the things that would go thru my head to decide.

    It really is lovely, the fabric really give this a stained glass effect.

    I would enlarge it if that's what you want. It is BEAUTIFUL. The pattern repeats so it doesn't look that difficult to enlarge - and as others have recommended - use borders IF it doesn't detract from the quilt because it is beautiful as it is.

    Really really pretty, but if it'll make you feel better I'll be glad to remove it from your sight! >grin<
    What if you separate the 12 blocks you've got there. Then gather more batik fabrics and create more blocks using some of the same fabric colors used in your original blocks. Then shuffle and sew them up again. Might that work?
    Or make a lap quilt?
    Can you tell us what the name of the pattern is please?

    Forget the pattern, add onto this doing what you did before...gorgeous!
    A friend of mine did the same thing...cut wrong, did the best she could and won a ribbon at the quilt show w/ the "accidental" quilt! You've got a winner hee!

    Your quilt is beautiful. I believe that this one is my favorite of all of this type that I have seen. It really looks like stained glass. (Don't you just love those Batiks?) Absolutely gorgeous. I love it whatever you do. I think I would just make this one larger. It really is stunning. Yolanda Wood River

    I agree with Tartan. If this is now a lap size & you need it to be a king size, I'd just keep going & add more blocks, add a black border then a piano key border. I think it would be stunning like that. What you have right now looks really good!

    I really love your quilt. I think 12 fabrics would have made it look very busy, and I like the simplicity of the five colors. Great choices of colors. They really pop! What is the name of the pattern?
