Size of Block: 8½ (5 x 5 layout)
Size of Quilt: 43 x 43 Without Borders - 60 x 60 With Borders



We decided to use batiks for this project to change things up a little. Batiks are a little different than using regular cottons. Batik fabrics are dyed on high thread count fabric and an over-dye process is used to get the depth in the color and patterns. It is highly recommended that you wash all batiks befor using.

In this quilt we have used an interesting block that was fun to make. At times there can be a challenge, looking for a block that will incorporate the fabrics on hand. We had 4 light fat quarters and 8 dark fat quarters. We used dark fabrics for sashings with light cornerstones. I would have preferred to use light sashings and dark cornerstones. There was not enough light fabric to do this, but your choice can be different by ordering 1/2 meter extra of a light to accomplish this.
