    This is going to be lovely when your finished.
    I have this block of sorts with batiks. I absolutely love how they look in a finished piece but I don't enjoy the process working with them. I'm not sure if its because I can't envision the finished project or what it is but it really blocks me from doing alot with them.
    Does anyone else have this with certain fabrics? Just curious

    I heard on television once that if you don't like the front of the fabric, turn it over. Of course, if you like both sides, you may have to toss a coin. Whatever side you like should be okay.

    I agree about no right or wrong side to batiks. They are nearly identical. I just love the fabrics you chose, and I can't wait to see how it turns out. I think another batik quilt is in my near future!!!
