This small quilt started out as a pattern called “Sea Glass”. It was supposed to use green, blue and tan batiks that gave the impression of beach glass, soft and worn, wind swept sand. Well, it got scrappy, out of control scrappy in a good way. The navy and purples snuck in and the turquoise and rusts too. I used up a bunch of batik scraps, now I can close the plastic containers that hold my collection a little easier. I’m calling it “43” because it is made from 3 and 4 patch blocks. I am thinking of quilting it with an orange peel pattern. First it has a date with the ironing board.
I’m linking up with Freshly Pieced today, Another Scrappy Alert Lee Is working on Scrappy quilts too.
Updated Picture, now with borders!

Thanks! Its about 50″x60″, I may add some borders though…
The fabric combo is beautiful and definitely reminds me of sea glass.
Soo pretty! Love these colors.
