I love batiks because they are beautiful colors and not a pattern.

Hi!!!!! I love the sun morn!!!! I like batiks because the colors make movement that are more natural than just shapes....if that makes any sense!!!!! Thanks for the fun!!!!

teachpany said...

That yellow and blue are so pretty! I love Island Batiks, too. The colors are rich, and the dying process makes them have such depth of color. I can't wait to see all that Island Batiks is offering at Market.

When I read "Morn'N" I heard DDebbie Reynolds from "Singing in the Rain". ;) batiks are a favorite, of course, each and every one is OOAK. :)

The Quiltwhinny said...

The colors are so brilliant! Thanks!

Crickets Corner said...

Batiks are so rich and have so much depth of color that they are hard to resist. Now I have Debbie Reynolds stuck in my head.

Teresa in Music City said...

Why do I love batiks? That's easy! They are the sexiest fabrics in the world!!!!! If fabrics were movie stars, batiks would be Marilyn Monroe and John Wayne - megastars!!! When you use batiks in a quilt, you know you are going to end up with something beautiful, irregardless of the design :)

Lu Ann Brown said...

Love these vibrant batiks! But then again...I love batiks!

Sieberdesigns said...

KAREN said...

WOW ! Knock your socks off colors! I already have a project in my head!!

MJ said...

I love batiks because they are bright, happy and unique. I know how they are made so I especially love the labor and craft put into each design. I just LOVE batiks! Thanks for the giveaway.

I love batiks because the colors are so vibrant and they are two sided.

Good morning to you too. I just used up my stash of batiks on my "Batik Jewels" quilt so now I need to start buying again.

Jacque said...

Wow! I don't think I've ever used batiks, but I would love to give them a try!

Missy Shay said...

I love batiks because you can use them in so many different ways. My husband wants me to make a quilt for him he designed. He walked in while I was sorting my fabric and saw the Batiks and told me that was what he wanted me to use in his quilt - LOL

I LOVE Batiks. They are vibrant, or pale, and abstract. I LOVE that they are abstract.

Wacky Woman said...

I love batiks. they blend so well with so many things.

Kristy said...

I love batiks because from one cut of the fabric you can get so many different colors and patterns to use. I love using them for applique because they don't fray. I also love them because they are so beautiful! Thanks for being willing to part with some beautiful batiks! K-

Mystica said...

Batik is very common in my part of the world but it is totally different to what you are showing! very popular with the tourists though.

Sally said...

The colours first and foremost, followed by how much denser the fabric is. Which makes I find making patchwork more accurate.

thebutterflyquilter said...

Batiks my favorite fabric! Can already see a quilt design using these!

I love batiks because they have such depth of colour!

Sandra Visser said...

Both my husband and I love the looks of batiks. I love working with them and have quite a few in my stash. Once I finish a few more projects I plan on working some pieced hexies with them.

Gene Black said...

I love them because they are almost always rich in color and visual texture. There is also no "wrong side" so the odd scraps are a bit more versatile.

Connie said...

Beautiful fabrics and what a fun project you are working on Barb!

Jeanne Gwin said...

The colors, textures, visions and and and. It would be easier to tell you why I don't like Batiks rather then why. LOL that answer would be easy,,,,,,are you crazy, I love Batiks. Thanks for a beautiful giveaway.

Lin Marsh said...

Batiks are great because the colors are so vibrant, you can use either side, the don't ravel, I could go on.

LeAnne said...

Batiks are my favorite. Our local LQS carries over 1,000 bolts of batiks. I am so spoiled. I just ignore the rest of the store. There's so much variety with batiks. What's not to love about them?

moosecarol said...

I love batiks for their rich saturated colours, for their wonderful hand, finer weave, and having no right or wrong side.

KatieQ said...

I love batiks because one piece can have a lot of color variation and they have a feeling of depth. I also like that they don't fray.

Sally said...

Wow, those are gorgeous! I love batiks because you can use either side, the colors are vibrant and because they sing to me!! Just sew yummy

cathy s said...

beautiful bright colors and a scrappy look

Kathy MacKie said...

I love Batiks because they seem to go with anything...

Charlene McCullough said...

I love the blues and yellows. So bright, rich, and happy feeling, just like getting up on a summer morning. Batiks are one of my favorites because The dying process makes for beautiful, bright color, right from nature. I also love the texture and they're so easy to work with and make any project jump out at you. Don't feel bad about cutting the fabric. I'm sure the quarters will find a good , loving home. Thanks for sharing.

Sally said...

I use batiks almost exclusively as I love the texture and depth they add to art quilts. Love to put these into my next quilt!

Siouxzq64@gmail.com said...

I love the bright colors you get in the batiks, plus the fact that a piece of batik can have such lovely subtle changes that a block has so much more depth.

Lyn said...

I love batiks. They are so easy to sew with. Sure would love to win!

kc said...

I love the colors of batiks, the fact that they're so labor intensive, and the patterns are so varied and fun. They also sew like a dream, especially those from Island Batiks! You have definitely put together a bundle of sunshine! Thanks for sharing!

DebraKay Neiman said...

Wow love these colors. Before I retired, my fav scrubs were always batiks. crystalbluern at onlineok dot com

barbara woods said...

I love those, thanks for the chance

Debbie said...

I do love batiks! It's the colors and the mottled style and the non-boring repetition and the tight weave, etc. And, I love the colors of the ones you are giving away, Barb!

Batiks are so beautiful and fun to work with.

Pauline Perry said...

Batiks are so fabulous - the colours are gorgeous and each one is unique - the fabric comes with pattern but not a repeated pattern - each area is different. I hope I win these Tequila Sunset and how appropriate for this giveaway on Cinqo de Mayo.

PK Sews said...

I love the rich colors and exotic look of batiks, and I especially like these - they look like a gorgeous sunset. I love your cheerful Morn;n project too! Thanks for sharing!

Batiks are wonderful! They are so distinctive -- and there are so many color variations too!

Dovile G said...

Most what I love about batiks is their colors. They are just so gorgeous.

Robin (RsIslandCrafts) said...

I love making hexies with batiks. I like how the colors blend into the next color. It's also nice when the color goes all throughout and you can't tell the front from the back.

Batik prints remind me of sunshine and festivity, they stimulate a carefree enjoyable time.
