    Lee & Mary your quilts are beautiful. I love batiks also and have been collecting them a little at a time for a quilt.

    (1) "Celtic Sea Spirals" (28x28) - I made this as a sample for a Celtic Applique class that I taught. I have yet to quilt and bind it since I plan to teach the class again soon and students need to see the back of the quilt top to see what's what sometimes. I'll echo quilt in rayon variegated thread. The fabrics came from leftovers and "failed auditions" for the "Stained Glass Braid" quilt (#3 below).

    (2) "Category 1 Miami - A Small Storm at Sea" (24x24) - I made this for the "Quilting Natural Florida II" Exhibit, which was a joint effort of my quilt guild and the University of Florida (Gainesville, FL) Museum of Naturasl History.

    (3) "Stained Glass Braid" (70x93) - I made this in a workshop taught by Jane Hardy Miller, author of French Braid Quilts. No, I didn't follow the rules but made a quilt I really, really liked. I do an "honest" French Braid quilt with proper gradation another time.

    Hello, my name is Connie and I'm a batikaholic. When I enter a quilt shop. my feet take me to the batik section first and won't let me leave until something attaches itself to me and I hand over my money. At least 2/3 of my stash is batiks. I'm a charter member of the batik club at my favorite LQS (http://www.quiltsandtreasuresinc.com/) and never leave a meeting without buy a few FQs at the very least.

    Here are a few of my latest creations.

    Have you seen the batiks from SWDecretives. I think the line of batiks is called Land of Enchantment. My problem with them is that I go in after some fat quarters and love the designs so much I wind up only getting 2 of the batiks but 5 yards of each.

    Love your quilt. If anyone lives near Kerrville TX, Creations on Main St. is having a sale on batiks this weekend. Oh, I felt like a kid in a candy shop and bought some beautiful batiks.

    I also love Batiks. I am doing a BOM "Batik Stars", has 13 large stars and the sashing is all small stars. Going to be a beauty I think. Will be giving it to my DGD. Also have a mystery batik I did last year on my bed. It is mine!!

    Oh yes, I love, love, love Batiks, too. I just finished a queen-sized top made of mostly batiks in the Montana Cartwheel pattern. I call it Wild Thing. I'll try to get a post up of it, but I just had to say how much I admire the beautiful batik quilts each of you has posted.
    More later!

    I have seen batiks in the catalog -when you buy the fabric in difference colors are the designs in the dye the same? And what are bali fabrics. I must be missing something not using these fabrics. What would be a good pattern for my firsr batik>

    Hi. My name is Quilting Nonnie and I'm a Batik Addict. (Hi Quilting Nonnie) LOL

    Here's one I made for my son who likes batiks and blue. I loved it so much I made one for myself.

    The pattern is Gumballs and you can buy it at Stitchin' Heaven.

    I taught a class on this quilt. And now, as I think of it, I have one pattern that was left over. If you would like the pattern, just PM me. First one gets the pattern free, postage included. Offer ends January 29 @ 7 p.m. EST. (That's just so people don't keep PM-ing me! I'm sure it will be gone in a few minutes!)
