All of my quilting time this week has been in the piecing stage (well, except for unpicking my Christmas Strings quilt). After my post last week I went ahead and made my Blue Slabs bigger. I rearranged the blocks to spread out some of the dominant fabrics, trimmed a few down and then picked some short strings out of my 2.5" bin. I'm happy with the results and my next step will be to frame the blocks in white and trim them down to 12.5" wonky blocks.
This morning I was thinking I might need to visit my LQS for some binding fabric because I always think of my batik stash as being small.
Um...NO! I'm not sure if there is a reliable translation for 8.5" of folded fabrics but guess what - I have a nice range of choices in that stack.
I'm leaning towards the one on the lower left because those bits of orange & blue really pop those shades in the blocks.
