Earlier this year, Scott Hansen of Blue Nickel Studios introduced his first fabric collection for Banyan Batiks (a subdivision of Northcott). While I typically don’t use batiks in my work, when Scott contacted me and asked if I was interested in cutting up his new collection, Tie One On, to see what I can make, I said “Yes”! I love opportunities that force me to work outside my comfort zone. The color palette is typically not one I would work with but I was excited for the challenge. Side note: Scott was also a bit surprised when I requested white solid fabric to accompany the Tie One On fabric bundle!
Scott sent me the Sedona colorway of Tie One On. Check out the story (and all of the colorways) of the collection on Scott’s blog.

I decided to make a Sew Speedy wall hanging with my new fabric bundle. It’s Jelly Roll/Strip friendly and against a crisp, solid background the prints and color of Scott’s collection really stand out nicely.
Sew Speedy, an easy, beginner-friendly foundation paper piecing pattern, is a great mini quilt to make as a wall hanging for your sewing space or gift to a sewist! Want to learn more about my process of designing Sew Speedy? Check out my blog post about the making of Sew Speedy.
The fabric was easy to work with and I love how different this batik version is from the other Sew Speedy samples I’ve made. It’s amazing how the same pattern can look so different depending on your fabric choices!
Be sure to follow along with the blog hop to be inspired by other Tie One On projects!
