    Activity on multiple snowy days here.
    Had some fabric in my stash since 2006 that I've been racking my brain on how to use it ever since. Finally, a plan started coming together this past November when I bought a batik fat quarter bundle.
    This is a generous twin size.

    fabric to start the project

    Color is off somewhat - can't take a good picture today

    Quite stunning. I like the way you put the sashing in to highlight the print. Makes the batiks pop.

    I love the way you used a "border" fabric for sashing, it really makes the stars show. Great ideas!

    Wow that came out beautiful. That sashing with the scrolls is PERFECT for the other bold colors. Its like they were made together almost. Thank you for sharing!
