I was sorting throug my stash a few years ago and noticed that I seemed to have an abundance of Yellow/Orange/Red and Blue/Purple.I grabbed my rotery cutter and chopped a mountain of squares, big and small, and randomly pieced them together. Then I handed the pile of blocks to the kids and told them to figure out a lay-out. In a weeks time we had a top...but finding a border for it!! That was a nightmare! It sat in the closet waiting to be finished for months before, on a fluke, I saw the perfect batik in the sale bin of my favorite quilt shop! I wasn't even looking with that top in mind when I found it!
