    I'm asking about the large picture... the others are to give some context.

    It would work for some things, but not as easily as the others below it. I would not buy it for my stash, it would be on an if needed basis :D:D:D

    It's loud, but I like it, it seems very tropical to me. It evokes a parrot image.

    I suspect this will have limited use in most people's stash

    I love the background color but not the design/color of whatever that design is. Sometimes it's hard to tell on a batik what the design represents! A lot of it is like abstract art.

    I have to admit I like it.

    With that being said, it is either the perfect fabric for a project or it would be the fabric that doesn't flow quite right.

    Truthfully, I am not all that fond it with the cordinates.

    I like it, but then again, I'm a batik freak.

    I like it. Great addition for a guy's quilt or tropical themed quilt.

    As a large piece, I don't love it. But sometimes these types of fabrics look really great in small doses (and in small pieces) throughout your quilt. I could see it having a place in your quilt this way.

    Its unique for a batik. It would sure add color but don't know how I would use it.
