green tumbling blocks
These came from my scrap bin at the left, as I keep scraps by color.
I used templates made from yogurt lids to baste around, and wanted the feel of a forest floor.
My scraps are anything odd shaped or less than an eighth of fabric. Of course some of them came from this bin...
I separate them from color bins because of two reasons.
one is I have some trouble with batiks and allergy.
two is they sometimes defy color placement!
I love them, and use them often however as I've washed even the little pieces three times making them slightly less offensive to sinuses. I might in a pinch pull from these bins...
I have already chosen a background for the above piece. It's a batik, and so very organic and exciting and I will show you the finished piece later.... gators....
