Okay - so this quilt has a lot of firsts for me:
- first time using a jelly roll
- first time with a pieced binding
- first time making my own binding
- first time using a pieced back

I am quite happy with how it came out!

The top:

The back:

I didn't have enough of the polka-dot fabric, and had a bunch of the quilt blocks left over as well as several strips of jelly roll, so this is what happened!

Here is a closer pic of the piecing on the back:


Thanks for looking!  C&C welcome! Grin

I really like your choice of batik-ed fabrics. Did you make them too? Your quilt is very vibrant and I did a double take when I first saw the picture because I first thought it was one of those optical illusions! You have way more patience for all that piecing than I.... Awesome~

Thanks!  And no, I didn't make the batik fabrics - I don't have that kind of time or skill!  But I really do love batiks, and I like how they all came together nicely in this quilt!  I just hope all the white fabric doesn't get all dirty too quickly . . .

very nice quilt. I have a number of jelly rolls to use.... they are so pretty, they are hard to cut into! I love your color combos.

I love it! The pattern is perfect with those prints, the sashing keeping it from being too busy. I really like the backing, too!
