Island Batiks Inc. calls their 2 1/2" x WOF precuts, Strip Packs. There are 40 strips, usually 2 strips of each fabric, in coordinated colors and prints.  These two Island Batik Strip Packs, Pretty Sweet and Spring Melt, were used in two sample quilts, #152 Diamond in the Strips Bed Runner which can be seen in our Pattern Catalog.  These strip packs are currently in stores.


 Another Island Batik Strip Pack "Walnut Bark" was used in our #156 Chevron Bed Runner which can also be seen in our Pattern Catalog.
