I had fun digging into my batik stash for this quilt and also use a neutral batik for the background color. Many times I use a premium muslin for my background fabric. If you really want to get scrappy, you could use a variety of neutral prints like I did in the baby River Scraps quilt.

I have 2 four foot tables put together that I use as a cutting table and also a place to pin my quilt tops for quilting. This works a lot better anymore than doing it on the floor. My poor knees can’t take that anymore.

I always have fun putting my blocks up on my design wall and then trying to decide just what I want my quilt to look like.

For the backing, I had a piece of quilt fabric that was white with purple dots that I picked up at Joann Fabrics some time ago. Many times I don’t use batiks for the backing because they are expensive and I prefer to use them just for the fronts of my quilts.
