I may have a piece but it's not my fav color.

Sure do! I have so much black in my stash, I've been accused of being a 'goth' quilter! :D

I do. I bought that exact fabric for the quilt my BOM is currently doing. Haven't cut it yet but it is very pretty.

Like someone already said black very hard to sew. Love how it seems to pop other colors. Also do not wear black. DH &I are not black wearers.

Only one fat quarter that came in a collection. Not one of my favorite batiks.

I have the black batik from Connecting Threads. I bought 14 yards and have used almost all. Not quite as harsh as a solid black, but still makes colors pop. Love it!

I don't have any batiks, but I have black fabric that has print on it as well as plain black fabric. I used it to make the colors pop (and copied it from an original)

**for the record, it's still not done yet.

I do. It's left over from a wolf log cabin I made for SIL a couple of years ago. It's not a color I usually buy though, especially in a batik
