  3. 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.

  14. 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 :)

  24. 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

  37. 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?

  43. 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.
