Here at Clothworks, we’ve been super excited over the release of Fresh Batiks, our first collection of batik fabrics. If you were lucky enough to attend Quilt Market a few weeks ago in Houston, I’m sure you were able to see some darling samples in the Clothworks booth made with these batiks. With all of these luscious designs coming in an array of gorgeous, inspiring colors….my head has been spinning with unlimited ideas on what I’d like to make with Fresh Batiks. So much so…I’m just a little dizzy!!!
Good thing that Quiltmaker Magazine has come to the rescue and will be featuring a nifty project using this stack of batik beauties pictured above. Word on the street is that these Botanica Batiks will be used in a block that will be featured in Quilts from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Magazine, Spring 2014 edition. And I’ll let you in on another secret. I hear that the talented ladies at Sassafras Lane Designs have a part in this block design. But shhhhh…you didn’t hear that from me. These batiks have been shipped off in the post today and what beautiful block becomes of them, it’s a mystery for now. Do you think you can wait until March 4, 2014 when the magazine hits the news stands?
