BATIKS Etcetera & Sew What Fabrics

Quilt with beautiful Batik.


Give Away is almost here!

Two more days before we draw four lucky winners of a Girl in the Garden pattern by Pat Sloan and Bigfork Bay Cotton Company.

We love these designs in batik and will kit just as they were made.  We are waiting for a couple more bolts to arrive.  The kits should ship mid March.

Want them all?  Sign up for our Wall hanging of the Month starting in April and get one kit a month for four months.  Sign up here.

Your responses have been so much fun.  So here’s a new question:

What is the most unusual flower in your garden?

Mine would have to be the Seven Sons tree.

It blooms in late August into September and has a delightful fragrance.

The pink flowers become fuchsia and a berry forms at the center that is a shiny purple.

Very interesting.



Beach Walk Block of the Month

At quilt market McKenna Ryan had her upcoming Block of the Month pinned to a display board.  It was so gorgeous I ordered all the fabric and patterns before they were even ready.  We have just enough info to set the prices and so we are taking pre orders for the Block of the Month.  We hope to start shipping in September depending on fabric deliveries.  The fabrics are printed cotton and batik combined.

This is a 9 month BOM.  It is 59″ x 73″.  Check it out!  We will also have the individual blocks available as separate kits.  We don’t have prices on those yet.  I can’t decide what my favorite block is.  Maybe the boat with the seagulls.  I can hear their calls and feel the soft beach air.

B-BOM!  Lots of BOM at market.  We found several Batik Block of the Months to start in the coming 6- 8 months.  Let us know which ones you like.

The McKenna Ryan BOM pictured above will start this fall.  It is a combination of McKenna’s new Hoffman prints and batik.  It is stunning.  You are looking at pieces just pinned to a board.  It doesn’t even have a name yet!

Another BOM from McKenna Ryan is Faith, Hope, and Love.  She redid this one in batik from previous printed cotton.  Graceful Continue reading
