Batik Rectangles

I found some more blue to go with my batik blocks.

Just not enough. This will make a quilt that is 48 by 72 inches. Hmmmm…. I’d like it to be a bit wider. But I also like having all the solid bits the same. I decided to sew this together as is and then figure it out. Here are my rows all prepped.

After I sewed the rows, I put them up on the design wall sideways, just to see how I liked it.


I will have 80 rectangle blocks left over so I will be able to make at least one more quilt with these. This is for Hands2Help hosted by Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

Have a great day!

    I’ve always sewn my leaders/enders to death, maybe I should start saving them. It is definitely a way to be more productive. That is a great blue! How about using the leftover rectangles as border to make the quilt wider? Just an idea.
