    I use a lot of batiks -- a way to use the stripey ones -- Borders, piano key style. Cut across the stripes and sew on. It gives a pieced look when you do not want to take the time. I use them often when making children's quilts that will be washed often I like the striped look.

    K Fassett uses lots of stipes in one of his older books. You might check those patterns. Another idea is this pattern that i hope to make some day. http://www.grizzlygulchgallery.com/i..._for_the_Money

    Oh, I love this block! What beautiful work you've done. I'm in the design stage now of a quilt that I want to put a block with loons in. Yours has inspired me. Thanks. I really love batiks, especially in landscapes!

    No I don't like them because you have to be sure its cut straight if your doing squares etc.

    I'd use two colors as whole blocks and then lay them perpendicular to each other and make a basketweave effect.

    I like ALL kinds of batiks, but have yet to add stripes to my stash. The stripes would lend themselves to many uses.

    Oohh! Love the first one. I have never seen anything like it. Would be perfect for a landscape quilt. Is it new or still available? Now I have something new to look when I got to Pacific International Quilt Show next month.

    I actually used the second one (purple and pink) as a border and backing on a batik quilt and it was stunning.
