    That is beautiful. I love your colour selection.

    Your quilt turned out VERY CUTE! I have the book with that pattern in it; lot of other neat stuff in it too. :thumbup:

    I've just finished basting the batik quilt that is in my avatar. I finished the top over a year ago, but wanted to wait until I had more practice FMQing before I did that one. I think I'm ready now, and will start the FMQ on it this weekend. This quilt is destined for my living room where I can see it every day!

    When it is finished, I'll post some detailed pics. :wink:
    I love your quilt. It's very arty. Your colours are amazing. I wish I could see a close up of it.

    I posted a couple of close ups on my website to show the little 3D figures in more detail.

    Have you got a some bigger close ups? I'd love to see the batiks you are using. They work together so well.

    Thanks

    Wow! How cool is that?!?!?! I too love batiks, but have not ventured into an all batik quilt yet....yet.... I am making a QAYG seashell quilt using batiks. It is posted as WIP-QAYG. I got some jelly roll strips that are all dark blue batik, looks to be the same design all through and am looking for inspiration to use them.

    I, too, love batiks. The colors are so vibrant and each quilt is different. The quilt shown here is totally batik. There are 22 different fabrics in this quilt and the colors make the design. The pattern is the basic log cabin. So easy to do and looks so complicated.

    Love your quilt! I'm also hooked on batiks. I'm working on a Desert 9 Patch that came as a kit. LOVE IT! I have another block in mind where I'm going to use batiks. Can't wait to finish the D9P to see how it looks when all the blocks are are together.

    My only understanding of batik is an Indonesian way of printing the material. What else am I missing? What is so special about batiks, a certain look, feel, quality?

    I never could afford batiks on my budget,but a friend turned me on to them. I do hand needleturn applique and batiks are great for this .They dont ravel and the colors are great in Jacobean type applique .I am finishing a sampler one of flowere and it is gorgeous. Also can do on my SS budget as I can buy as little as and eighth of a yard of fabric and get many piecee. hope this makes sense.

    Love those colors MaryB; another Batik addict here. Love the Bali Pops and Jelly Rolls etc. etc., lately have made some handbags from the strips and totes etc. for Christmas gifts. Am going to start on a quilt very soon ... having trouble deciding which color combination; they are endless.

    I have been in love with batiks for years. I gravitate toward them whenever I'm in a fabric store. I drool, I fondle, I buy. I've made several quilts using only batiks or batiks and a solid. I am working on another now. All of the quilts shown in this thread are absolutely beautiful!

    Are you taking a class to do that quilt, or just doing it?
    I am in the process of collecting fabrics for it, but plan
    to take a class.

    Lori, I absolutely love your quilt. Was that your first
    Judy Neimeyer, or have you done others?

    I am not the FQ Stash Queen for nothing. Love, love, love batiks and balis. Have enough on hand to make that quilt. It is absolutely the most fantabulous one I have seen in I don't know how long. Please PM me if you don't mind sharing the pattern.

    Thanks, and God Bless. Cherie

    I hope this worked, here are 2 of my latest quilts
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-93128-1.htm

    I can't seem to look at anything but Batiks. It's like no other fabrics are in the quilt shops.
    Your quilt is just "Beautiful" ,a true work of art. Thanks for sharing!
