This fun scrappy batik quilt pattern started out as a triangle-square exchange with a dozen friends. A dark blue batik for the sashing, borders and binding tie it together. Try this one to use up all those batik scraps you can’t bear to toss out! If you love scrap quilts or just want to work on a quilting project that’s a little bit more challenging, then this quilt is for you!
