    Gorgeous, where did you get the pattern? Is the black just strips cut to various lengths?

    Thank you.
    The pattern is called "Asain Scrappy Road". It was in the Oct 2011 issue of Quilter's World Magazine. The black is kona cotton and is cut to various lengths to fit the blocks.

    What is the name of your pattern? I have seen it before and loved it but can't remember the name. Looks as if it could be easily drafted but that is not my area at all!! Thanks

    I would add on to this one. You may lose interest if you decide to make another one just like it...it's happened to me.

    I cut out the quilt - thinking if I liked it I would add to it and make it bigger. Well, I cut it out wrong and I'm not sure how hard it will be to follow the pattern now and make it bigger.

    I have plenty of fabric and I am seriously considering completely starting over and just using this as a lap size quilt - probably as a gift.

    Would you start over or try to enlarge this one?

    It's going to be beautiful....I think your 5 fabrics work perfectly. As much as I am totally into colour saturation/scrappy, I think in this case 5 is better than 12. Please show us when it has "grown" to it's full potential.

    I'd add black borders and make it as large as I wanted. It surely is pretty!

    I absolutely adore your quilt! Yellow is my favourite colour and that particular shade is what I really, really like. I also happen to love batiks as well! Beautiful colour selection. I think that if it is possible to enlarge it, then that would be nice but it is lovely as it is too. It depends on how much time you want to spend on it and what you want to use it for. I am interested in what you decide to do next and I am looking forward to you showing us what you have decided to do. Thank you for sharing. Best wishes.

    I finally got some time to get back to my quilt this morning. I do not have enough of the yellow color to make it king size. I have enough for a few blocks, so I will add on to it ; add a black border and hopefully the piano key border. I've been searching online for the fabric and have not found it and can not remember the manufacturer. My brain is tired of looking.

    I appreciate all the lovely comments and help. I'll post a photo of the top after it is done.

    Happy Friday!

    We went to the flea market Saturday morning which put me in the vicinity of a fabric store so we stopped. I found my yellow fabric!! I was so surprised. I may end up with that king size quilt yet. Happy Monday!

    You could use this as the center, add some more batiks, and keep going. The center would 'glow', depending on what fabric combination you used for the next blocks. You could do a double row of blocks all the way around this panel in a different color combination, and then a different one again for another set of double blocks, etc., until you finish. That way you'd 'read' the quilt from the center out, especially if you used different fabrics in each succeeding double set of blocks. The black sashing really adds to the design. I can't wait to see what direction you go with this one. Beautiful!

    Gorgeous!!


    You can buy the pattern on this website. It is a downloadable pattern.

    With the internet, anything is possible. Just do a search for the pattern. That is how I found a source for it.

    OMG the COLOR that is showing up on this board lately! FAN-freakin-tastic! Another stunning one for the books! Nice use of color, and the pattern shows it off perfectly! I love to see the ones where the fabrics & pattern are in perfect harmony. Btw, what is the name of the pattern?
