Here are two pieces of linen I just bought thru ebay. The wide stripe is 3 yards and the other piece is 1 yard. I want to make more linen quilts and I think these fabrics will add an interesting touch.
I made this quilt last year with linen and batiks. The beige is the linen and the reds are batiks.
The back is regular cotton backing with the batik accents. I quilted the red batik with red on both sides and it give a shadow effect on the back.
