    It is So beautiful. It will look wonderful with nothing done except binding. The colors are so vivid it really stands out as is.

    Beautiful and would look really nice larger. Keep trying. Piano borders sounds okay.

    I agree. I is totally doable and will look great when finished. If you liked the five fabrics, I don't see anything wrong with making it your own and going with it. Please continue and then finish with the piano key border. It will look fantastic on your king.

    Wow, I like it. What if you framed it in a slightly larger black, then added the piano keys or more squares. Then a black binding. Can you tell I like black? haa
    I love the stained glass look.

    I LOVE your quilt! So bright & cheery. Have seen several like this but don't know the pattern name. What is it, please?? Have a large stash of batiks & could really whittle it down w/this pattern. Thank you.

    I like it just as it is. I would even go as far as not putting a border on it.

    It's gorgeous. The wonderful thing about batiks and hand-died fabrics is that you can get many different looks and patterns from the same fabaric. I love the quilt and since you say you have more fabric, I would simply add more blocks and maybe a narrow border with piano key fabrics and maybe another border. Any way you finish it, it will be beautiful.

    Thank you all very much for all the lovely comments and advice.

    Several have asked about the pattern. It is called "Asain Scrappy Road". It was in the Oct 2011 issue of Quilter's World Magazine.

    I've got to check the amount of fabric I have left and make sure I have as much as I think I do. I've decided to make more blocks and aim for king size. I'll use wider strips for the inside border and the outer border and that will help plus I like the idea of the piano key border and hope to use that too. I'm glad it is a fun quilt to work on.

    I'll post a picture after I get the top done.

    Have a nice day. Shirley

    Beautiful! As is, made larger, with or without borders! I really like just the five batiks you used. Twelve would surely be lovely too, but now you have an original.

    I think it is perfect like it is. Make it king size and do the piano keys border as suggested and then be sure to show it.

    It is beautiful. Add a border of black all around, then more of the smaller rectangles if you need to increase the size. And another border of black.

    It is beautiful. Love all the colors you used. I would make more blocks to add to it & make it to fit your bed. It will be fantastic when it is finished. Good job girl.
