I wanted to finish my table runners for a side tropical swap a few of us are doing.. oh dear big time. I have ideas .. anything that worked superbly last time that everyone loved? what were the favorites? I know I am not doing paper pieced oh heck no. I am doing blocks, my favorites being a greek cross, ohio star, wrench, antique tile and such so not wild in any ways .....

    Do your favorite blocks brat, they're perfect. Cleaning the basement today and got sick of cleaning, so cutting began. Each set in a ziplock and they're ready for travel. Got to have something to do you know.

    So are they supposed to be 100% batik or batik in them? I'm guessing 100%, but just making sure!

    100 percent batik no other types of fabrics. not marbled or something that looks batik-y just batiks. I have some yardage that I can use to making 6 blocks is easy with those. I am going for my favorite blocks. I like making them I can make sure easily they will be 12.5 which is nice.. sometimes I get quarter square triangles and then things can go off by 1/8th an inch in the top or bottom corners. frustrates the heck out of me so I will stick with tried and true. signed up for only 3 but if time allows I will sign up for more. I just wanted to be safe at first. these table runners go out the door and its block time

    Well that answers my question about is it just batiks in the blocks. I am excited about this swap. I am signed up for 6 sets. Can't wait to see what everyone else is doing. With the batik fq swap I have 10 beautiful FQ's to use. I will need to go get some lighter to use as a complement. There is a store here that carries only batiks, so I am exicted to get over to the shop, I saw them at the Dallas Quilt show and fell in love with what I saw there.

    Happy quilting.

    oh my gosh that is the greatest site ever.. I only need this one and that one.. post that link in the fat quarter swap for april it was a batik swap and all are lovers of batiks.. give everyone else something to drool over this. I tend to love the batiks that look like water or moss then the ones that have leaves on them.. seems right.. folliage on the ground blends so well.. that is what the batiks remind me of I am finding some of the other colors bring a smile to my face often too.

    off to run out the door best go get socks! its COLD 22 right now. brrrr...
