Wonderful Batik Fabrics

I love all batik fabrics!  The colors are so rich, I just can't resist them!

I use mostly multi-colored batiks in my baskets.  The pattern is not as important as the colors!  I usually use small to medium batik motifs, since they seem to have great color depth.  I love to add a little bit of a gorgeous monotone or two tone batik to my baskets to make colors pop!

I love this Autumn batik, with the big bold floral pattern.   I made this little itty bitty basket using left overs from a quilt border.  I love the bold colors with all the different shades of brown and tan.  The pattern is lost in the basket, but the colors are still amazing. 

I used this bold batik as the base of this basket, so that the contrast brings out the colors in both batiks.  Love it!


The lovely tan batik below has so many rich colors, that it can stand on it's own!
But I added a blue base to make the bottom and inside of the basket pop! 

Lions and Tigers and Bears oh my! 
(Yes, this fabric had cheetahs and leopards too.)
I finally found a gorgeous animal print fabric!
It has many many colors and rich shades!
Ahhh, there wasn't even a yard left! 

I added a black contrast strip and a dark base
to make the colors pop in the upper fabric.

The base is a wonderful two-tone batik with a tiger stripe motif.
