Bali Bali Quilt and Kitties

For this Linus quilt, I went through my bin of batiks. I was lucky to find that there was a large piece — more than a yard — of a multicolored batik suitable for the background. Because there were so many colors in it, it coordinated well with a wide variety of fabric hues.

This quilt is a small version of “Flaying Home from Bali Bali” from Nickel Quilts by Pat Speth and Charlene Thode.

This fabrics in the Eight-Patch columns are the same, the only difference being the directiuon of the color gradation.

Each of the Flying Geese blocks is different, and none use any of the Eight-Patch fabrics.

Because I wanted each Flying Geese block to be different, I used the Stitch-and Flip method rather than the No-Waste method.

Consequently, I had a lot of leftover triangles from the trimming. I sewed them into half-square triangle units and had enough to make five patchwork kitties, three of which are shown here.

They will get donated to Project Linus along with the quilt top.
