Sewing Again

I've been sewing this weekend after a long hiatus.  Owning a first-year quilt store has put a bit of a cramp in my sewing schedule, but my broken ankle made that worse.   At last, I have a cast that can come off and I can use that foot to drive my car and sewing machine again.   Woohoo!

I'm using a Tonga Treat 5" Mini pre-cut batik set to make a sample for Sewcial Studio.  My inspiration came from the Summer 2012 issue of Generation Q Magazine.  Click here for a link to the pattern.  Their pattern uses 7 1/2" blocks, but mine will be smaller.

Here's what's on my makeshift design wall...

I need more background fabric before continuing, but I like it so far!
