    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.

    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.

    I looked up Batik Beauty on Google, and found many patterns. Are you talking about a specific pattern?

    (Quilt-T) The closest free block I could think of is the Fox and Geese block. One would have to replace the corner HSTs with a square in a sq or 2 flying geese going to opposite directions. Just an idea to work with.

    Oh, that is so pretty, and would look great in purples. For me, it has too many flying geese. I love the look, but not the doing. I can never get any 2 the same size no matter what way I make them.

    I have the book with the pattern. From the replies I have gotten, I am thinking this may be too difficult for me at this time. Thanks to everyone for your input. Yolanda

    You can do it. Check our Youtube.com for flying geese quilt patterns and you will get a multitude of shows that will help you. This quilt in purples will be magnificient. Go for it.

    Here are a couple of great flying geese tutorials. I really like the second one best:

    It would be beautiful in purples, pinks or any color or combination. Even scrappies would be beautiful too.
