Yes, I have a few kits still available in my Island Batik Kismet line - for three of my most popular guided improv patterns:  Ins and Outs, Sound Waves and To the Point!  Grab 'em while I still have fabric!

I still have some strip sets in stock as well!  Yes, they are used in Sound Waves and in To the Point, but really they would be fabulous in any project!  I just love how vibrant this group is!

Oh, and there are a few sets left of my Kismet 28 wt Aurifil thread collection. Yes, it coordinates beautifully with the fabric collection.

Check out how awesome they look on this sample I created for my upcoming online classes (yes, it is the small compass block from my guided improv Compass Points pattern).  I used four different threads from the 28 wt collection.  I love how it adds texture and dimension to the batiks when used for quilting!

I hope you have been staying safe and healthy, and have found some fun quilty projects to keep you busy!

Until next time, happy stitching!

Attention Shop Owners:

I am starting a new Facebook group, specifically for shop owners.  I'll be releasing patterns on the Facebook page one week ahead of any public release, so you'll get to see them before anyone else does.

There will be Facebook Live presentations, showcasing new fabric lines, tips and technique suggestions, and other resources (as I discover and develop them) specially designed for you.  Please email me at to receive an invitation to join this private group.  I look forward to seeing you there! 

Like what you see here, and want to hear more from Tamarinis? Like me on Facebook, follow me on Instagram, and sign up for my newsletter at!  Following is one way to demonstrate your interest in my projects, patterns, and partnerships.  Your comments are also GREATLY appreciated, and provide valuable feedback regarding what inspires you, as well as what you'd like to see explored in future posts.  And did you know?  I travel and teach!  Contact me to schedule a trunk show and/or workshop!
