    Wow! And what will the backing be?
    peace.
    I think this is a great idea...would add just a bit extra to frame that lovely fabric.

    I know how you feel. A few years ago I purchased a bundle of fat quarters of the most luscious batiks and can't bear to cut into them. Each is more beautiful than the other. Occasionally I will take them out and stare at them thinking I will be inspired to make something beautiful for myself. They're basically all darks. At the time, my vision was to use a solid dark brown as sashing (I love darks) but as far as the choice of blocks, I have no idea where to go with that. So in the meantime, I just fondle the batiks and remain satisfied with that. I admire those who can just cut away and make something beautiful.
    One step at a time, always forward.
