Quilts, and a whole lot more…
Home of the Purple Cat Gang
Have you used our Quilters Dream Green batting before? If you have, how do you like it? I am becoming more and more sold on this batting the more I use it for our customers and ourselves in our sample quilts. There are several reasons for this.
So you see, there are 3 great reasons to try Dream Green in your next quilt. If you quilt your own quilts, you can just buy the batting. It comes in sizes from craft (36” x 46”) for $7.95 to king (120” x 120”) at $29.95. Why not give Dream Green a try? If we don’t have the size you need, we can order it for you.
See you soon,
We usually recommend that you pre-wash your batik fabrics before you put them in your quilt. Batiks are handmade and can often have dye and/or wax left on the surface of the fabric. For that reason, we recommend that you pre-wash your batiks in cool water with a soap made for keeping the dye from depositing on other fabrics in the wash such as Synthrapol. Just a capful of Synthrapol in your water will be enough to keep the dye from transferring to other fabrics. Dry in a low temperature dryer. This procedure will prevent any dye transfer when you wash your completed quilt. NotJustQuiltZ always has Synthrapol in a 4 oz. bottle for $2.95 each.
We are so pleased to carry Designer Bali Boxes chock full of beautiful handmade batik fabrics!
Select your favorite color scheme and create a quilted Bali Tote from the included pattern or use the fabric for your own project. Each box contains 5 half-yard cuts of color coordinated fabric plus a pattern.
Once the project has been completed, you will have a lovely fabric-covered box left for personal use. The beautiful handcrafted Designer Bali Box can be used for storing sewing notions, jewelry or anything your heart desires.
Dream Green is a soft, cozy batting made 100% from recycled plastic bottles! This batting can be machine-washed and dried with little to no shrinkage. Dream Green is wrinkle-resistant. We are quite pleased to be able to offer this to our customers as an alternative to more traditional batting materials.
Each pound of Dream Green Batting keeps 10 plastic bottles out of our landfills. Plastic bottles are cut into chips, washed, melted and extruded into fine polyester fibers. These recycled fibers are indistinguishable from “virgin” polyester fibers yet are made without depleting our precious natural resources. To avoid additional processing we have kept the soft “natural” green bottle color – but you can rest assured that Dream Green is colorfast and compatible to all your finest quilts and projects.
