Another Button, Another Quilt

There is a new button on my sidebar. It is for the Bloggers' Block-a-palooza Quilt Along, hosted by Quilt Dad; if you click on the button it will take you to his blog. He has 16 designers each creating a block, and a new one posts every Monday and every Thursday.
I have a fat quarter bundle of batiks that I bought on a great clearance sale last year. I finally dug it out and decided to use the batiks for this quilt along. I've not used batiks before; I find them a bit challenging, for they really stick together and are a bit stiff. But I love the vibrant colors.
Block 1
Block 2
Block 3
So yes, I have started another quilt. I made these three blocks last night in order to catch up. Tomorrow is a new block! I've not really done a quilt along before and it is very fun. I love to check the flickr photo pool for this quilt along and see all the varieties of fabrics being used by others and how different the blocks can look, depending on the color value of the fabric. The flickr pool is here: .

Wow, you are turning out the work constantly. Ever thought of selling your work? Those blocks are lovely.
