Batik Quilts

Everyone loves batik quilts, here are a couple of patterns that feature batiks and are fun and easy to make!

This quilt is called Gemini, it's another from the girls at Blue Underground Studios.  We're borrowing it for the next few months, so if you stop in the shop you'll see it hanging up.  It's fat quarter and jelly roll friendly.  You need just 24 fat quarters or 2 jelly rolls.  We have tons of batiks here, here and here!   We have a few Strip-tease Buns from Island Batik here and tons of Jelly Rolls here.  The batiks show well in this pattern, but any jelly roll would be great!


This quilt is called Twilight, it was made using the Curves for Rectangles ruler by Creative Grids.  The owner made this one.  The pattern gives instructions for cutting with or without the ruler, but the ruler will give you a perfect cut every time.  One of the great things about this quilt is the border print.  We have quite a few of these available from Batik Textiles  The links above, next to the Gemini quilt, will take you to tons more batiks, as well.  If you have never worked with batiks, give it a try!  They really do make a beautiful quilt~
