Welcome to fat quarter-friendly week!

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.

Use the product finder key to find which shops have the fabric you need.

As an added bonus, many of the fabrics are offered as precuts – fat quarter bundles, Tiles (10″ squares) and Strips (2½” strips).
