    Practice block table top

    A while back, I had asked the QB to help me with ideas on how to use a batik cracker package. Several suggested a pattern that makes a false cathedral window.by using 5 ten inch crackers.
    I thought it would be a good idea to practice on scraps as I did not want to "ruin" the batik squares, which were expensive- sure glad I did his as the windows in the block came out a bit wonky due to the bias.

    so now, I am open to other ideas for the batik 10 inch fabric squares of which I have 40. Any other ideas. The fabrics are from hoffman's wild berry collection. Thanks

    Great idea. I love your sample piece. What size squares is a "cracker" pack?

    Hoffman's carries pre- cut 10 inch squares called " crackers" that are sold in packages of 40 squares. The practice quilt here was made out of 5 inch squares and the entire block ends up to be 9 inches.

    I don't see 'wonky'. I see 'Wow'!! Maybe if you starch heavily, the bias may be easier to handle?
