    What to do?

    I just finished (all but the last border). I was going through all my fabric I have left to decide what to start next. Everything is dark except for some batik fat quarters. You would think that with such a dreary winter I would have bought something cheerful. Anyone have any ideas what quilt pattern to use for the batik fat quarters. I have about 20 fat quarters, all different colors.

    A pic would be most useful.

      An X Block was posted in the Show and Tell section. It looks really great.

        Almost any pattern looks great in batiks. I really like batiks set off by some black. Several of Jenny's tutorials would look great in batiks - a square in a square, phoebe's flower box, updated coin, silly goose (if you add white or black).

            I say pick a shape. That is my motto right now. lol

            pyramid
            square
            rectangle
            circle
            wedge
            tumbler
            dresden
            stars

            I'm not into stars and I said this before that I don't like pointy things. lol I love that other people make them but not for me right now

              I'm going to go out of the box, but wouldn't this be cool in batiks with a black as the one that turns over?

                What's your favorite block or blocks? I think any block you choose would look good in batiks.
                In fact I think any quilt pattern you could name would looks good in batiks.
                Can you tell I like batik fabric ??

                  Thanks everyone. I'll have to lay out my batiks to show the colors.

                      This is one I found online, that I've saved for my to do list. It would look pretty with 10 different color pairs. I think your fat quarters would be enough. Jenny's Drunkards path ll tutorial would work. You'd have to buy more for background fabric and borders of course.
