I joined my local quilt guild and signed up for this month's "Block of the Month." It's called a Square in a Square block and it's my first time sewing triangles. I was a little nervous, but I think it came out pretty good. This is an 8.5" x 8.5" block.
The purple fabric was provided by the guild (the focus fabric) and we were instructed to use our own batik fabric. I actually haven't really used much batik, so I bought this orange/pink fat quarter for this project. I really like the colors and texture.
I'll turn in the block at next month's meeting and be entered in a drawing to win all of the blocks to make my own quilt (last month I think they had something like 50 blocks in the drawing!). I am glad I tried it and am anxious to see what colors everyone else used.
