Batiks!!!  289 of them — all different!!  And what a unique beauty for a king size bed.  Susquehanna Compass Galaxy is a design so beautiful and creative that it has become a true winner.  The shading of the 100% cotton batiks with 289 different prints, create corners each in its own hue.  Reds, blues greens and tans are the four corner colors of the quilt.  The quilt may be reversed in any direction for a new look because each corner features a different color hue and the quilt is a generous sized king quilt using the 114/114 size.  Its amazing versatile use has prints that work together to make a fantastic appearing quilt.  The diagonal chains bring a beauty to this quilt that accents the gorgeous mariner’s compass blocks sprinkled into the pattern – both large stars and small stars.  This is NOT your ordinary quilt and it remains an exceptionally beautiful and complicated layout for the piecer due to the color blending.  The backing is also 100% cotton.  All fabrics are 100% batik cottons and the hand quilting stitches measure 8 stitches per inch.  In is a one of a kind.  This quilt has over 565 yards of hand quilted thread used in the hand quilting step, and 289 different fabrics laid out in shades to blend from color to color and shade to shade makes this a Galaxy of colors!
