Watching this video helped me to understand how to make fabric choices for quilting. In the video on how to choose batiks for quilting by Cheryl Brown, we watch how she chooses her fabric for an example small project.
Thanks to Martingale
Giving her reasoning why she included or excluded a fabric based on how its colour and how it interacted with her main fabric I found helpful. Some of this is personal preference but it is good to have some guidelines to help us decide.
I recently started a project with batiks in cool colours: green blue and purple. I love batiks now, and now I have a few pieces left over from this current project I can see me building my batik stash!
