Falling in love with Kayana Autumn Collection from Banyan Batiks


The secret to this easy project is the beautiful masterpiece #80296-25 from the Kayana Autumn collection as its color changes from one selvage to the other. It’s the perfect key element for the pattern I have in mind.


The main piece of the collection features the color range of the complete collection in a masterful way.



This makes a 24″ x 36″ quilted throw.
