Very Pretty!  I actually this same quilt as a WIP right now.  Did you use a pattern?  I saw it on the front of a book somewhere (actually an ad for the book) and decided to figure it out for myself.  Plus, I'm making it King size and a lot of the patterns I see are for much smaller quilts.  I love your color choices, mine is going to be juicier, brighter colors, but I like yours a lot too!  Nice to see it all finished, now I am re-inspired to pull mine off the back burner!

Thanks!  Yes, I used a pattern.  I borrowed a quilting book from teh library that had a lot of jelly roll quilts in it, and this was the one I decided on.  I might have to borrow it again to pick another!  I'm looking forward to seeing your finished quilt!

And thank you everyone for the very nice comments!! Grin

Your quilt is gorgeous!  Today I saw my first jelly roll quilt book, and none of the quilts looked as good as yours does.  Wow!  Great job!

i love using up scraps to stretch out my backing.  I almost always have some sort of stripe going through it!  Great job!

I love that the block placement looks squiggly if seen from a distance.  And I'm not usually a fan of batiks but you managed to pick all the cool ones and make an awesome quilt!

Looking for teal/turquoise/aqua, grey and white (or a combo) fabric for a quilt.
