bag o' batiks

leftover from last year's pineapple blossom with bonnie is this little bag of batik scraps, well the little pieces anyway.  couldn't decide how to use them but it would definitely be scrappy.  then i printed off this little paper pieced block pattern, 25 of 'em, and put it aside.  curiosity got the best of me one day so decided to make one up just to see.  yep, i like it.  judging from this one block, doubt that the 25 will use up all these little scraps but no matter, they will make great inchies and 9-patch squares too.  and no, it isn't a new project, but my resolve is weakening after receiving a swap package of 80 shirting squares in the mail the other day.  can i resist and for how long?

  1. Oh Grace, I like this idea! What a pretty little block. Where did you find the pattern? I need to try this.
