lap quilt. continued


life's been a bit maddening lately, but today i decided to step away from those things i can't control right now anyway and finish up the blocks and rows for my island batik lap quilt top. 5 rows, 20 blocks. the green rocks my world. now, i just have to decide on a 4 inch border, whether i'll do strips or squares and from what fabrics, these or two or three others i have to choose from. fun, fun, fun! doesn't freak me out anymore.

Sometimes when things are crazy the best thing to do is create! This is beautiful! I love the watercolor feel to the palette you chose and the green is divine! It really makes the top sparkle. Have fun with the border!

Great colors - great pattern. I don't usually go for batiks and loud colors but this could grow on me. Love it.
