Island Batik Ambassador's Modern Batik Challenge - Part 1

It's time for a modern quilt as part of the Island Batik Ambassador's Modern Batik Challenge!

I love the look of modern quilting.  It's simplistic, but fun.  I decided I wanted to play with some Island Batik scraps I had for this challenge.  I pulled out all my green and purples.  I then cut a LOT of little squares...

Then I assembled them into blocks and arranged them as shown below.  It almost makes a perfect x, but not quite, which is why I like it!

I decided to do swirls on a line for the quilting  I decided to do them all the way across the entire quilt.

I'm very happy with the final results.

I hope you get to quilt today!


  1. I like the quilting design very much. Do you draw a grid to follow as you do the quilting?

  2. Ooh, it was already an interesting piecing design, but then your quilting swirls really kicked it up a notch. Lovely piece, and great way to use up those precious batik scraps!
