I don't know whether you will be able to see the difference in these 2 dark fabrics if you click to enlarge the photos. The one on the left is a patterned black batik and the one on the right is a dark purple mottled batik. I'm still looking for my black mottled batik. I didn't get any new blocks sewn. I worked in the basement while I did laundry and did some knitting. Then my friends from Montana stopped by. They are in town for their nephew's wedding this weekend. It was so good to see them. I gifted them the second quilt in this post. I knew I was giving it to them as I finished it and was glad I didn't have to mail it. It is more fun to gift them in person.
I finished this dishcloth. I used the end of one ball of yarn and was disappointed when the next ball that I tied on was going to repeat the green stripe. But then I have to keep this in perspective, this is for washing dishes and the dishes won't care.
