Winter Wonderland with Island Batik

It's that time of year, and the new batiks are hitting the shelves.

These new ones, just fill my heart with joy!
I have to admit, that my favorite colorway in this line, is the center one. There is just something about that "denim" look that speaks to me. 
Could it be that endless rows on jeans in my closet???

Yes, that denim color proved to be the perfect background 
for this jolly ole guy!
He comes from the "Art to Heart" Christmas Favorites book.

While quilting his beard those reindeer seemed to just melt away.
That's one of the fun parts of working with batik prints.
No matter the pattern, they work up beautifully in any project.

And when you step back, they seem to magically re-appear.
Check out your LQS for these new beauties and
make a little magic yourself!
Now as for me...
I'm thinking my favorite denim batik would work up great in a recycle denim raggy quilt. Oh, would that not be warm and wonderful?

Till next time...
Keep on Stitchin'
