    Wow,that is a really pretty batik. I would put all the colors in with it. I am a scrappy kind of quilt maker- I agree that this fabric would be the focus! :thumbup:

    Absolutely love this fabric. I too will have to get a bit of it. I would love to see the purples with it and would consider the greens.
    You said the price increase is in April. Will it be a soft increase or hit us hard???

    They're going up by about the same amount that all the other makers have raised their prices so far this year. You can expect retail prices to climb by 50 - 75 cents / yard.

    It's not the end of the world. I'm expecting to see the same size price increase again in another 6 months or so.

    As a collector of batiks, have to say I have NEVER seen one with roses. It is gorgeous! There are so many blue to purple batiks that would highlight them beautifully. Of course, would throw in a splash of green. :thumbup:

    I would buy it. Probably use lavender/purple with it.

    What do you think? Do you like it? Which of the colors in it would you be most likely to try to bring out with coordinating fabrics? The mauve, or the lavender-blue, or the green?

    That is stunning. I would get all the colors coordinating. It would make such a serene quilt.

    Yes. I just can't pass this one up! It's calling to me too loudly... and you know how that goes!

    Timeless Treasures' website indicates that it will be available in late June. It's from a new group called Tonga Gelato.

    Oh, I love that! It is nice to see a light color batik that is not in the tan line. I love any color in it, log cabin blocks with all the colors and this as some sort of focal. Can't wait for this one :!: :-D
