Stacy Michell

Changing Tides is a collection of vibrant, tropical fabrics designed by Kathy Engle for Stacy Michell. The cool blues, greens, and purples mixed with warm yellows, oranges and pink come together in Stacy’s signature Hawaiian style applique projects. These fabrics are also highlighted in a fresh new quilt from Stacy inspired by her love of Asian culture, to be premiered at International Quilt Market.

Stacy believes in creating easy to finish projects by using all the resources available to today’s quilters. Check out the new patterns she has with these designs. Also, SoftFuse Premium and die cuts are available to make these great Hawaiian Appliques in your shop to sell as pre-cut, pre-fused, how can you go wrong with that applique?! This fabric line is supported by the Changing Tides 50 wt. designer thread collection from Aurifil.

Fourth and Sixth Designs

When Barbara and Mary of Fourth and Sixth Designs needed color inspiration for their first fabric line for Island Batik, they looked to nature. In designing the Full Bloom collection, they went right to the beautiful colors of Gerbera Daisies. You will find subtle value changes throughout the line, which allow you to get just the right shading and highlights that many of their appliqué designs require. See these fabrics in a block of the month program, a fat quarter project, and a 2.5” Island Strips quilt. This fabric line is supported by the Full Bloom designer thread collection from Aurifil.

Quilted In Honor

QIH Logo


The Quilted In Honor fabric line is the most unique batik line in the industry: 45 vibrant  fabrics designed by Island Batik's Kathy Engle. The line was created to inspire quilters, sewing enthusiasts, guilds and shops to rally around our troops and give back in an innovative way. The line is meant to inspire projects that tell the human side of what "serving our country" really means to soldiers and their families back home. Their sacrifice is great; now it's our turn to show them how much we appreciate their commitment to our country and tell the stories of what their service means to us!

Screen Prints

You will find bold colors and geometric patterns in this diverse screen print collection. Named after earth's elements, these groupings are really out of this world! Our screen prints are hand dyed in the traditional batik method but "stamped" with wax and screens instead of stamps.

The screen print fabrics are supported with patterns from sister design team Forth and Sixth Designs. See their patterns here.
