While it may be winter here in Hamilton, once you step into our Batik Boutique you will be transported to a tropical island filled with gorgeous hand-dyed fabrics!

Batik Boutique at Missouri Star Quilt Co

Batik fabric is created using a unique dyeing process in which wax is used to resist the dye. Where the wax is placed results in the design on the fabric, which can then be repeated to create even more intricate designs.

Considering that most batiks are manufactured in Indonesia, our shop was designed and decorated accordingly. From the blue stamped concrete, to the pebbled checkout counter and all of the island themed decor, no detail was left out!

Our Batiks shop has had quite the history! It was a bicycle shop near the turn of the 20th Century, until it was sold and converted into a barbershop, with a corner devoted to the town watchmaker and watchsmith. The shop then became a doctor’s office and later turned into a 2nd hand store before Missouri Star bought the building.

All Stars Quilt

There’s a pretty big football game this week. Best of the season, they say. And while I do enjoy a touchdown or two, those yards of turf just can’t compare to a yard of brand new quilting fabric! So while those football stars are racing to the endzone, I’ll be stitchin’ up a team of my own all stars!

All Stars Quilt

The All Stars quilt is based on a design by Jenny’s cute husband, Ron. It’s a quick, modern pattern that makes use of two of our favorite precuts: 10 inch squares and 2.5 inch strips.

Snails come in an amazing variety of sizes. One species is so massive, its shell can be used as a trumpet. Another is tiny enough to fit through the eye of a needle with room to spare!

Happy Trails Quilt

Just like a real snails, a Snail Trail block can be big or small. And with Jenny’s brand new method (courtesy of quilting friend, Kathy), they’re easier than ever to make! Whether you use 5-inch or 10-inch squares, this easy block is fun and swirly as can be!

Designer Tula Pink knows a thing or two about color. Her solids are delicious shades of “limeade” “persimmon” and “hibiscus.” Best of all? She chose a gorgeously bold fuchsia and named it after herself, Tula Pink! (Now I’m wondering…what color would I pick for my own name?)
