Princess Mirah Batiks

Sheila is an interior designer with a keen sense of style and color. When browsing for fabrics for her Modern Robe, she was drawn to a luscious multicolor Princess Mirah Batik with a Berry Blue base.  The finished robe is both modern and elegant.

For the belt we picked out a graphic retro print in the Sherbet Pips line by Aneela Hoey for Moda Fabrics.  The grey-cherry print complemented the square design and the orange-red highlights in the batik.  We love the belt as much as the robe!

Princess Mirah introduced quilters in America to hand made Balinese batiks. It was her genius and style that brought a sense of vibrancy to the industry.  As you can see for yourself, the matchless blend of colors, the intricate and vivid sense of rhythm in her designs brings delight to quilters and to anyone in touch with her fabrics.  The crisp batiks are a delight to sew with.
