Sorry Nines, but the blocks aren't for you! I just thought you would like to see these batik blocks I have been working on. These were all made for a member of my birthday group from quilt guild. I had to order some batik fat quarters and then I got addicted to making them and couldn't stop. I only needed to make one block - but ended up with six! The one in the bottom right corner was my first attempt - and I misread the directions and ended up with a 14 inch block instead of a 12 inch block. I am going to give it to the birthday girl anyway - maybe she can piece it into the backing!
Tomorrow is our monthly birthday lunch - at my house. We are having corn chowder and potato soup. For desert we will have Kentucky Derby pie and vanilla ice cream. Can't wait!
Hope you are warm and safe where ever you are. We have had two snow days from school because of ice. Lots of people from town who had gone to Arizona for the national championship football game are still stuck out west! Great reason to stay inside and quilt!
