    I am falling under the spell of Batiks. Lately I have been looking at them with new eyes. (no not glasses. I already have those). I have been going through different sites just pondering them, and what they might be used for.

    I am really in big trouble. There are so many to chose from. I will have to be a millionaire to get all of them.....ahhhhhhh!!!

    Oooh, batiks are so much fun! I just signed up for Fat Quarter Shop's monthly batik club. They now send me 12 different fat quarters of batiks every month ($30). I got my first squishy yesterday, and they're gorgeous! Batiks are just beautiful!

    Batiks are such great blenders. I love working with them.

    I think we all love batiks. The only problem I have with them is that I am a handquilter. They are more closely woven or the dying process makes them very hard to handquilt through at least for me.

    I always thought they were pretty, but didn't realize how beautifully they transferred into quilts until I made one. I love the depth and richness that they give to a quilt! Unfortunately, I always get sucked into buying wild patterned fabrics...I should stick more with the batik types, they really make the prettiest quilts in my opinion. I'm debating making an Irish Chain...maybe I can find some pretty batiks to use for it!

    I have spent 2 hours trying to get a picture of my favorite batik quilt to transfer but Olympus and HP seem to hate each other.
    Had to move the picture all over the place.
