Giveaway: Bali Pops Pack

balipops-neat

Hoffman Fabrics recently introduced six new “flavors” of their popular pre-cut Bali Pops fabric packs. The packs include 40 different Bali Batiks cut in strips measuring 2.5″ wide by 44″ long. I’m not much of a batik person but I have worked with them before in quilts and appreciate their deep, saturated colors and organic, hand-rendered motifs. The Hoffman batiks come in an astounding variety of colors and beautiful, versatile designs. They sent me a mocha mint pack, and immediately upon opening the package I had the urge to go to Starbucks. I thought that was a funny reaction to tropical fabric.

Hoffman’s in-house designers create the motifs and colorways of their batiks, which are produced in Bali, Indonesia by master craftspeople using traditional handmade methods. If you need some guidance on how to use these packs, check out Breaking Waves, a free quilt pattern available through the Hoffman site. There are also for-sale patterns and/or books by Brenda Henning, Suzanne McNeill, Trisha Stuart, and Daniela Stout that employ these fabrics.

    Batik isn’t usually my bag either, but the green tea has a nice range of colors. Love the green with pops of creamsicle orange! It would also work well for a project I’m scheming up for my mom’s November birthday…

  26. Marilyn says:

    I love the Green Tea and Cotton Candy! Beautiful fabrics!

  27. BizzieLizzie says:

    Oh, my – GREAT give-a-way! I can see a coiled basket made out of this lovely fabric. It was hard to choose just one – so I’m going with (2) and either one will be fine if I am lucky enough to win!! The Green Tea and Spumoni colorways are FAB!! Put my name in the basket – I’m game!

  28. Mary on Lake Pulaski says:

    Oh oh oh GREEN TEA is perfect selection (and mine). Please throw me into the pot. Thanks.

  34. Jocelyn says:

    Oh these look so yummy. I really like the Spumoni but the others look wonderful too.

  35. dangermom says:

    Oh, it’s so hard to choose–but I think I’m in the mood for cappucino! They are all gorgeous.

  36. Lisa Ann says:

    I love Bali Pops. If I had to choose just one I think it would be Spumoni, but Green Tea is a really close second. I think it would be hard to go wrong with any of them.

  37. Vanessa says:

    I love the green tea… I’m totally into green and am obsessed with actual green tea as well!

  38. Valerie says:

    I think it’s a tie between the Mocha Mint and the Green Tea! But they are all so wonderful!

  39. chris says:

    i love the spumoni colorway. it’s got a lot of color that reminds me of a tropical paradise summer getaway. :)

  40. Debbie says:

    I love the Green Tea and Cotton Candy ones!

  44. shayshap says:

    I love the sherbert one so much. I can see this made into a pillow in my bedroom.

  45. Deanna says:

    I must say being biased towards green that the ‘green tea’ is my fav, but ‘cotton candy’ and ‘strawberry fields’ are tied for a close second.

  46. Jessica says:

    Sherbet looks so pretty!

  47. Libby says:

    I have to go with Strawberry Fields…but love them all!

  48. beth says:

    Bali Pops™ Fabric Strips – Spumoni I really like the variety of colors in this one!!

  49. It’s a toss up between Green Tea and Cappuccino. I love working with batiks. They behave so nicely and they’re gorgeous, too!

  50. Michele says:

    Wow, how to choose just one? These are beautiful fabrics. I think that I will have to say Green Tea, Mocha Mint, or Cappucino. Thanks Kim very much for the chance to win! Take care, Michele
