    I will make 2 sets. I will be using the Around the Block with Judy Hopkins book to make: Grecian Square and Railroad Crossing. I am not sure about the color choices yet. I will have them made ASAP and will PM when done. Thanks for running the swap. I am excited about getting the blocks and Batiks are my favorite type of fabrics.

    Well I signed up for two sets. I have been waiting for a batik block swap. What a tight time line though. But I got to work it in. (-: Love those batik blocks. Now to find the two fun patterns I want to make.

    I already cut all the blocks for one set and am sewing away. I am doing a buck eye block but setting it with the lighter squares to the center. Atleast I think I will do it that way. I think it looks nicer.

    Oh my Annaquilts, you are busy already. You are so on a roll. I will be watching, have to finish my 10 UFOs for April first and my other swaps I have committed to then will look again. Will keep watching though. This could with my other blocks I have, make a nice bed quilt. Seriously looking.

    I bought 4 beautiful batik fabrics today. Any requirements or recommendations with the washing? I washed them with one of my son's white t-shirts and the white t-shirt is still very white. Good enough? Any other washing recommendations before I start cutting?

    Good question hopetoquilt... I would say that if you washed them with a white t-shirt and the shirt is still white that is good, and you are all set.

    As to others who are in question about the washing - as the swap requires that all fabrics used must be washed. That was a really good idea that hopetoquilt used - is to wash them with an old white t-shirt (wouldn't want you to ruin a good one), and if the shirt is still white you're good to go. Also, a product called Color Catchers that are found in the laundry section, is a good way to tell. Some colors, like the dark Batiks (reds,dark greens, dark blues,etc.) may need to be washed 2-3 times for all the excess color to run clear. Batiks are especially known for having extra dye in them.
