    This is The Garden Block from quilter's cache. I searched a long time for a pattern that I felt would work with my batiks. This one won. The pattern called for three different fabrics, so I scrapped it up by making the 3rd fabric the scraps (rectangles). The other two are my two favorites out of the bunch. I think it'll look fine. I'll see how four look for wall hangings...and if things are going well I'll try a lap quilt.

    That 1/4" seam was really fighting against me today. :? Sigh...oh the frustration.

    I had planned to do the pineapple log cabin with these fabrics, but changed my mind this week.

    Here's the square, which is really 2 sets of two squares. I added photos of those.

    I call it tranquility. Lower case for effect. :wink:

    Batiks are so pretty and you did a great job picking out the right pattern for them. Be sure and show us the finished project.

    I like! and "tranquility" with no cap is perfect--tranquility should not shout at you with all those pushy capital letters!
