I've been collecting Batiks for some years now, with the plan to make a quilt for my guest room in a Polynesian theme. The AFA quilt will look great in batiks! So late today I put two 12" squares together (I know.... orange and green AGAIN!) and drew my lines. I used my Singer 201K again - did I mention how I love to sew on this machine?
Sorry the photo of the block is a little dark - I was so keen to show you!! If I used the flash on the camera, the block looked washed out. I'll take a better pic tomorrow to post on the Quilting Gallery site.
Thank you Pat ! I love this method!
If you are a long time follower of my blog, you may recall that my hubby and I lived in Papua New Guinea and American Samoa many years ago. So that's why I want to make a Polynesian theme quilt - perhaps I should be calling it my Island theme quilt as PNG is Melanesian.

The next block in the AFA quilt-along will be posted soon, can't wait to see what we are sewing next!
