I was looking high and low (but obviously not high or low enough) for a bunch of pink and gray blocks I had been working on as a leader-ender months ago before I got bored with them. And found these gorgeous blocks! They are the yield of a swap from God Alone Knows When. We made 12" finished sawtooth stars with an interesting 6" block for the center. We used cool batiks and plain white. On discovering them tonight, I was delighted! I think they are gorgeous. There are two more, but they had some pink in them and didn't blend in quite as well as I would have liked. Seems I need to make three more blocks and I'll have the fixings of a nice top. I'm going to enjoy making those three blocks; I've fished out all my cool batik scraps anddug out my Around The Block book and am perusing options. I think I'll set them on point with alternating squares, either white or batik to match whatever the side triangles are going to be. Oh, this is going to be fun!
