Just curious what is your current favorite color mix for batiks? It might be a different combination than you would choose for printed fabrics, because of the way the dyes flow together and mix, in batiks.

If you can't decide on just one... it's okay to list several favorites! :-)

right now i pull a batik i love, then pull a lighter shade to go with it. I only have green , turq and cream batiks so far, so guess those are my favs.

I always love purple and green together. I use it alot in the Civil War quilts and I also like chedder and blue together. I can't say that I have a certain favorite because when I go to look at fabric then it depends on the pattern and the colors all together. But purple and green are at the top of my list

First, you have asked a very hard questions. With that said, I am not a big fan of browns. So I would have to say anything except the browns. I can not narrow it down to just one combination :lol:
