    I don't think I've ever seen a batik quite like this. I think it's lovely... but not being a "batik expert", I'd like to get other opinions before I order it.

    What do you think? Do you like it? Which of the colors in it would you be most likely to try to bring out with coordinating fabrics? The mauve, or the lavender-blue, or the green?

    I love it! I think I would lean toward lavender and green but you could incorporate mauve as well.

    That is gorgeous. I'm thinking lavender and green as well. I may need a few yards of this.

    ooooh, I really like that. I have come to really love batiks. I would go with your favorite color, then a little of the others also.

    It's not on the market yet. It is part of a future group by Timeless Treasures, due to come out in late May.

    I have to make up my mind about this by tomorrow so that I can get my order placed before the April 1st price increase.

    That is a beauty! I just love batiks...I marvel at the beautiful colors and patterns. I also would pull in lavender and green...and maybe a bit of pale yellow also. I'll have to keep my eyes open for this one. Thanks for the advance peek.

    well in the sample the mauve is definitely popping out...

    and then i see the green...

    the lavender-blue is there but not so much in the sample...
    so if the whole fabric exudes the same tonal qualities i would pull the lav-blu...but i would have to see a larger swatch

    and even tho i am one who is not "into" batiks...i luv this fabric...its beautiful!

    I love batiks and use a lot of them.. I would like this for a sampler quilt, but in more of a supporting than starring role.
    I would pull all of the colors out and mix them all up in blocks.. then use this for a border also.. and possibly the back.. it would also make a wonderful summer sundress.. yep.. I'd definitely buy this.

    Beautiful! I would go with the green and mauve. It almost looks like lavender on my computer. I think it would be beautiful in a quilt!

    I use this piece as the focus fabric and try to bring in all of the other colors.

    I'm partial to the greens, perhaps with mauve.

    Why not all of them then your customers can do it their. If you just go with one or two there are going to be people asking for the colors you didn't get. I don't usually buy anything with flowers only but I love this and can see it with each and combinations.
