Whirlpools – Light Purple is an extra wide backing fabric from Wilmington Batik. It is a purple and blue print with concentric circles. The pattern is clear but the monochromatic color palette keeps it from being too busy. The purple has a light but bright feel with some gentle hints of pink and a darker blue in places. Therefore, this backing fabric will match well with a variety of purples and some blues 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.
