Welcome to Bay Batik Boutique

Hi my name is Lesley Blackwood; I have been a quilter for about 12 years but a sewer and crafter for 50 years.

I have loved Batik fabric from Bali since my first visit there in 1982.

A Bargello Quilt I made using Batik fabrics
Last year when my daughter and her family went to Bali I asked her to bring me back some fabric from a factory I had contacted on the internet, since then I have had several deliveries from them.

Up until now I have concentrated on selling to my local quilting groups and I've also sold some of my fabrics on ebay.
I am now entering a new challenge with this blog and a big cartel shop.

My supplier sends 2 container loads of stunning fabrics to the US every month but has only me and one other customer in Australia. So my fabrics are highley exclusive in Australia.

I hope you enjoy looking at my fabrics and using them to make lovely quilts and other projects. They are high-count cotton and are great for appliqué, and pieced work.

Welcome to My blog, I'd love to hear from you, and if you are after anything in particular please just email me and I will do my best to get what you need. 


  1. Hi Mum, Can't wait to see some of your projects!
    Hugs Paula

  2. Good on you! I love your fabrics so am definitely interested in purchasing more larger pieces! Good luck in your endeavours!

  3. Hi Lesley,you don't know me but a friend rang me to tell me about your site so here I am looking.
    I am a sewer as well and I am looking for some material for a top I am making.

    Good luck


  4. Hi Cathy
    I have just returned from Bali with some loverly fabrics.
    They are being pressed at the moment and then I will post some pictures.
    I have about 10 yards or more on some rolls so I would have enough for a top.
    Happy Stitching

  5. Hi Lesley,
    I bought some of your beautiful charm squares off eBay. Just love the stunning colours.
    I'm sure your venture will succeed.
    Good Luck.
