Anyway, when I wasn't doing the above I did manage to get just a little done on the CQ:
I trimmed enough from the applique blocks to make them 8", and added the borders. I don't think I have enough of the lighter pink fabric to add a border around all four blocks. Someone mentioned doing a narrow border using the batik I like so much. The fabric here may still be too dark or too much of a contrast with the narrow borders between the appliques. I may have more of the pink stashed somewhere. If not I probably have something similar I can use.
This is the darker print with no batik. The print fabric appears a little darker here than in reality.
That's about it. The weekend goes by too quickly, especially Sunday it seems.
