Fabric Friday – New Tonga Treats

I’ve always had a thing for batiks. And even though there is currently some debate, or shall we say “thoughts” in modern circles about the use of batiks in modern quilts, I certainly love them! (They are some of Jasons’ favorites, too, and he keeps pushing me to use them more!)

This week we just received a treasure trove of new Tonga Treats from Timeless Treasures: precut batik fat quarters, charms, strips, squares, and six-packs! Take a look:

20141017_reefReef includes gorgeous tones of purple and blue. Hmm, do you see a theme here? I think whoever named these groups wanted to get away for a little vacation, don’t you think?

    I have never been a fan of batiks until recently when I joined a Round Robin with ONLY using Batiks. I took it on because it again pushes me outside my comfort zone since I didn’t care for Batiks… now that I have been working with them; OH MY! They are beautiful! The colors play so well with one another and the array of design you can get with them is awesome! They were tricky to work with at first but I think I got it!

    love working with batiks – mixing them with solids and prints as well. I have a friend who does 90% of her quilts in batiks.

    Oh My Goodness, I think I almost fell off my chair when I saw those reef batiks. I also absolutely adore batiks, I cannot get enough of them.
