Batik works

These rectangular blocks are for E1's quilt. All the pieced blocks got finished. She wanted a monochromatic look in browns to go with her bedroom's decor. Love the little floating squares of color, don't you?

And some more.....

This fabric below was the original idea for the alternate solid rectangles for the pattern. Uh, not gonna work, is it? Way too busy. Time to shop!

A lovely quilt shop visit ensued on Sunday. I managed to actually make a list of things I was shopping for, for once, and got several lovelies that haven't had their pictures taken yet--portraits and closeups to follow. Although it didn't qualify as a Quiltathon a la Judy, at least I was doing some sewing! Yesterday and today were very hot and as I am in my upstairs office typing this, I think it is still about 80+ degrees in here and it is nearly 8:30 pm. Luckily this is supposed to break--we don't have air conditioning and neither do probably 90% of this town's residences. Sign me "looking forward to a foggy day soon" (not one of my usual wishes!).

WOW! I mean seriously. I'm not a batik girl but these colors are calling to me. Amazing blocks.
