More Dutch Wax fabrics


I pulled out a few more of my favorite Dutch Wax fabrics.  I didn't take time to press them, so pardon the wrinkles.  I only have a fat quarter of this one.









I have a larger piece of this bird fabric, maybe 2 yards.













This pair of fabrics are really a favorite and I had pulled them out and promised myself to use them this year.  I love the dotted trees.

I had never heard of Dutch Wax prints before you posted the other day. These are beautiful. What a neat collection!

I can understand why it's taken you so long to think about cutting them; they are gorgeous!

Those are just beautiful! You have now inspired me to do a post on my African collection. Thanks for sharing!

Those are beautiful - I can just imagine all kinds of beautiful things coming from this fabric. Lucky you!

Congratulations to your daughter Vicki on her show piece. I hope she had a wonderful evening at the opening.
I love your Dutch wax batik pieces- I had never seen them before- It is hard to cut into some fabrics- These ones you want to show off the beautiful prints and they are probably quite large in design. I am sure you will come up with something beautiful.
Warmest regards,
Anna

I've got some of that second one - but with a gold background. I used it in one still unfinished quilt...

I've just Googled "dutch wax fabrics" and now I know what you are talking about? Love the second bird one.

I had a few and used them. I'm not sorry. Using them is enjoying them. But to know that there will be no supply is sad.
There is a way to have such patterns reprint at spoonflower.com
It is not cheap.
But if a pattern is so unique and beautiful as the blue African landscape that you showed us recently, it might be worth a try!

I too have never seen Dutch Wax fabrics. They are truly works of art. I did not see them on Friday. I just clicked right over to Vicki's blog so fast that I missed them.

I think Heaven must be the opportunity to wander through your stash.
