Some fabrics are designed to be showcased in a quilt, while other fabrics, like Batiks, are designed to showcase the quilt. With their intense color, shading, and variance, Batiks lend themselves to be blended and pieced into masterpiece quilts. We have several new kits to either start or feed your Batik addiction.
Below are some of my favorite kits from our new summer Batiks!
The Storm at Sea kit is a beautiful wall hanging that uses foundation piecing. The different shades of blue give the illusion that there is curved piecing, but not so. This little beauty has been one of our favorite projects here at Connecting Threads for years. Once you’ve put it all together, you will see why!
Play with colors and shading of Batiks with the Fabric Dance kit, designed by another Batik lover, Ann Lauer. Going from soft spring green, to deep blue, this quilt blends colors wonderfully. Looking at it, I’m reminded of the variations of colors you see in the Caribbean waters.
For those of you who prefer to keep your Batik love on solid ground, we have the Cabin in the Garden Quilt kit that combines the best colors of the garden with green walking paths. Not to mention the bursts of radiant purple blooms.
Whatever your tastes may be, we hope you will browse our collection of new Batik kits and let your imagination run wild. We are really excited about the New Summer Batik Sampler. It is so bright and fun. If you love it as much as we do, don’t wait. These prints are limited edition, and once they’re gone, they’re gone for good.
