    These are all really nice. I was planning on doing the same block that you have with the turtle fabric. I think the yellow/orange/green fabric combo is stunning!

    Don't know if anyone has this book, but I found that "Around the Block Again" by Judy Hopkins has lots of blocks at the 10" finished size. I'm going to pick the pattern for my 3rd set from there. Designing my own unique block for the second set - hope it turns out interesting! - Karin

    I'm working on a block but am having difficulty sticking to batiks only .... there's some other fabrics in my stash that keep working their way into my design. Maybe I need to go shopping for more batiks?
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Is it too late to join this swap?
    I'm still figuring out sashing for blocks I got in a couple of previous batik swaps but enjoy the variety of gorgeous blocks received. Did get two of them completed and gifted. One went as a Christmas gift and the other to a teenager who lost her mom in a car wreck between Christmas and New Years.

    Thanks jaba. Think I will follow short and sweet's example and get a set done before I sign up to be sure the time crunch doesn't land on me with a vengence, which it has a habit of doing just when I'm sure I have plenty of time to get everything done.

    Got a set done last night but discovered they are the wrong size. However I'm not really upset because I like them so much they wouldn't be able to leave my house anyway. LOL! Think I'm going to make some more just like them till I run out if one of the fabrics. So sorry y'all, you just have to wait for another batch with different pattern and fabrics.
