Yes I love to use black and it does make the other colors POP.

They have a color called "Raven", and it is probably the most boring selection of all, because it's... just black... and not much variation in shade at all.

And so I'm asking, do you have any black "solid" batik in your stash?
ABSOLUTELY..........and it is the RAVEN.......it is the blackest blackcolor....I hve used it for blocks, sashing, inner and outer borders and binding.......and I absolutely love the effect of the stark black when I am trying to "set off" another block, or create a clear division between two rather busy prints....I always keep 3-4 yards on hand.
