I took Rico for his sheep herding lesson this morning and then took the boys for a nice four mile walk and field run before we headed home. After an early dinner I sat down and started chunking away at the scrappy batik 16 patch strip sets. And I got all 36 sets sewn and pressed.
I really like some of the fabric combos in these blocks. This is going to be a fun quilt.
There are a few combos in there that I’m a little iffy about, but I’m not going to toss them out until I see them with the rest of the blocks.
Here’s one of my favorite combos. I can remember when I bought that spotted fabric. I still just love it!
Tomorrow I plan to sew all green batik blocks together. It should go fast because the blocks are big and there are only five rows. But there are a lot of seams to match. Then I plan to work on finishing up the blue 16 patch blocks.
I’m going to force myself to wait on these batik blocks until those two projects are checked off.
