New Fabric Features! Early Autumn Edition

Our favorite thing about Autumn isn’t all the delicious pumpkin spice treats, football games, hayrides or cute decor (although we love all of those things). Our favorite part about Autumn is all the new fabric collections that are pouring through our doors! Take a look at some of the beautiful lines below and be inspired! 🙂

Every year as the days get shorter, a new star shows up to signal the arrival of fall. Fomalhaut, also known as the lonely star of Autumn, is so far away that the starlight we’ll enjoy this fall had to start its journey to Earth way back in 1991! Thank goodness that the Autumn Stars in today’s new quilt can be completed in just a few minutes!

This quilt is classically eye catching and oh, so easy! Here are the details:

Batik Boutique in Hamilton!

Batik Boutique in Hamilton!

Exciting things are happening here in Hamilton!  It’s starting to look and feel like spring, the sun is shining (most of the time) and Downtown Hamilton is looking better than ever!  Recently, our new quilt shop opened, called the Batik Boutique.   That’s right, we’ve filled an entire shop with beautiful batiks!!

 

Batik is a special dying process for fabrics, where wax is used to resist the dye, creating a beautiful pattern and texture.  We’ve found that when a customer loves batiks, she really LOVES batiks.  So, now you’ve got one special spot to be surrounded by all of your favorite batiks!

Here’s a little tour of our Batik Boutique!

Look at how rich and beautiful this batik chevron quilt is!  Wow, we love those deep navy fabrics!  It has so much depth and movement, which is definitely an advantage to working with batiks.

Batiks can be so fun when they are paired with a black solid fabric!

It’s amazing what can be done with this batik technique!  Look at these patriotic prints that add yet another layer of interest to these fabrics!

Of course, we also have some fantastic precuts of your favorite Batik fabrics!

I especially love batiks that are bright and cheery like these ones!  We have every color of the rainbow!  This is a great way to add a little extra dimension and interest to your quilt instead of using a solid fabric.
