Thread: Has anyone ever done a D9P in Batik? I have some batik fabric and wanted to see what it would look like to do the D9P. Possibly for a baby Quilt..?

    Not sure how it would look for a baby quilt but was curious how the batik would look in a D9P. I have tried searching on here but couldn't find one.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)

    Thanks in Advance,
    Angie

    Never done D9P but I like all quilts done in batiks. I don't see why they wouldn't work.

    I got some batik to makes some caps for a 11 year old girl that has Luekemia and had left over fabric. Then I had some that I didn't want to mix with regular fabric. I cut them into squares and thought this morning as I was laying in bed....hmmmm how would that look?


    Forgot to mention I've never done a D9P. ;)

    That's a great idea. It will look beautiful. Why not?

    My friend did one in the bali pops strips and it was gorgeous. The squares are very small though.

    I would just plan it out and do one block and see how you feel. I think that it would be fab but that is just me I love batiks. that is actually mostly what I buy now. Unless I am making a quilt for someone specifically.

    Someone posted a block yesterday done in only two colors and one a pastel batik. It was lovely.

    I found it. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-129466-1.htm

    Why not? Have you ever seen anything in batik that isn't beautiful. Go for it. Can wait to see it done.

    I'd think batiks would be beautiful in any design!

    Nancy from North Carolina gave a tutorial on a D9P in batiks a little while back. It was gorgeous. Sorry, I don't have the link.

    I discovered D9P only yesterday morning and spent the rest of the day sewing them. I have batik charm squares and wanted to practice first. Batik will be beautiful. Blocks yesterday were completely random and batik will be too.

    I saw that picture yesterday and it was lovely. Do you think it would look okay with each block being a different batik fabric?
