    I heard on television once that if you don't like the front of the fabric, turn it over. Of course, if you like both sides, you may have to toss a coin. Whatever side you like should be okay.

    I love batiks and would sew with them every day if I could. Your quilt is going to be beautiful!

    I agree about no right or wrong side to batiks. They are nearly identical. I just love the fabrics you chose, and I can't wait to see how it turns out. I think another batik quilt is in my near future!!!

    Well I finished piecing the top, and I just bought the batting and the thread for quilting. Tomorrow when I get up, finish my morning housework chores, I am gonna pin baste it all ready for quilting!!
