Missouri Star Shop Feature: Batik BoutiqueSissy's Quilt Designs
While it may be winter here in Hamilton, once you step into our Batik Boutique you will be transported to a tropical island filled with gorgeous hand-dyed fabrics!
Batik fabric is created using a unique dyeing process in which wax is used to resist the dye. Where the wax is placed results in the design on the fabric, which can then be repeated to create even more intricate designs.
Considering that most batiks are manufactured in Indonesia, our shop was designed and decorated accordingly. From the blue stamped concrete, to the pebbled checkout counter and all of the island themed decor, no detail was left out!
Batiks come in every color of the rainbow and almost any design you could imagine.
Let your creativity run wild with all of our stunning shop samples and the precuts to make them below.

While in our Batik Boutique you may also run into Beth, one of our amazing employees here at Missouri Star! Beth is an avid quilter who loves to assist and share her knowledge with our guests.
Check out these rich tropical batiks that were used in Jenny’s original Out of Time Quilt.
Our Batiks shop has had quite the history! It was a bicycle shop near the turn of the 20th Century, until it was sold and converted into a barbershop, with a corner devoted to the town watchmaker and watchsmith. The shop then became a doctor’s office and later turned into a 2nd hand store before Missouri Star bought the building.
