Hoffman Bali Pop Quilt / It's Finished

Finally after must frustration with the borders this quilt is done. Done is a great word isn't it.
The blue hawaiian Bali pop set of 2½" strips used for this model is for all of you that love blue, green and purple batiks. We tried the strip tube method on this model and found it very efficient , but remember there are lots of bias edges that can really stretch using this technique. The words caution and careful come to mind. When pressing the blocks I would not use steam as it is really to easy to stretch and distort them.
There will be new Bali Pop sets available in August or September and we ordered all 6 of the new color ways at market. I loved the set called strawberries and watermelons. Just picture the fruit in your mind , lots of pinks ,reds and greens. It's gorgeous. Thanks for stopping by.


  1. cute!!! What pattern is that? It looks like its from the book Scrap Basket Surprises

  2. Its from the book strip tube quilts by cozy quilt designs ,I believe. They have a series of strip tube quilt books.
