    Those are marvelous. I would pair them with darker batiks, unless you do want a pale quilt/baby something. For me, the easy choice would be something like my "Melons in the Batik Patch"

    Oops, I can't get my pix to upload.

    Jackie,
    They would look wonderful as part of a log cabin block. Here's the link to the Log cabin quilt I made.

    See Jenny's tutorial for a chevron quilt at Missouri Quilt Co. You will need some darker colors to make it pop. froggyintexas

    WOW those are beautiful. If you can't figure out what to do with them, send them my way....just kidding. I would pair with same color only darker batiks.

    Using your layer cake for the light logs and finding dark batiks for the dark logs would make into a gorgeous log cabin quilt.
