A Unexpected Treat

I had a nice visit from my friend Carole C. yesterday.   She travels and I travel and we haven't cross paths for a while.    We had a nice visit and talked about how quilting has changed/progressed over the years.    And she left me with an unexpected gift.   It's a Tonga Treat.    It's around 40 pieces of 10" x 10"  gorgeous coordinated batiks.    I'm going to look for a layer-cake pattern that will use every bit of these delicious fabrics.    Do you have any suggestions?

And don't you think that unexpected gifts are the best kind!!!

Many thanks Carole C.

I used a pattern from Cotton Club for 10 inch squares called "All Aflutter". I did not use batiks but a fabric line called Haooy Go Lucky..just like the picture on the patter.
