Batik Squares

Tuesday, November 11th, 2008

I have all of my batik squares cut and on the design board. I will add an outer border of black and white which I could not fit on the portable design board. This is my project for evenings and stress times when I need to do  mindless strip piecing.

Now, I need to clean up the ubiquitous mess. I can never make something like this without piles of fabric every where. Here are my piles of batiks. I can’t believe¬† how many I have.

I also managed to get two of the facings done on the sunrise quilt. I was hand-sewing the facings at the Arts Commission meeting. I received lots of oohs and ahs. Felt good.
