Batik 9-Patch

Simply and charming, this batik 9-patch gets the job done.  It's also a great scrap buster.  Pieced by Marge M., she used 2 different background fabrics - though you can't tell.
A leaf design was chosen to be quilted in the alternate plain blocks and sides.  

The 9-patch blocks are quilted with connecting arcs with a lighter color thread.  This allows the background fabric to be quilted down, it doesn't compete with the design quilted next to it and it allows the batik fabrics to POP forward. 
Because it's set on point, it really makes it more interesting to look at.  Super easy and great results!
