QUILTED IN HONOR BY ISLAND BATIK - free pattern

If you read the post below, you will know that these gorgeous fabrics were delivered to me on Friday!!!

I say, OH MY STINKING GOSH!!!!


I just couldn't help myself, I had to use up these awesome fabrics....

 I got out my Latte Foam fabrics as well and added to the Quilted in Honor.  I didn't have enough Island Batik fabric for the border so I used another type of batik.

Can I say that I soooooooooooooooo love these fabrics!!!!

I wish you could see it up close and personal....truly do.  Now the whites are mixed colors but look solid.

There is only one square involved:

One sqaure 7 1/2" or you can make it larger if you want, I wish I had made mine larger like 9 1/2" square
One strip 2 1/2" by 7 1/2", sew to the square

One strip 2 1/2" by  9 1/2" sew across the top which makes a 9 1/2" square.

There are 35 squares, five across and seven down.  You just flip flop the squares.  I only had seven half yards but eight would be great giving you a larger quilt.

looking good, I got this bundle too to share now, just got them today though and I want to wash them first, and there's one blue that doesn't seem to match, not sure if I'll include it or not, we'll see what I come up with.
