    My version of a crazy patch

    Was given a sack of batik strips, all uneven widths, and made these two charity quilts. Still need a good pressing and to be quilted, but you get the idea. Great way to use up all those odd ball pieces.

    both are terrific. i like that in the second one, the light color is in the same position in each block... it adds an extra pattern to the block

    Great use of scraps. I'm beginning to think there is no such thing as a scrap. Each piece is just a "quilt-in-waiting." All three of your creations are wonderful. Thanks for inspiring and sharing!

    Oh how I wish I had your fairy godmother!!!
    Batik's on their own are scrumptious, but to be given a bagful??
    Brilliant choice of block too.
    Love them both! I wanna be in that charity.....................
