Keep carrying, you're doing great. Love the choice of fabrics and the way you used the pattern

Gorgeous! I don't know --- I have this class and only looked at this project so far. It looks like a lot of work to me --- many steps, starching etc. Am I making too much of a problem where one does not exist? Should I try it in my "spare time". Yours is surely inspiring.

Surfside 6 I 'dare' you to try a block. Just spray starch two squares of fabric to start with. I bet you'll find this project has less steps than had it been conventionally pieced. You know... just because 'other' projects don't mention ironing or pressing doesn't mean it isn't called for.

I seemed to like the order of starching, sewing with the cheater 2 inch sticky note & cutting. A little OCD? Perhaps. I loved how magically the block came together with the techniques Anita provided. I only had about an hour a day to play with the project so it wasn't really a time issue for me.

I think you've really brought out the painterly nature of batiks and composed a lovely liquid top.
