    I have a whole bolt of this beautiful batik fabric, but am not sure what to make from it. How would you use it? Links to pattern ideas would be very welcome! (The ruler is a 6-1/2" square for scale.)

    I think it would make a great 4 patch posey or a kaleidoscope how ever the flowers are so far apart for that but it would be lovely

    I would not cut it up, I would use it as a backing for a batik quilt. Beautiful.:)

    OR: fussy cut around those lovely florals and use as a center for another block such as sawtooth star, etc.

    I would fussy cut those marvelous flowers and choose the other colors in the print like the green, yellows and maybe a little of dark purple to surround them with thus bringing out the colors from the print even more.

    I saw backing or use it as a boarder depending on how much you have.

    Since the flowers are attached with vertical vines, I would think about using it as a border on a batik quilt.
