    batik applique

    I have a pile of these.I need to pick a background -then my grand daughter will pick the layout for these.This will be very different from anything I have done yet.They make a random trail on a neutral background-a large block.

    I would use a very light colored batik for the background. Since you have black in some of them, I would be afraid some of the pieces would fade into the background.

    I am thinking black would make these really stand out. Have to post it once finished.

    Beautiful fabrics....the colour palette looks fantastic....I will watch with great interest (and may I say...It looks like a tricky one).

    Great shapes and fabrics!!! I would think you would need to audition several fabrics for this task. I am inclined to think of a dove grey, a greyish mild green or a light beige. Perhaps an old rose even. I want to see what you do with this. Do all the backgrounds need to be the same? Some of those shapes would do really well on black.

    These look a lot like ones in a Piece o Cake design that I made. I used a neutral background by Mark Lipinski's Home. Most of mine were pink and purple, so I used a very pale lilac.

    Looks wonderful! Did you cut all those out, or did you purchase them that way?
