Bazaarly Big and Beautiful

Bazaarly Big and Beautiful #1, 52×70 inch lap quilt by O.V. Brantley, 2017. For sale at

In preparation for my 9-day Craftours of Bali, I saw many pictures of colorful batik markets. The batik markets of Bali inspired this series of quilts. I wanted to randomly mix different prints to get a bazaar effect. Since I was experimenting and many of the fabrics had a large scale, I decided to make the blocks big. That’s how this series of quilts got its name.

Bazaarly Big and Beautiful #1  and Bazaarly Big and Beautiful #2 are lap quilts that measure approximately 52×70 inches. Each is comprised of 12 random 18 inch blocks in a mix of African and domestic prints. They are pieced on my machine and quilted on a long arm.

Elephant herd on the back of Bazaarly Big and Beautiful #1 and #2

There is a herd of elephants on the back. (Remember we are going Big). If you prefer to hang the quilt rather than cuddle under it, there is a hanging sleeve on the back for easy display. A label documents the quilt.

This quilt is one-of-a-kind. #bali #ovsneversaynevernovember
