It is 20 WOF 2.5 inch strips from Island Batik's Northern Woods collection and 1/4 yard of a light brown with some green going through it. Alison used the rest of this fabric for her beautiful Faceted Friendship Star quilt! Thanks for sharing, Alison!
I think this might be my favorite piece - it reminds me of aspen trees in the Colorado woods.
Or this one - golden snowflakes on dark brown. Beautiful!
When you get something unexpected like this in the mail, what do you do? Well, I dove right in and started playing! Inspired by PaulaB's batik strips quilt top, I cut the 20 strips into 10.5 inch pieces, and then sewed them into dark and light pairs.
I also cut a few of these strip pairs in half so that when I laid the blocks out, I got this offset bricks pattern.
I really like the pops of turquoise, blue-green, and orange in among the earthy tones.
As it stands right now, if I sew all the strip pairs together, I think the quilt top would come out at about 33.5 x 50, not really big enough to be useful yet. I've never sewn with batiks much, so don't have scraps to add into the mix either. So, it's back to the mulling stage for this one.
