    Lovely quilt. I think you did a great job chopping it up and turning it into something different.

    I've never tried basting on the wall. . . maybe I'll give it a shot. We live in a small condo and the carpet is really frustrating to baste on. I need to find a better option and spray basting is out due to family members with asthma. I'd probably get more quilts done if basting wasn't so annoying. I have three tops waiting for completion now.

    This is from a Hoffman Bali Pops pack - I made a racer quilt first but thought it needed something else. So I chopped it apart on the bias and put together some messy squares. Then I figured some black sashing and borders would do the trick but I wanted some batiks in the border too...but I was out! I went to Joann's and picked out a few to try to match the Bali Pops. The cornerstones and squares in the border are all other misc. batiks - I think I did a pretty good job matching the Bali's!

    The quilt is about 72"x72" - I'm calling it a "large throw", lol.
