I used batiks, but you certainly don't have to. In fact, I really need to make another with regular quilting cottons.
This is a quick easy pattern to whip up. There are 8 pages of instructions which include pictures of the steps.
This is the Island Batik one I did a couple weeks ago. They are just so fun to make and quilt!
Linking with several of the great linky parties listed on my left side bar. Please visit some of them for wonderful inspiration!
