    I did not even like batiks until I saw blocks that quiltermomma made and now My imagination has dreamed of a batik quilt. So many swaps. So little time....

    Hi Everyone! I love batiks & I have my 1st block done, so I thought I'd show it. It could almost be two blocks, but it's really the same block with the pieces of fabric swapped. (Do you think it would qualify as two different blocks?)
    Sorry the picture is sideways. I rotated it, but it doesn't work when I put it on my desktop.

    bbmerald, I way I read the rules is you would qualify for 1 set. Your fabrics can be different in each set but each set of 6 has to be a different pattern. Not real positive but that is the way I read it. Would be much easier if all sets were the same fabric and each set had to be a different design. Think probably it was done in case you run 1 block short of a fabric you could sub it and not have the whole set ruined. Hope we'll hear more. I'm trying to pick my so I have enough for all 6 the same, just easier for me.

    No problem, I just thought I'd ask. Kind-of fun with the positive/negative values!

Size:  1.25 MBHave 3 more picked out, blues, pinks, purples. Tomorrow hope to do some more. It does take a little searching to find the right size, but I like it. Something a little different.

    Got 2 more sets done and almost 1 more. Will post pics soon. Seems like I got more cutting done than anything else, cut 1 set and didn't like the color placement, cut another color and that wasn't much better, third time charm. Now I have all kinds of 3 3/8" triangles and 4" squares, there might be a scrappy in my future.

    For those looking for block ideas: http://www.quilterscache.com/BlocksbySizeB.html

    100 or so just in the 10 inch size. Plenty to choose from, no need to stress about the size

    I am thinking about this swap, one problem though, I only have one fabric that is batik. Need to go shopping.

    Jane that is beautiful colors, I like the softness of it and then the pop! I've been mentioning this swap today as I meandered around the board, Maybe we'll have some new ones soon.
    Tracibug went ahead and mailed mine in to you today, afraid if I waited I'd forget! Sorry you'll have to keep watch on them for me at your house.

    I'm finding that simple blocks really work up nicely in batiks, and if you think about using a 4 patch block style, the measurements are pretty easy. I'm plugging different blocks into EQ7 with a 10" finished block and getting the cutting measurements from there. It's a fun process! I'm going to a quilting class this weekend... will bring my blocks for show and tell and see if I can get some folks interested.
