It's my favorite time of year.
This little guy was made as a class model about two years ago, but I love it so much I haven't been able to mail it to anyone. Normally, I'm not too interested in batiks, but they're just perfect for the mottled leaves.
The pattern is from Postcard Quilts by Caroline Reardon. Great book with easy to follow instructions. And these are perfect for using up the little odd shaped scraps after you've finished another project.
