Anthology Batik

Have you met Anthology Batiks yet?

The company has been in the ready made industry for years so they know fabric and deadlines.  Their batik are gorgeous and have a nice hand (how it feels in the hand).

Their jelly rolls are boxed with two each of 20 different batik for a total of 40 – 2.5″ strips.  Yummy colors.  Only a portion of the bolts on order are here but get the jelly rolls while you can.

Great colors!



Brrrrrrr – warm fabrics needed!

It was only 12 degrees when we got home to our mountain side home from the shop.  Tonight I plan to cuddle under a flannel quilt and watch a movie with DH.  It made me think of what warm fabrics we have at the shop.  I’m allergic to wool, mohair, feathers – all that warm stuff.  Hand me layers of cotton!

I love our flannels.  We have gorgeous batik/hand dyed flannels and great printed flannels, too.  This Christmas my two nephews received batik flannel quilts that my sister commissioned a staff member to make.  I got to pick fabrics – so much fun!

We used my reversible quilt pattern called Quickest Quick Step Quilt.  It sews and quilts at the same time.  Easy peasy!

My nephews are so tall that we used the twin size.  That way they can use them as big lap quilts or on a bed.  So warm.  You can tell one likes warm colors and one likes cool colors.  They both look great – quilts and nephews!

Fat Quarter Packs

I just love picking fat quarter packs for the shop.  It helps that we get so many different batik to choose from.  Unlike most fat quarter packs available, we choose across the many brands of Indonesian batik we offer.  This adds to the excitement of the pack and makes the fabrics not “too same”.  Usually our packs are in groups of 13 or 20 fat quarters.

I picked a few recently and the great folks at Batiks Etc are trying to catch up.  We are in the middle of our pre inventory sale so tasks like this are put aside for now.  Enjoy these new ones and click on a picture to see more.  Yummy!

Is there a color group or combo you have been looking for?  I’d love the challenge!
