Botanical Batiks Wall Quilt

Use a palette of jewel-tone batiks to compose a wall quilt that has Hawaiian flair. Pair lights and darks in similar colorways for the Flying Geese units and hourglass blocks to give the borders added dimension and equal play. Fabrics are from the Bali Handpaints collection from Hoffman California Fabrics.
