Shifts of Nature

Choose deep, rich batiks in inviting earth tones for a wall hanging with natural style. Play with a subtle shift of browns to provide a framework and make setting triangles stand out. Fabrics are from assorted Artisan Batiks collections, including Terrace, Natural Formations, and Elementals, by Lunn Studios for Robert Kaufman Fabrics.
