Falling in love with Banyan Batiks Kayana autumn fabric collection

by Claire Haillot

If fall is your most favorite season of all, you’ll love this project as it features the Kayana collection from Banyan Batiks which highlights the awesome autumn colorway. It’s the perfect weekend project you can make, no matter your skill level, and gift without breaking your heart.

Falling in love with Kayana Autumn Collection from Banyan Batiks

The secret to this easy project is the beautiful masterpiece #80296-25 from the Kayana Autumn collection as its color changes from one selvage to the other. It’s the perfect key element for the pattern I have in mind.

The main piece of the collection features the color range of the complete collection in a masterful way.


This makes a 24″ x 36″ quilted throw.

cutting instructions

Main fabric

  • Cut one 12½” piece (D) (ensure this is cut from selvage to selvage)
  • Cut one 6½” WOF strip
    • subcut into six 6½” squares (C) (ensure the blocks are made with each distinctive colorway: one beige, two pink, one brown and two brown/black) Refer to photo below to see color blocks.

Coordinating fabrics

  • Cut one 2½” WOF strip from each coordinating fabric
    • subcut into two 2½” x 6½” rectangles (A) and three 2½” squares (B)

Refer to photo when cutting the six 6½” squares in each distinctive colorway.

Come back tomorrow to see how to make the main block for this project. I’m sure once you start cutting the pieces, you’ll also fall in love with the beauty of the Kayana Autumn Collection by Banyan Batiks.
