Have you heard this before: You can’t mix batiks with modern prints.
I’m not a big fan of rules in quilting, beyond the basic ones of good solid construction. As far as artistry, anything goes in my book. Civil war reproductions, batiks, solids, popular modern designers, Kaffe Fasset, and fun novelty fabrics all have space on my shelves. If I like it, I buy it.
Recently, I came across a stack of coordinated batiks I purchased awhile ago. When I saw them, I knew they’d go perfectly with a Tula Pink print I scored at a discount a few years ago. So, for the last few days I’ve been slowly making a few flying geese here and there. It’s a lot calmer than I tend to go, but I really like it.
What do you think? Do you mix batiks in with other fabrics?
