Hi, I am at a standstill with some batiks I bought recently at a craft show. These batiks were packaged and are all dark medium to dark and I am wanting to put lights in the mix, I have tons of light tone on tones, fossil fern and such. Having not ever worked with batiks before I am in a quandary as I spoke with a friend who is also a longarm quilter and she quite strenuously opposed the idea of mixing these non batiks with the batiks saying that mixing these is a bad idea as they do not play well and are a nightmare to quilt...her machine hates them???? I need to know if this is the case ie you should never mix Batiks with non Batiks.
Grateful for any and all input.
