Nimes Mosaic Batik in Rust Orange

I love the way this fabric turned out, but lining up the motifs was very time consuming. A fat quarter took over an hour just to wax.....Yikes.

I planned for this to dye dark red, but the batik gods said "terracotta orange", so there you go. This rusty orange makes me think of late summer, when my tomatoes are ripening and the rudbeckia, echinacea and salvia are thriving in the high heat and humidity.

I'm thinking I'll try this motif in navy blue and white next. Any other colorways folks want to see?

Check out my store to purchase a swatch of this pattern.
