I need Bright Colors!

I was playing in my 
Hidey Hole
(sewing room)
and after working with all of the 
reproduction fabrics of late,
I NEEDED to get out my batiks and play.
I needed BRIGHT COLORS!!

Out came my box of 5" Batik squares...
I cut 5" squares from white...
and I began to make a
(Great Tutorial at the link above.)

Let me tell you...
these blocks are so much fun
AND
go together so quickly!






Having a swivel cutting mat makes cutting these
a breeze.

Ready to take to the sewing machine!



 
Now to decide on the layout....
I am leaning toward the second layout, but
I like them both!


My color fix has been taken care of for a while!

See what others are working on at
Patchwork Times .

Beautiful!

Good morning! Congratulations on being the first on this week's DWM. Your blocks are so colorful! I really like D4P and D9P. Last year I used batik scraps to make a D4P with 2.5" squares which turned out really well.

Ramona said...

I will have to try the D4P with 2.5" squares. I bet that would be fun, too! Thanks!

This is just wonderful, and I LOVE your fabrics. I have never seen the D$P before but you can be sure I will be making one soon. Thanks.

Man, those batiks look fabulous. And, I've been wanting to do a disappearing 4 patch but just haven't gotten around to it. Hum, I have some funky halloween charm squares... hum, .... yours are an inspiration. But, maybe I should finish something or three before I dive in to a new quilt.... Thanks for the temptation (or, er, inspiration!)

Ramona said...

Warning.... these blocks are addictive! :D

Ramona said...

As stated before.... these blocks are addictive! BUT they go together very quickly, especially if you are using a charm pack.. no cutting will be needed to start in on the fun. Enjoy!

I LOVE the second lay out, the white space allows for some fancy quilting in those areas :) Great layouts, both of them.

Diane Wagner said...

Love your fabrics. I favor the second layout. Good job!

PeggyinNO said...

What a lovely assortment of bright batiks!! Love how this is coming out! I haven't tried the disappearing nine patch block yet, but you just gave me the "push" to try it!!

Carolyn Sullivan said...

I love both of them. and the colors are fabulous.

Ramona said...

Unfortunately, fancy quilting is not my forte... yet...BUT I do have an awesome Longarm quilter!

Ramona said...

This is a really fun block to make and goes so quickly. I can see more than one of these quilts in my future. :D

Ramona said...

Thank you. Batiks are my favorite and I love the bright colors.

Ramona said...

Thank you for your comments. The second one is probably my choice, too. I might have to make two... one of each layout. :)

Ramona said...

Thank you. It's a fun quilt to make.

Ramona said...

Thank you. The colors make it in my opinion.

Julianne said...

Ramona said...

Thank you.

Ramona said...

It is such a fun pattern to make. I am really like the batiks with the white background, too. Thank you for your comments.
