Hired to Make a Quilted Wallhanging

So what do you do when a customer wants you to make a wallhanging  (or three) out of the wildest, crazy Hawaiian prints you have no idea what to do with?

The first thing I had to do was come up with some kind of design that would work with all the different colors and patterns.  I laid out the blocks in a basic square, trying to come up with some kind of pattern.

The colors were a little to close together so I thought of adding some borders to make it look like a window pane.  A Batik border adds just the right touch and pulls it all together.  The finished result is stunning!

I had enough squares left over to make two coordinating side wallhangings.

Now to deliver to the customer and hope she likes them!
