Batik fabrics are a form of fabric artwork, and it's usually made on textiles, which relies heavily on patterns and masking dyes and inks.

 

The batik is a technique for decorating textiles, by which parts of the material that are not to be colored are covered in molten wax. The wax prevents the fabric from absorbing the dye during the decorating process, which is how there can be more than one vibrant color showing on the material. 

 

The word batik is of Indonesian origin and is related to a Malay word for dot or point, "titik" and the Javanese word "amba," meaning" to write."

 

Can you mix Bali fabrics with traditional cotton fabric prints? 

 

There is an interesting debate if you can mix the two different fabrics. My option is simple; sometimes, it works to combine the two different types, and sometimes it doesn't. It depends on the pattern and fabric print textures. 

 

Some people state it's hard, "no." Let's have a friendly debate on Facebook soon about the topic. 

 

Here are my projects ideas:

 

  • Couch Quilt using bright Bali fabrics
  • Autumn Color Table Runner or known as a Table Topper
  • Boomerang Quilt Kit (It's insanely beautiful in the blue colorway!) 

 

When you walk into the Norton House, you'll quickly notice we have an entire room full of watercolor Bali fabrics. Beckie and I LOVE Bali fabrics and the natural movement the material makes. 

  

What could you make for a loved one to enjoy colorful watercolor fabrics? 

  

The Fine Print: 

 Watercolor Bali & Batik Projects in October - Quilting your Legacy Monthly Challenge

You must show your progress. Start with taking a photo of the fabric/ pattern with what you're going to create.  

1/2 points if you've started a project and are inspired or re-motivated to finish. But again, we must see where you're at this moment, then at the end of the month, the second photo of your finished project.

The project must have at least 75% of Batik fabrics in the project. 

 

Let's see the progress! Start, middle, and end of the project.

 

What to do next: 

Day 1-10 Declare of the Facebook Group, "I'm In" if you're going to participate months challenge. 

 

Day 2-30 Take a photo or write text with your tentative idea (or ideas) of what you're going to create.

 

Day 31 (or sooner) - Show off what you created within the guidelines by posting a photo.

 

Set your intentions now. The start to finish process is everything. Let's all encourage each other and enjoy the quilting adventure! 

 

What will you create for one or more of your favorite people? 

 

Happy Quilting your Legacy!

 

What do to next:

Go to Facebook and state, "I'm in!". Perhaps add a photo of the pattern, fabrics are chosen, or just text is fine too. 

 

See you on the Facebook Quilting your Legacy Monthly Challenge page.
