Something I just discovered about batiks
I used a pale creamy yellow batik as the background for my Sunshine Pineapple quilt. When using batiks I never worry about right side/wrong side. In fact, most of the time you can't even tell. I cut nine big rectangles out of the fabric and appliqued the pineapples on them. I pieced the whole quilt, and never noticed a problem. Then when I was sandwiching the quilt and it was laying on my floor, I stepped away from it and realized that one of the nine rectangles was different from the rest. You don't notice it looking straight at the quilt, but at an angle, you can see it. It is either turned upside down from the rest or rotated 180 degrees. Either way, it's not being changed, and after it's quilted, I don't think it will be noticeable. But, I will certainly be careful in the future if I'm doing a similar batik background where many pieces of the same fabric are seamed together.
Have any of you experienced anything similar?
