I brought my entire stash of batik fabrics with me. I don't have many. Mainly the ones I have left over from making my house table runners.
Using Karen Neary's Maritime Beauty pattern, I'm going to make a Beauty out of these batiks. I have all the pieces cut out and the papers ready to paper piece the points. BUT, I have no light background fabric that will be used behind the spokes. Eek... I guess I better go fabric shopping on Monday.
Do you want to see my prototype Maritime Beauty that I completed last summer? I made this one out of old scrappy fabric because I signed up for the class at the last minute. I love how this scrappy beauty turned out and it stays at the cottage. I can't wait to see it again in April or May.
Check back in a couple of weeks, and I'll show you the the completed beauty top. I'll just machine quilt it when I get home.
