    I have some that are a smaller print that I know I could cut up, but alot of them are bigger and don't want to lose the patterns. This is going to be frustrating. I do have some picked out that I want to use for the turtles(my friend is having twins...a boy and a girl. So they need matching boy and girl blankets). The rest of it, I might just cover my walls with it so I can see it all the time lol.

    Those are just beautiful. I love batiks. Sometimes they are just nice to take out and pet.

    Look at them for a while before deciding on cutting. They are so pretty.

    Those are just wonderful.....I'm green with envy. It's only been in the last year or so that I've begun to really see and appreciate batiks.

    Beautiful fabrics. I have some Batiks too. I am going to make a quilt out of them to keep in my truck.


    And is that a Wal Mart receipt I spy on the rug? LOL

    I saw a really stunning, yet simple quilt on line somewhere...I just can't remember where. I did a search here & checked my bookmarks but didn't find it. If I can explain it correctly, it is simply bright/light large circles on dark squares - all batiks. The border had smaller batik squares set in. Does anyone remember seeing anything like that here?

    For all of you batik fans, I suggest you go over to the Swaps link and check out the current batik block swap. There's still plenty of time to sign up and participate. The last swap resulted in absolutely beautiful blocks being swapped. You can still find pix of them on the thread for the swap that ended a few months ago.

    I did a quilt with Bali fabric using the half-hexi pattern.
    I will try to post it later under Bali half-hexi. It was fun arranging the material into a modern grandma flower garden quilt.

    They are a type of fabric. Very pretty...My Favorite!!! A friend works at one of the fabric stores here in town and we joke all the time about the Batiks, they are her favorite too.
