How to choose batiks for quilting – fabric choices for quilting

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!



Tarnya is Quilting Focus' webmaster and a beginner quilter who hasn’t ventured much outside pre-cuts and quilting in the ditch. She is excited by modern short cut quilting techniques which makes quilting so much more achievable for those who are quite short on time. She enjoys making quilts for her children who she says do not notice mistakes and feel loved by what she makes. "I appreciate how learning and improving my quilting, cross pollinates into other creative areas of my life: for example colour, balance, proportion are important to quilting, but they are also important to web design."
