Did you know.....?
What is Batik?
Batik is both an art and a craft, which is becoming ever more popular and well known among contemporary artists all over the world, as a wonderfully creative medium. The art of decorating cloth using wax and dye, has been practiced for centuries in many parts of the world including China, Japan, India, South America and Europe. In Java, an island in Indonesia, batik is part of an ancient tradition, and some of the finest batik cloth in the world is still made there. The word batik originates from the Javanese word “tik” which means to dot. Batik is both a verb (to batik) and a noun (a batik – an object made by batiking!). Batik is usually made on a fabric surface (such as cotton, silk, linen, rayon or hemp), but batik techniques can also be used on paper, wood, leather and even a ceramic surface.

BOM - Block of the Month
Georgia's BOM Blog!
I am assuming that you have all been busy completing your Month 1 block and have encountered no real problems. I hope you are all watching your ¼ inch seam allowance and remembering to press not iron your blocks because all of those bias edges will give you trouble later if you are not paying attention to the basics.
Month 2 is very straight forward as long as you are careful to label all of the components and fabrics and pay attention to the diagrams for proper layout etc. You are making pinwheel blocks that will give movement to your quilt when you begin to put it together starting in month 7.
Again, I will be available to help you with any problems or concerns on Friday, May 27 from 10 to 2 at the shop. If you have problems before then, you can always stop by and both Rachelle and Maggie will try to answer your questions if I am not there.
Enjoy month 2 and call if you are needing help or have questions.
BLOCK # 3 will be ready for pick up on June 13
