Sewing Frog Says "Rip-It, Rip-It!"

This is my friend Patty's birthday block. She provided the dark blue batik and gave us the theme "Midnight in the Garden." Since she's a devout Christian lady, I made a palm leaf block. Or should I say, made and re-made and made again! I started with a fat quarter of the teal green and ended up with scraps since I made a few mistakes. That's what I get for rushing.

First I had the dark and light mixed up and had to start over since there is no way I was ripping out all those tiny foundation-pieced stitches! Then I cut piece #3 too short and had to start over. The third time was a charm -- I hope she likes the block after all that!
