Flannel Batiks - Moonlight Textures
by Textile Creations Inc.
We are excited to introduce a selection of gorgeous colorful flannel batiks from Textile Creations Inc. These fabrics are dyed and produced in the same way as regular batiks except the material is a thicker soft cotton flannel which makes it ideal for clothing. This is perfect to make some comfy pajamas as a Christmas gift for your loved ones or some colorful aprons. See below for some patterns and ideas.
Batik Textiles has a unique collection of batiks called Bali SunPrints™. Making batiks involves creating an intricate stamp or chop design out of thin copper strips which are then bended to form the shapes and designs that give batiks their unique look. The copper stamp process is a skilled artisanal craft and very time consuming. With this Bali SunPrints™ collection, the design of leaves is done by just exposing the dyed fabric to the Bali noon-day sun, so what you see is the shadow of the local leaves and flora placed on top of the fabric which gives it a soft, shadowed effect.
The Artist’s Palette collection is a beautiful set of colored blender fabric with a soft gentle leaf design in front that is not very contrasting which lets it blend in nicely with other colors and palettes. The pictures above are of the actual fabric taken in our shop and corrected for the best color accuracy.
We are thrilled to feature Batik Textiles Moose Junction complete collection of fabrics. These beautiful colors showing earth tones of browns, greens and blues evoke the great outdoors of the Pacific Northwest. The stamp designs show a variety of scenes and wildlife such as fish, eagles, animal-tracks, mountains, streams, and of course moose!
Batik Textiles Puffin Ridge collection of fabrics can be thought of an extension and companion to the Moose Junction collection of fabrics featured above. Both collections feature similar batik stamps with Puffin Ridge focusing more on cream, blues, greens, and red backgrounds. We are pleased to offer the complete collection for your next quilt project.
We have received delivery of colorful fabrics from Batik Textiles from their Rainbow Sherbet collection designed by CI Kelly Grant. At Fall 2019 Quilt Market in Houston, we saw this collection on display. We were very impressed by the bright color palette and unique pinwheel, and quilt-block stamp patterns on the fabrics. We enjoyed how well the fabrics combined together in many different quilts on display. Click below for a link to more information, and to purchase the Basket of Rainbows featured quilt kit for this collection.
The Berry Tart collection features similar designs and bright colors as the Rainbow Sherbet collection. These two collections can be viewed as companions and extensions of one another. The bright colors and delightful designs are a unique addition for your quilt project.
Featured Quilt Kits
This is a signature collection by Kathy Engle for Deb Tucker’s Studio 180 Design. It features a rich blue-green color palette that is so versatile for many different types of projects and for boys quilts as well.
Our initial debut in May of River Valley was so popular we quickly sold out of several of the fabrics. Now our second shipment of this collection has arrived in the shop and all of the fabrics in this collection are back in stock. But hurry soon to get your fabrics as Island Batik is no longer re-printing this collection, so once we are sold out of this shipment, it is gone forever! (We are now permanently sold out of all precuts) Click on any of the gorgeous quilt designs above by Studio 180 to order a complete kit to make your own stunning quilt for your home or someone special.
Bali Tropical Escape
We are pleased to carry new collections of batiks from Benartex featuring their triple-dyed Bali Batik fabrics. Typically batik fabrics are hand-dyed twice during the artisan process – once to set the color of the pattern that will be created by the copper stamping, and a second time to set the color of the background around the stamp pattern. Benartex’s Triple-Dyed Bali Batiks feature a third dye step to create even more deep, saturated and variegated colors in the fabric. You will notice at the rich colorful hues in the finished product.
The Bali Splash collection features a variety of cool sea tropical blues and turquoise colors with fish, dolphins, sharks and bubbles. These fabrics will be an excellent addition to your next quilt project.
The Bali Eden collection features some unique deep jeweled ombre batiks in addition to flower and leaves designs.
River Run Collection
Hoffman’s River Run is a gorgeous collection of 26 batik fabrics by Dana Michelle of Wildfire Designs Alaska. We will have the entire collection available for purchase in early June along with six patterns featuring wildlife scenes made from the fabrics in this collection. Check back soon for more details and a project page featuring the amazing quilts you can make from this fabric.
Palette of the Season
With three releases throughout the year, Hoffman’s Palette of the Season program features 12 hand-picked coordinated fabrics from their extensive 1895 collection with a featured free pattern to make a beautiful project. The next release in this exciting series takes us on an adventure to Wine Country! There we can enjoy tasting flights of purples, greens, blues, and tan colors that bring our imagination to the serene beauty of a hillside vineyard…where life is enjoyed one leisurely sip at a time.
Tonga - Wish
The soft pastel colors of this new batik collection from Timeless Treasures called Tonga Wish will be ideal for your Spring quilt or any project that is better suited for a more relaxed, softer, less contrasting color palette. This is a great example that batiks are not all bright and saturated and come in lighter colors as well. There are 20 fabrics in this collection which we have already received shipment. These are now on sale on our Etsy store and are quite popular

Although the sea turtles are already sold out because of their popularity, we hope to have more back in stock shortly.
