A Stunning Batik

Charm Patch Quilt


Simple alternating quilt block with multiple layout options.

Combining lots of beautiful batiks can be challenging to balance both colors and patterns. Blending multiple colors harmoniously can be very personal when we gravitate toward colors we love. When you use your ‘happy colors’ you’ll get the best results. But there are a few rules to keep everything in order for a magnificent quilt design.


Select Focal Fabrics 

Bundles of batiks are beautiful together. But without the right mix you may end up with a very monochromatic quilt with little visual interest.

Choose Contrast  


While you’ve probably seen and admired contrasts in a quilt, you may not realize how important an accent fabric can be. The best accent fabric choices will include some of your focal colors. This creates a harmonious color scheme that looks great together and sets a stunning quilt apart from the rest.

Add Background 


Quilt backgrounds are an important design element in any quilt. Selecting the perfect batik background fabrics will create balance in your final quilt design.
