Modern Sunbonnet Sue's Musings

Musings from the mind of a modern day Sue:
SewBatik Challenge Fabric

I was so excited to get my challenge fabric, that I blogged about it before thinking about including a picture. So today, I decided to snap a pic and post it, so that you can all see what the fabric looks like. Here it is. Such a pretty blue batik.

I looked through my pattern books and found a pattern for a 4-1/2 inch Marinar's Compass block. Yes, it is paper pieced. And, I am not a fan of paper piecing. I may try to hand piece the block using the English paper piecing method. Then, I will applique it to my quilt. The total dimensions have to be 20 inches by 20 inches. Right now, I am still in the planning phase, so I don't want to reveal any ideas. I do think that I will use only batiks fabrics. I have quite a collection and plan to pull them out and feel them and decide which ones go with this pretty blue batik. Check back later for more.

Enjoy!

Beautiful blue! It looks like the water color fabrics I have.
