    The multi-color batik one is named 'Sunset'. That's the one my daughter has claimed.
    i love the pattern and the colors are just beautiful...but...i was looking for the pattern online and didn't find it. is that the name you gave it or the name of the pattern. what date of the magazine is it in...i love it NEED to add it to my to do list.

    Thanks for all the nice comments. I will try to answer all questions here.

    No, I am not going to handquilt. I don't have the patience. I have a longarm machine.

    The one called Sunset is my name for it. Each block is just a four patch with sashing around it. The finished block size is 8".

    The green one is from a pattern named Picket Fence that was in Quiltmaker's All-Time Favorites - Spring '03. I don't have the pattern, just a picture. If you look at the close-up, each block is 3 strips. Each strip is two fabrics sewn diagonally. Then the blocks are set by alternating vertical and horizontal placements. Once I figured it out, the quilt went together pretty quickly.
