    Batik Beauty

    Has anyone of the Board made the "Batik Beauty"? I would love to see your interpretation of this pattern. I want to do one for my DGD (pictured here in my avatar) in purple batiks. Thank you. Yolanda Wood River

    Looked up the "Batik Beauty" pattern and it's very pretty. I think it would be just as stunning in purples.

    None of the "Batik Beauty" quilts shown in my "Google" search are the pattern that I have. I will scan the photo and post it later. Y

    I apologize. The book is called Batik Beauties by Laurie J. Shifrin. The quilt pattern is Mystique Beauty shown below.

    I love the pattern. And yes it would be fab in purple. I am going to be a new auntie again and I am hoping my brothers baby is a girl and my sil will let me do the baby bedding in purple batiks but I doubt it. I will just have to make an extra baby quilt in purple batiks for the baby if it is a girl. (Oh how I want it to be. I have sooooo many ideas for the baby quilt. Think i will start in on it. ) my dd who is 4 1/2 is all about purples and I am making her a bed quilt in purple batiks. Purple batiks is our favorite color!!!!! Now to get back to sewing.
    Is it a pieced border? It looks like thin piano keys.
    when life gets you down go and talk with a little kid. They will help you work out even the worst problems with their simple logic.

    The pattern calls for a batik stripe fabric. But certainly a piano key border would work as well. Y

    Yes, purples would be just fine for that pattern. Make sure you get enough tonal variation.
