Assemble Block A
1. Sew together a tan rectangle batik 1-1⁄2x42" strip and a tan wheat batik 1-1⁄2x42" strip to make a strip set. Press seams toward tan rectangle batik strips. Repeat to make a second strip set. Cut strip sets into two 12-1⁄2"-wide segments and two 20-1⁄2"-wide segments (Diagram 1).
2. Add 12-1⁄2"-wide segments to short edges of a T-shirt 12-1⁄2x16-1⁄2" rectangle. Press seams toward pieced segments (Diagram 2). Join 20-1⁄2"-wide segments to remaining edges to make Block A. Press seams toward pieced segments. Block A should be 16-1⁄2x20-1⁄2" including seam allowances.
3. Using tan crescent batik and blue-green batik 1-1⁄2x42" strips, repeat steps 1 and 2 to make a second Block A.
