    LOL, Yes, I was asleep, but here is a pic of block 9 to give you an idea what is possible. I am using Kona black cotton background and I washed beforehand, though I didn't see any colour in the machine. I also washed my batiks I intend to use. I put 4 colour catchers in the machine with them, and they came out a murky brown/grey, so please be warned.

    I will be doing my blocks by hand, using the needle turn method, and I aim to take pics of my blocks as I go along, to give you an idea of how I am making them. The machine people might also get something out of it, even if it is only the order in which I do mine.

    I will also be cutting away fabric from behind my appliques, to keep down the weight, and also the number of layers - they can build up quite a bit in some places, so I will be showing the backs, as well as the fronts as we go along. I think it's too soon to do that now, so I will just show you the front of the first block.
