Three fabrics plus big blocks will have you bouncing for joy when you stitch up this graphically appealing 51" x 75" quilt. Pictured quilt is made with Island Batik's Icicle line. #Bounce #sew #quilt #islandbatiks
Ah, no big surprise, but these are my favorite. I LOVE batiks for many reasons: the high thread count means the fabric is super stable (no stretching or pulling out of shape, no heavy fraying of seams), the rich color that (for the most part) is the same on the front AND the back, the wonderful variety of color and print, and the fact that MOST batiks are just a FEW inches longer, which means you can usually squeeze just a bit more from each strip.
You've got your pattern. You've selected a color scheme or a theme. Now it's time to hit the quilt shop or visit your stash and find the perfect fabrics for that perfect project. Woohoo! Or ugh..... Reactions vary. Some LOVE selecting fabrics. Others (many many folks) find the wealth of options intimidating. Let's look at some general options and weigh in on each: type of fabric, print (traditional, novelty, themed),directional, non-directional, and scale.
