This gorgeous bundle of hand dyed quilt fabrics includes shades of blues, deep teals, and dark grays. The dye process gives a feeling of water movement. Like the currently popular ice dyeing method, there are variations in color saturation and density throughout the fabric, giving depth and interest to these fabrics. Unlike with a batik fabric, however, each of these fabrics consists of a single dye color, and there are not motif patterns. The dye process produces a fabric with variations in saturation and color depth, but no discernable pattern. These make wonderful fabrics for backgrounds, hand applique, and small piecing projects.

This bundle consists of 15 fat quarters (for a total of 3-3/4 full yards of fabric) and includes blues, deep teals/turquoises, and cool grays. Each Fat Quarter is approximately 18” x 21”. This bundle is factory cut for precision. The packaging on the bundle may be cut to allow for less expensive shipping, but all labeling will be included when shipped.

As always, I double wrap your fabrics to help protect them from potential damage during shipping.

About Artisan Batiks: These one-of-a-kind Artisan Batiks are produced on the island of Java in Indonesia by skilled dye masters.

Each yard of these sumptuous fabrics is unique. The fabric is hand-stamped and then hand-painted multiple times, with many different pairs of hands working on every yard. Most of the work is done outside, so the weather greatly influences the results. Due to this specialized hand-process, there is a consistency to color and pattern, while maintaining subtle color variations that are so important to this traditional technique.

Please Note: There are always slight variations from bolt to bolt and color to color that result from the interaction of the hand processes with nature. This is the beauty of batik.

About the designers: Renowned fiber artists Debra Lunn & Michael Mrowka (pronounced ma-ROOF-ka) of Lunn Studios proudly bring their stunning and acclaimed hand-dyed batiks to Robert Kaufman Company.

Quiltmakers, hand dyers and surface designers, the two have been producing fabrics for nearly 40 years.

Debra Lunn has been making quilts since 1963. While in graduate school in textile design in 1976 at the University of Minnesota, she began hand-dyeing fabrics for use in her own quilts.

Debra's quilt, Counterpoint, was the first and only piece in Quilt National '79 (the first exhibition) that was made of hand-dyed fabrics. Debra's personal art quilts which feature hand-dyed fabrics that are made at Lunn Fabrics have continued to be included in national and international juried and invitational exhibitions.

In 1988, Debra started hand-dyeing fabrics in gradations to sell to other quiltmakers.

In 1991, Debra met Michael Mrowka, and they joined together in the endeavor of Lunn Fabrics (and also as personal mates). Working together, Lunn Fabrics expanded to produce fabrics that are hand-dyed, hand-painted, airbrushed, hand-stamped, and screenprinted.

Michael, a sculptor, painter and a journeyman printer of 20 years (on paper), has streamlined production and invented new techniques and patterns.

In 1994, Debra and Michael began designing fabric for Robert Kaufman Company, which continued until 1998. They created innovative lines of fabric for commercial production, which include Pointillist Palette, Natural Creations, Vibrations, Prima Materia, Photo Real Clouds, DYE IT! and Precious Metals.

Debra and Michael are thrilled to have returned to Robert Kaufman to run the batik division, called Artisan Batiks.
