Really cute.  I don't blame you for keeping it.  I'm sure you will find a way to enlarge it that suits you.

I finished a top from the square in a square batik block that I received from a block exchange that Mel hosted a few years ago.  I had started putting them together at a retreat a year or so ago but now the top is done and ready to go to Carrie to quilt.  I had a piece of 108" wide batik backing fabric in blue which will be the backing.  I will keep this one, at least for now.

Very, very, very pretty with those batiks!!!!!!!!  I made a bed quilt in that pattern once upon a time (it was called "Cobblestone" in the magazine) and I consider it a classic.

Nice looking design wall in black fabric!

I have mine in white flannel and find that I'm always using those Scotch brand lint rollers to pick off bits of "string"; I imagine you will be doing the same. LOL

I did that swap too and so far it is a nice stack of blocks. Yours looks really pretty!

progress so far.  I worked on the one with 9 patches until I ran out fo 2" squares, then on the other until I ran out of triangles.  Then last night I cut the rest of the squares & triangles (and some additional noodles while I was at it for later).  Pleased with how they are coming out so far.  I did receive the two new to me books by Kim Brackett and now of course I have about 4 or 5 more ideas that I flagged to make with novelties.  But I'm going to finish these 1st before I cut any more.  I really would like to make a dent in my novelty stash. (and don't you guys roll your eyes either!)  I am getting a bit low on my white background, I usually buy the wide backing from Connecting threads, I need to watch and catch it on sale again.  Still @ $15/yd of 108 wide it's still a good price - if I did the math right it puts it around $5.90 per yard for normal width.  But I like it even better when on sale.

Check out Marshall’s Dry Goods. They have really good sales and I’ve always been pleased with the quality. 108” goes for $4.95/yd. I’ve never looked for white though. 
 

Thanks for the suggestion, I always forget about them.
