    The black really makes the fabrics pop. I love it.

    I recognize some of those batiks in my stash I too like the way you did the border so that the batiks are like a medallion in the center.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I so like this pattern. Simple but the results make it look so much harder. Done with batiks and black really looks sharp.

    Great idea to use the left overs. ITs very pretty.

    Sometimes the simpliest of patterns is what is needed to let the beauty of the fabric take center stage! Your quilt top certainly is a beauty.

    This is a cool way to put 'scraps' to very good use. Can't hardly call them scraps!
