Batiks!





Have spent most of the day in the basement going through my batiks - they were really in need of some sorting out. I think it's hard to know how to group them - so many have multiple colors and look so good with lots of other pieces. I have a few that I don't know where in the heck to ever use them and some of those I will just get rid of. There are some very pretty ones down there for sure. I never buy very big pieces - usually no more than a half yard unless I know I need more for borders, etc. My love is scrappy quilts - the more different fabrics I have in a quilt the better I like it so I don't use large amounts of the same fabric. So, right now my basement "studio" is in a bigger mess than usual. I took some pictures and will post a few. Still have several boxes to go through but decided to give it up for today. By the way, just to the right edge of the top picture is the ribbon with the dogwood blossom that my quilt "Blooms in the Night" wore home from Paducah in 1992! (Click to enlarge)

Love what I can see of your Blooms in the Night quilt. Look at all the batiks! What a wonderful large studio you have.
