There are so many gorgeous brown batiks that I'm really glad I selected brown as one of the "around the world" color ways for my Dear Jane. I also love the polka dots! I never noticed before how many of my batiks have dots; I'll have to work to not make that a theme. lol
I like blocks that are made like this because I had two chances at getting the center just right. I get to pick the better of the two centers; that's always nice.
