Another Primitive Art Block

This time I have used a napkin! Yes, it is part of a batik tablecloth set I bought in Singapore over 20 years ago. The background has faded a bit, but I have actually used the reverse side, so that the background wasn't so prominent in the overall quiltlet. I guess that some would say it is a cheater cloth, but I'm not worrying, as I have done heaps of work on some of the other blocks.
So here it is, Indonesian batik art. Simply quilted - I used smoky monofilament to stitch around the figure, then black rayon around the outside:
I need to find something suitable to use as the sashing between all these blocks - I'm sure I have something in my vast stash!
