Here's what I ended up making out of those gorgeous batiks and Hawaiian prints from an earlier post. This is an easy beach house row quilt. There are two different, pieced, houses using Hawaiian floral prints for house bodies and batiks for the roofs. Rows in-between the houses are a variety of blue batiks sewn into strips. I added some small appliquéd fish to two of the rows for fun. The shapes are simple and easy to appliqué. Eventually, a free downloadable pattern for this will be posted in case you want to try it. My Hawaiian version finished out at approx 72" x 84" or twin size. The house blocks are 12" square finished. Any fun, beachy, fabrics and batiks would work for this.
Scraps from the roof fabrics were used to make the fish. An overall Plumeria pattern was quilted on the house and background rows. Watery swirls over the water and fish rows.
