2016 BOM fabric swatch sneak peak
I’m starting to plan the 2016 BOM quilt pattern. I’ve got a layout planned out and am in the process of selecting fabrics. One of the fabric lines I’m considering is from Majestic Batiks, which makes hand-crafted batiks using Indonesia’s centuries-old method of hand dyeing fabric.
There is a beautiful selection of fabrics available, but these are the swatches above are the ones I’m zoning in on. Without giving too much away, next year’s quilt will be king sized again, but it will be assembled in rows, instead of the medallion quilt style the 2015 and 2014 BOMs are designed in. But that doesn’t mean the rows will be a simple construction. Each block will be a different size and they will fit together to form a two-foot tall row.
The blocks will all be various star designs with the lighter fabrics making up the stars and the dark blue as the background, creating a look of stars twinkling in the sky.
Alright, now it is time for you to give me your feedback. What do you think of the fabric swatches above? Would you be likely to make a quilt from these fabrics? And would you be interested in a kit of these fabrics? Tell me what you think in the comments! I can’t wait to see what you have to say.
