As a batik enthusiast, I was so excited when I saw our new collection Batik Paradise. This is such a fun collection! The prints are bright and tropical; the rich colors and saturated tones definitely catch the eye. Working with this collection makes me want to head to the beach.
Batik Paradise has a distinct island vibe–which is a welcome change during these dark winter months. The island-inspired motifs feature tropical flowers, trees, and sunsets. The designs and motifs are created using a wax resist process. This process is what gives batik fabrics the unusual textures and striking colors they are so famous for. All of our batik fabrics are quality, 100% quilting cotton. We source them from the same family-owned and operated batik company in Indonesia that we have worked with for the past ten years.
Need some great project ideas? Quilted bags are always useful to have around and fun to make. The All About Anna Bag Kit has divided front pockets to help keep you organized and is a great way to show off these batiks. Throw in your favorite book and a water bottle and off you go to somewhere fun.
If you’ve run out of vacation time and need to stay close to home, we have the perfect kit for you. The Stars & Wheels Quilt Kit is a bold and beautiful addition to any room in your house. Pair it with the Starburst Pillow Kit for an additional splash of color!
Batik Paradise pairs nicely with our latest Quilter’s Candy Novelty Print, Parrot’s Cove. Combine the two together for the ultimate tropical quilting combo!
The Storm at Sea Wall Hanging utilizes the blues, greens, and purples within the collection to give you a wall hanging reminiscent of a tropical storm. Plus, if you enjoy paper-piecing, it’s an absolute joy to make. What projects could you see the Batik Paradise collection being perfect for?
