    Do You Know My Name?

    I am the last of my kind at this house (6 x 5 1/2 inches), and Anne wants more. She does not know how old I am, or where I came from, only that I am a batik.

    Can you help?

    I'm sorry, I can't help but that is a very pretty batik. Hopefully, someone else will know more.

    Batik patterns and colors seem to come and go so fast! I have not been successful in finding more of any one batik fabric. A few rare times I have been able to go back to the same place and buy more, but usually it's already gone.

    I have some that looks a lot like that (in several colors). I got them in a fat quarter bundle, either from MSQC or Connecting threads, 2-3 years ago. But like others have said, batiks are always changing and I know when I wanted to buy more of a particular one, it was gone.

    I was thinking this might be a Connecting Threads batik too - I'll look at my stash tomorrow and see if there is any there.

    I have had excellent luck with Batiks Plus. They have a lot of inventory, and it's fun to sort through it.

    hugs,

    Do you know my name.

    We have a quilt shop in town and if I should find this batik, how much do you need? This quilt shop buys a big quantity and almost always has what someone should need.
    Hello from Iowa. I love to read each of these topics, where yes, there are lol, tears and omg.Renee

    I've only been lucky finding more of ONE batik, and when I did find it, I bought 5 more yards. The good news is, I discovered that if you wait a bit, you usually find a very similar batik that makes an acceptable substitute.

    You might try searching batiksetc.com. I found a fabric that I couldn't find anywhere else..
