Many quilters love to create with batik fabrics. Their saturated colors, nature-inspired textures, and crisp hand give these coveted fabrics a special place in lots of stashes! Although nearly any quilt pattern can be made in batiks, for best results specific batik quilt patterns are the way to go. That’s why I’m excited to show you this week’s Friday Freebie, Summer Glare designed by Abigail Dolinger:
Aby’s design perfectly showcases her selection of peach/gold and aqua/teal fabrics from Wilmington Batiks. Bits of ivory batik bring sparkle to the quilt. With careful value (light vs. dark) placement, this quilt has a wonderful sense of depth. And peach stars pop out when the blocks and sashing are set together!
