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.

Looking good!  So bright and pretty.  I was just going to suggest Marshall Dry good too.  I saw lots of lovely novelties at great prices.

I'm glad you are pleased with their quality.  I just placed my first order with them. I ordered on Tues and got a notification it will be here Sat.  I ordered a whole bolt of black dream cotton and it was $2.55/yd  when you get it by the bolt.

I love this part of quilting, it reminds me of a jigsaw puzzle, seeing the quilt "picture" appear.    Sewing is going to be interesting.  I plan on sewing the rectangles sets, then putting them back up on the wall then numbering them.

I'm discovering I'm not very good at parallelograms.  I keep getting confused on which direction they are supposed to lean.  I made 5 pinwheels going the wrong way and had to redo them, they looked too weird with the others.  For another quilt I cut a big stack of white parallelograms the wrong direction also.  Obviously I'm more used to dealing with squares.  It makes a big difference if you cut with the right side up or down.  angry

This particular quilt used up every single white waste triangle I had, along with almost every scrap from my white basket.  I love using up those little things.  I still have a big bag of brightly colored ones tho, saving for you Jonna.
