Last fall, Northcott introduced their new Banyan Batiks fabrics. Since then several more designs have been added to the collection. There’s also a grouping of “essentials” – Brush Strokes, Shibori, and Ketan – that come in dozens of colors. These “essentials” blend with the more patterned collections.
Many of these fabrics are in your favorite quilt shops now and more will be added in the coming months. Just click the product finder button on the Northcott site to find out which shops have your favorite Banyan Batiks. If you enjoy designing your own quilts, you can also download the fabric images to Electric Quilt just by clicking on the “Download for EQ” button.
As an added bonus, many of the fabrics are offered as precuts – fat quarter bundles, Tiles (10″ squares) and Strips (2½” strips).
You can learn more about Banyan Batiks in this video.

There’s also a Facebook page devoted to Banyan Batiks. More good information!
A few weeks ago, I received a wonderful collection of fat quarters from several of the Banyan Batiks collections. Have a look!
So this week, I’ll be showing you some quick ways to use fat quarters to create some small batik quilts.
Come back tomorrow and I’ll show you how to make a table runner from some modern nine patch blocks using 2 fat quarters from Northcott Banyan Batiks Visual Sound collection.
