Design Wall Monday -Batik Back

Over the weekend I got lots of sewing in, because The Mister has taken an unexpected road trip. So nothing to distract me - except the newspaper and blogs and fabric folding... But really, those are minor distractions and I made lots of progress!

I sewed the batik blocks together. And then took two rows off and resewed them in the proper order. Curiously, I did not notice the error until I began thinking about how I would quilt it. I now have a better understanding of how quilts end up with a 'glaring' mistake, because it only glares when you have finished it!(or in my case, almost finished)

I have enjoyed sewing with batik fabric, but I don't see myself using it for any other projects in the near future, so I wanted to use it up as much as possible. Piecing the back also saves having to buy more fabric, when as it turns out, I had plenty!

Today, I am going to try and get it basted and maybe start on the quilting!

What are you working on?
