More Batik, and a Block Pattern, Part #1

Caveat: If you're going to make these blocks, make one first, before you cut a bunch of fabric. No matter how careful I am, my blocks almost always come out a little smaller than I expect them to. Please assemble a sample first, just to make sure it's the size you need.

I have always loved peach and rust. I can't wear either but I love them.

I couldn't resist this half-yard bundle on eBay.

After putting together blocks with both black and white points from each of the 6 fabrics, I decided they needed *something more*. The center blocks are 9" square (approx).

So I did some corner playing.

I love this

I will have 16 big blocks (12", approx), enough for an entire lap quilt top, when I finish.

Here is the center block assembly (1/4" seam allowances throughout). I'll post the corners tomorrow.
