Today was like Christmas! We got a wonderful arrival from Hoffman today! The Hoffman 1895 Batiks are hand dyed water colors, and there are over 372 colors in this collection! Personally, I want them all!
Hoffman has narrowed them down to six different beautiful color ways, and packaged them together in their famous Bali Pops, Crackers, and Snaps. Bali Pops are strip rolls with 40 pre-cut strips 2 1/2" by 42/43". Crackers are 10" squares, with a variety of 40 unique squares in the package, and Snaps are 5" pre-cut squares with 40 unique squares in the package.
The collections in order, from left to right are:
First Row - Terra, Sea Glass, and Gemstone
Second Row - Mercury, Mineral, and Agate
There are so many great patterns out there for these pre-cut collections! One of our favorites for strips is Magic Maze. This fun quilt frames your strips with a maze-like pattern. This would be a great gift for the man in your life made out of the Mineral Strips! Click here for info on this pattern.
What about the Judy Niemeyer pattern Crackers for a beautiful baby quilt out of the Sea Glass pastel 10" squares? Click here to see the Crackers pattern.
Or the Villa Rosa pattern Tower Bridge? I've made this several times and it is a really fun and easy pattern to do. It would look great in any of these collections! Click here to see Tower Bridge.
And Table for Two would look fabulous on your table made out of any of the 5" charm square packages. Click here to see the Table for Two pattern.
