On Ringo Lake -- Part 1 -- which fabrics?

On Ringo Lake Mystery from Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville got started with part 1 last Friday...are you doing it?

I'm not sure if I want to use quilting cottons or batiks. So I experimented.

What do you think?

Quilting Cottons (do you remember the projects I did using "Elementary" ...I found that stash and came up with some great 'aqua'  and 'neutral' pieces and a few others from my stash)

My own design: Charmed Network

adapted from Tricia Cribbs' Strips Ahoy:

And now for the batiks --I'm using Island Batik fabrics specifically (at least seen here):

I think either would look great.  Hmmm...maybe wait for Part 2 to make a final decision :-) Or ...just do both?

Linking up here.


  1. Do both. OR mix and match. Nothing wrong with mixing batiques and cottons!

  2. I would say mix them up. Do a bit of both and get REALLY scrappy.

  3. I agree with the others. Mix them all up. It will really give your finished quilt some sparkle. More is always better when picking quilt fabrics!

  4. ALL Cotton for ME! LOL on doing Both. Making that many Flying geese would make a person Crazy!!! Fun Colors, sew on!
