    A quick question - is there a right or a wrong way to batik fabric? I have turned over and turned over and don't really see a difference in these fabrics

    Is that like a stack and whack method? Love the material you have.

    I stacked the fabric up to cut it using the TRI-RECS ruler... a bit like Stack and Whack - cut strips, use 60 degree triangle but you cut another triangle either side of it... make sense?
