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!
Gorgeous, rich colors with tons of dimension and beautiful prints!
Our shelves are almost filled up! We’re getting new fabrics every day!
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.
Browse our entire collection of batik fabrics! On your next visit to Hamilton, we hope you’ll stop in to the Batik Boutique and say hello!
