Stitch your stress away. ~Author Unknown
I have a tremendous love for batik fabrics. I’m not sure if it’s due to the colors or the designs, but whatever it is I can’t seem to pass up buying batik fat quarters or yardage.
A few weeks ago I cut up a few squares leftover from a layer cake I bought into squares. I started laying them out and moving them around until I came up with a layout I liked.

I pinned my squares together and decided to hand stitch them. As I got ready to stitch, I drew a 1/4” seam line in hopes that everything would line up nice and even. In other words, I wanted all my corners to line up perfectly.
I finished my stitching late yesterday afternoon and I am very pleased that I only had a couple of corners that didn’t quite match up. My goal now to add embroidery to this top before I sandwich it with batting and backing fabric. I need to go through my floss stash to see what colors I want to use and then think about a design.
