Boxed in Batiks



Well, I was right - that block which I originally saw over on soscrappy, does look good in batiks and blacks... I started a few the other evening, and finished 6 today - there are also 6 more in progress, up to about the first leg of the outer batik round. I reckon 12 of these (12" blocks finished) will make a nice little top...

It's really such a "Kate" block, I hope this little top will be a keeper.

Kate, I love these blocks! Too pretty! Looks like a stained glass window.

I also like the new blog title and the banner.

what a good project for using the the bin of batik scraps I can't seem to part with!

Gorgeous colors. And I have to agree it has a stained glass look to it.

I like those blocks a lot! That might be a good use for my hand dyed scraps too.

The batik fabric starts to shine, because you added the dark stripes, that looks very nice.

Awesome blocks. I love black borders, I find it brings out the other colors so much brighter.
