    What about something like this picture, it would be easy to make up yor own pattern. Just large blocks on point with black or white sashing.

    I bought this pattern to go with a Hoffman Jasmine batik bundle. I've got it cut, just need time to sit and sew it.

    DH is going to Indoesia in October. Batiks are at the top of his shopping list for me. If you have the name of the shop I would love to know exactly where to send him!

    I like Atkinson's "Fire Escape" pattern for showy batiks.

    This is what i did,. using 6 1/2 inch squares

    You can measure the print on the fabric to determine what size square would show the fabric pattern off to best advantage, then cut all the squares to that size. The corner square is just half the size (or less) of the main square, so if you cut 10" squares, the corners would use a 5" (or less).

    Those fabrics are awsome. How do the prices compare to here in the USA? I can't wait to see what you make with them.
