I have slowly been making a modern style Batik quilt since some time earlier this year…even perhaps last year. It's nearing completion now! Even my 16 year old daughter likes it, and it does look good in her room. The informal prints and casual styling of the quilt seem to suit teenagers. It's a pity it's for my sister's 50th birthday! (I'm hoping it will suit her too.)I used a Bali Batik Bali Pop, "Rainforest" for the quilt + some lovely white and grey fabrics for the sashing and corner squares. You could use any type of pre-cut batik strips, like the Moda ones below, or even your own stash fabrics. i added quite a few toning Batiks from my stash to make my quilt larger.

The quilt is so simple to make. I sewed the jelly roll strips into sets of three, then cross-cut them to make 6 1/2 inch squares, then I laid them out alternating vertical and horizontal directions. I spread the browns through the quilt. I actually would have preferred less brown and little more aqua, but c'est la vie.

I put up the finished quilt one day very soon.
