I have been having a great time working on Talavera Tiles by Desert Bloom Quilting. Last weekend was an oddly event free weekend so I spent Saturday cutting fabric and Sunday sewing. I’ve had a little time to sew throughout the week and have finished 3 sets (of 5) of the blocks. As soon as I post this, I’m going to finish the last 2 groups of blocks and maybe even start assembling tonight.
I’ve forgotten how much I love sewing on batiks. The fabrics are so crisp and lie so flat.
Here is the center block. Square in a square units are not my favorite thing in the world and this was good to practice them. The pattern has a few suggestions to get everything to line up right.
For Block 1, there twelve of these guys.
And eight of Block 2.
I don’t think it was intentional, but the number of blocks goes down from Block 1 – 4, so I only have four of Block 3 and two of Block 4 to make. It’s a nice stepdown.
Back to sewing the last ones!
