Working with fabric strata

Last weekend I went to a 2 day class to construct a quilt using a jelly roll of Batik fabrics. The strips were sewn into a piece of fabric and then cut into shapes with templates and sewn back together.
It was an enjoyable class and everyone's quilt ended up looking quite different.   

My photo is 90 degrees to the left. For some reason when I up loaded it, it turned around and I couldn't change it.

Friday Night Sew in

I enjoyed my evening with FNSI (Friday night sew in) with Heidi and last night I made a sewing companion using this pattern I  found on the Internet.
This is my one:

I think they must have made their needle case a little smaller as it goes down lower into the companion in the picture.
I used a snap instead of the button and tassel (as I didn't have one) . 
This is the website I got it from.

I also did some more basting of Hexigons and started making a flower. Not enough to show it yet.
I'm looking forward to seeing what others did.
