disappearing patch block

  I am so worked up about starting a patchwork project as I haven`t a clue what I am doing but today after finding some instructions on the web thought I would have a go at a block using a batik charm pack that was lurking in a box.    Well it went better than I thought it would, made 3 blocks which have now been cut so have 12  6" ones to assemble. Not sure about how to put them together, they are spread out on the kitchen table at the moment but will not rush, I expect they will go back in the box for a while and maybe arrange them when I am with a patchworker, have a very dear friend Cheryl who lives in London,    hoping she will come and stay a while as she is  very good with everything to do with patchwork and stitching of all kinds.Of course I want her to come anyway,   sounds like I only want her for her talents!! no way   I have known her since we both lived in Manchester in the 1990`s.

oh yes I am feeling quite pleased with myself!!

What a lovely patch set.There are loads of tutorials on the web.I found the Missouri Star quilt co has many very useful You Tube videos. The lady is very friendly in her delivery, and has lots of tips.
good on you having a go at this!

WOW! You've done a great job pulling such luscious colors together - I love your blocks! Batiks can be so much fun to use. When putting them together I find that if you use black as a trim it really makes everything pop and come together. Wish I lived closer to you to come ove rand play!

No, it doesn´t sound like that at all, you only appreciate her talents. We all should do that, all have their talents and if your friend is into patchwork, why not?

The fabrics look very good, colourful and springlike.
