My $5 batik charm pack was the basis for this easy, beginner friendly quilt design. I wanted to make the border interesting and unique. What do you think?
In my March 29, 2018 post, I asked you, our readers, which color(s) would work best with my batik charm squares. The vote tallies were equally split between the lime green and the navy…so why not use both?
The green is Moda Grunge Basics Key Lime and the blue is Wilmington Essentials Crackle Navy. This strong, dramatic color combination is a show stopper when combined with the batiks. I’m already thinking picnics, porch swings, sunset watching on the beach, naps on the couch…the possibilities are endless!

If you are a beginning quilter, the 8 flying geese units in the border provide great practice to learn a new technique! Transport yourself to the tropics with a “Tropical Flight” Quilt, we just know you’ll be glad you jumped on board!

I love Moda Grunge! Great little quilt!
Thanks, T. I know I’m partial, but I think it’s a great quilt too!
So glad you got my comment, I thought your blog did not like me – ha! 🙂
Your quilt turned out beautifully! The green and blue are perfect — thanks for sharing the pattern! I really like the flying geese border idea and plan to try it! 🙂
Post pictures when you do try it! We’d love to see it!
A good friend just asked me last night for some charm pack-friendly quilt patterns to make. I’m going to forward this link right on over to her! This is a great idea – adding the flying geese to the border. I love it!
Happy Tuesday! ~smile~ Roseanne
