Wild Zen

Another quilt top:

It measures 46" x 61". I would have liked it to be a couple rows bigger each way but......I worked with what batiks I had on hand, and this is what I could get out of them. The plain squares finish 6 1/2" by 10" - those take up lots of fabric.
I need to find a batik for the backing - hopefully I'll get another quilt top or 2 done, and I can go to the quilt shop or JoAnn's. I do have a bunch of little pieces of these batiks left - I'm thinking I need to do a pieced back to use them up (maybe with a solid blue batik).
Off to the next quilt top in progress that is going to get finished.....

I like when a back has pieces from the front in it. you should so that.

WOW! Look at you go! I love this quilt top, Kris. And I totally like the idea and look of pieces included in the backing.

Happy shopping and happy quilting. You will quilt your way through Jan & Feb! Ana :)
