Whirlpools – Blue is an extra wide backing fabric from Wilmington Batik. It is a blue on blue print with concentric circles. The pattern is clear but the monochromatic color palette keeps it from being too busy. The blue has a light but bright blue feel with some gentle hints of purple and sky blue in places. Therefore, this backing fabric will match well with a variety of blues and some purples in quilt tops. Wilmington Fabrics printed these to look like batiks so it pairs well with batik quilts. This means the texture of the fabric is more to a standard cotton backing rather than a slightly stiffer batik.
