I spied this pretty little piece on Pinterest and think it is lovely. Decided I would make some blocks from my batiks. This actually is done in Kaffee Fasset's fabrics and I have quite a few but not enough of the pastel ones to get the same feeling. So batiks it is.
I cut the blocks 5 inches square and the smaller ones are 2 1/2". Sewed diagonally across the smaller square then trimmed the excess. It wastes fabric, but the ease of doing it this way is worth it to me. You could use the leftover triangles for some other project.
Here are part of the blocks up on my basement wall. The coloring is different than the top one, but I think there is still nice contrast. I was going to make a trip out to Park Bench and pick up some quarter yards of batiks but decided I should be able to complete a small hanging - even a large one - with all the fabric residing in my basement!
I have another stack of blocks ready to sew so will get back at it. Love working with the different colors!!
