Anne B's Batiks 1

In 2010 my quilting buddy Anne downsized moved to Arizona, and I inherited a third of her Batik stash.  Overwhelmed, and always the organizer, I cut 1 inch squares from each piece of fabric, pinned them together by color in hopes to use them as samples when I need a match. 
Two years I was still looking at the chain of pinned wads of color hanging in the sewing room.  On a whim I stitched several together to form small squares.  Still overwhelmed, and not really a batik fan, I took  all the batiks that I liked the least and formed 12 inch blocks around the blocks, and voila a not so unappealing quilt was born.
