    17 yards of batik

    I purchased a total of +- 17 yards of batik mostly fat quarters and some fat eights from eBay. The colors are blues, greens, pinks, oranges and multicolored pieces with yellow on them. They started arriving yesterday and now I am am looking for ideas for a quilt. I would like to showcase the fabric, so I do not want to cut the fabric too much and I am looking for suggestions. This will be for my bedroom. Thanks a lot!
    I've got a smile on my face, I've got four walls around me
    The sun in the sky, the water surrounds me
    I'll win now but sometimes I'll lose
    I've been battered, but I'll never bruise

    have fun, you could also just google images of batik quilts and see what takes your fancy. I also love the jewel box pattern done in batiks
    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    Square in a square or bento box would be pretty in batiks. I've also seen batiks used for Shadow box and it's beautiful.

    That is a stunning one but you don't need to buy the pattern. It's just a basic design - squares, sashings and corner stones. You determine the size of the squares and the sashings/corner stones.

    Do you have a solid dark fabric for the sashings?

    I made a double wedding ring w/batits...beige melons and centers...just gorgeous. Used extra fab for pillows.
    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.

    Yes, I was thinking of doing it without pattern. It is fairly simple design. I have charcoal gray Kona solid that would be perfect. Thank you! I have about 3 yards which should be ok.
