I love Batiks! I especially love the one to two-tones with the delicate, nature-stamped designs. The multi-colored, tie-dyed ones give you a variety of possibilities just by where you cut on the fabric. The single colored Batiks with dye stripes, bubbles or swirls provide your quilts with light, shade and depth without having to create it with different pieces. Because of the special dying and stamping process performed by skilled artisans in Java, Indonesia, each cut of fabric becomes its own piece of artwork.
Batiks have been very popular for use in art and landscape quilts, but more and more people are using them in traditional pieced quilts. I love this! The vibrant and tonal quality of the fabrics, create something new and fresh with a very traditional feel. Our Check Out the Stars Twin Quilt Kit is a perfect example of this.
I’m curious to know, do you like the artistic quilts that form together to create beautiful landscapes, or do you like to see Batiks shown in more traditional quilts?
