Batik Quilt Done at Last

I have at last got my Twin Size Batik quilt done (ok, it was done 2 weeks ago), but I made this top almost a year ago.  Because of the size it sat for a long time without a back and then when that was done.  It again sat for a long time as Tanya worked up her desire to baste it.  Above it is pictured on my sons Bunk Bed.

Trying out the new quilt rack that was found at thrift store.  This quilt is made with dark and light grey batik material and then 10 inch blocks at a diagonal of random batik fabrics out of 2 1/2 inch squares.

A close up of  one of the square blocks.  Each of blocks is quilted in the square design.  It took a long time to quilt them as I quilted down each side, spiraling in and I underestimated the effort of turning the quilt in circles.

It cover the top of a queen size bed. 


The back is a combination of the light and dark batiks.
