We are about to order a set of batiks to use as a kit in our upcoming projects. We have narrowed the possible focus fabric batiks to two, and we want to know which you like best.

We really want to involve our patrons in our choices of fabrics, so we hope that each of you votes on which batik you like best. We will order these later in the week, so vote asap!!

It's neck and neck!

Yeah Cindy, it is hard to choose!! I love them both too, that is why I have put it to a poll of our patrons. Help us out in choosing!!

By the way, Milica was asking for batiks, so I wanted to order some. However, not having ever made a batik quilt, I asked Milica to look over the manufacturers site and help us choose a few. She was very helpful and picked out these two with quite a few others. Thanks Milica!!

This is something we really hope to do more in the future. As part of our philosophy as a quilting community, we want to let our patrons help choose our fabrics, whenever possible. Please feel free to make suggestions and requests!!

I am with Cindy on this. I vote for "c". Truthfully, I can't make up my mind; I like the colors better in the first swatch, but I prefer the subtleness of the second. I think it would blend better. How's this? Can you get the second fabric in the first color wave? I'm ducking, Jess! LOL I always try to be helpful, you know that.

I voted for the soft pink but after looking at both of them for a while I think I like the jewel one better. :o

Oh boy, hard choices. One my very first glance, I liked the jewels the best. I looked longer and even though I like the softer green one, I still perfer the jewels. The green one kind of makes me wosey. LOL

i like the soft one best too, BUT something was mentioned in the first post to vote on the one you liked as a "focus" fabric and quite frankly, from a focal standpoint, the jewel stands out more, which is why i ultimately voted for the jewel batik.  make sense?

I agree with you, Cindy - though I like both fabrics, the first one appealed more, likely because I like saturated, clear, bright colours best.

Well, I haven't ordered them yet. I am finalizing some selections, but I may not have either of these in there. I found some cool batiks somewhere else that look like a better deal... we will see and I will post pics as soon as I order them.

Wooohoooooooo :):) I like the sound of that Jess :):)

Can I ask a question about the Floragraphics please Jess. I see you are making kits up for the Retreat Quilt, but I don't see them as an option to buy any other way. Will you be putting them on the site to buy by the yard also ?

Yes, as soon as they arrive in the store I will do that. I just don't want folks purchasing the yardage on pre-order. I will call them on Monday and see when they should arrive... I am getting VERY anxious!
