Batik Flowers

This is one of my favorite quilts.

The batik flowers came in a packet I bought a number of years ago in Anacortes, Washington. I purchased them just because I liked them, but I didn't have any particular idea of how I would incorporate them into a quilt.

Later on, I came across the fabric that I used in the blocks and the narrow sashing. The way I used it in the blocks, it appears to be two different colorways of the same print. In reality, the fabric gradates from light to dark. If you look carefully at the vertical sashing, you can see how it is lighter at the top and darker at the bottom.
