You know it's gonna be great when "Island Batik" hosts a blog hop.
It's that time, when you get to see the new fabrics that are starting to hit the shelves. I start to drool, just thinking about it!
A big thanks to Katie and all the great folks at "Island Batik" for hosting this hop and sharing these fabulous new lines with us!
"Island Batik" has some great give-a-ways, for you too!
Oh, and I have a lil somethin up my sleeve!
I had the privilege of working with this new line by Kathy Engle
I couldn't have picked it better if I had to try.
All my favorite deep rich colors were in there.
For this hop, we are going to take a little train ride.
On the "Zoo Train" that is!
This 49" x 56" quilt brings miles of smiles.
The sweet little animal faces, make children of any age
want to jump on board!
There is so much "fun" detail in this quilt.
But it's these fabulous batiks that make it just...pop!
Note: I've pulled some fabrics from other lines,
get a nice variety of colors! :-)
Batik is definitely my favorite fabric to work with
when I have this much detail.
It's also perfect for raw edge applique. The tight weave
makes for very little fraying.
For those located in the Denver area, you can take this train to
"Wooden Spools". (It's linked for you)
Well OK, maybe not this train... but they do love Island Batik there, and this line should be in stores in Jan/Feb. Give Vicki a call for availability in the shop.
I had big plans for a give-a-way, until I broke my wrist.
But with the help of friends, who kindly cut some fat quarters for me...
I will be giving away this selection of London Fog, and a couple other surprises, to 1 lucky person who leaves a comment on my blog telling me what your favorite Island Batik line is!!!
You can see them all right
(Along with some fabulous new quilts)
I will pick my winner next Monday Feb 22.
