Batik Quilt

Started a quilt destined for my little sister today.  I'm using the Paradise Batik Wave Quilt from Moda Bake Shop.  As my sister has/will have a purple bedroom I'm using a Bali Pop (2 1/2 inch strips) in Plum Pudding.

After spending the rest of the day turning 6 yards of black fabric into 2.5 inch and 4.5 inch strips I'm kinda wishing I'd bought some pre-cut black strips too!

I'm looking forward to how this quilt turns out.  It's going to be a 96x96 inch monster!  I figured out this afternoon that 6 yards of black fabric wasn't going to be quite enough! 

Strip piecing planned for tomorrow.  I'd love to have this quilt finished by March when I'll next see my sister - fingers crossed.
