Amazing Show & Tell: Fresh Batiks® by Clothworks!

Toni's Whirlpool batik wallhanging

Our resident quilting queen and sample room extraordinaire, the talented Toni B., recently went on a quilting retreat and came back with some beautiful batik goodies to share.  Working in the Clothworks sample room and warehouse is kind of like being a kid in a candy store for a quilter and fabric lover. So many temptations every where you turn.  Especially those beautiful Fresh Batiks® Minerals and Botanica prints, offered in bold, bright colors with a soft hand, to boot!  Toni B. had taken a class from a local quilter, Eda Lee Haas, and created the wall-hanging (perfectly square matched to the grid) shown above in the pic.  The technique was a quilt-as-you-go, called the Whirlpool.  What a wonderful  use of Fresh Batiks®Minerals, with a few print designs thrown in for interest.  This design reminds me of a color wheel- so bright and cheery- with lots of movement for the eyes.

Collage Batik Bag

The second fun show & tell project is from a pattern called The Mondo Bag by Quiltsmart.  Toni B. created this fun, multi-color harlequin patchwork using various patterns and colors in the Fresh Batiks® Botanica line.  Find out more info about the Quiltsmart Mondo Bag here.

Thank you Toni B for sharing these lovely, inspiring projects with us.
