Batiks Go Retro Blog Hop

Batiks Go Retro Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the fabulous Batiks Go Retro Blog Hop!! Hop into our flying car and buzz around some great blogs with us over the next two weeks, each featuring the retro-chic Batiks Go Retro collection by Tamarinis!

Tammy Silvers, the quilter and designer behind Tamarinis, has been designing patterns with Island Batik fabrics for years and we’re thrilled to be releasing her debut fabric collection! The vintage color palette of aquas, oranges, purples and blues mixed with retro hashtags, boomerangs, sunbursts, and whimsical television shapes are a match made in mid-century heaven.

Tammy carried the retro theme through to her quilts. With Jangle and Wedge-O-Matic, Tammy took classic blocks and gave them a vintage spin. Atomic Bombshell is perfect for those who love foundation paper piecing. And Dutch Windmills features a faux curved piecing technique that anyone can use!
