Oh, I love this quilt! It reminds me of stained glass with all it's beautiful batiks. I also added a hand dyed navy that I had on hand too. There are 2 blocks 5x4 and 6x3 which when you add a 1 inch black black to 2 sides makes them the same size.
I used an invisible smoke thread to quilt this to keep the quilting from distracting from the fabrics. You can read more about that here. I gave some tips on using monopoly thread. It's not so bad as I thought!
For the back, I used the remaining pieces of fabrics from the front. It's like a puzzle trying to make it big enough to cover the quilt, but there is always a solution. It looks so much more stunning in person, but then it always does!
