    A friend of mine travels to Liberia and brought back these wonderful batiks - which of course I made a quilt from, not that one has to do that, the batiks are fine on their own.

    Fantastic fabrics, you've really made them tell a story by making them into a quilt.

    Beautifully done.
    And that background fabric with the quilting is so.......earthy.
    It's perfect!

    THEY'RE BEAUTIFUL. HOW DO YOU CLEAN THEM? ARE THEY WASHABLE OR DRY CLEANABLE OR JUST VACUUM OFF ANY DUST.

    You can wash them. I pre- washed the batik to be sure the dye was set.
