Tropical Patches Wall Quilt

A bevy of batiks results in a tropical-look wall hanging. Punches of orange and pops of teal interspersed throughout the patchwork draw the eye around the quilt and add sparkle. Fabrics are from the Sumatra collection of batiks from Blank Quilting.

Assemble and Add Border


Refer to Quilt Assembly Diagram, when sewing together border units. (Units are D units unless otherwise labeled in diagram.) When joining units, use a scant 1/4" seam.

1. Sew together two A units and four D units to make a side border strip. Press seams in one direction. The strip should be 5-1/2x30-1/2" including seam allowances. Repeat to make a second side border strip.

2. Join one B unit, one E unit, five D units, and one C unit to make top border strip. Press seams in one direction. The strip should be 5-1/2x40-1/2" including seam allowances. Repeat to make bottom border strip.

3. Join side border strips to long edges of quilt center. Add top and bottom border strips to remaining edges to complete quilt top. Press all seams toward border.
