The Jelly Roll Waves Quilt Along is running from July through August.  Get the pattern and join us in making this fun and easy quilt. The pattern includes 6 sizes from baby to king. It's jelly roll friendly for traditional piecing and yardage friendly for strip piecing.  The next two weeks we're making half of the blocks.  Go HERE to show us your blocks.

Island Batik Getaway Blog Hop Is Live!!

The Island Batik Getaway Blog Hop begins this week and continues through February 1st.  The Blog Hop is hosted by Island Batik Ambassadors who will be sharing projects made with brand-new Island Batik fabric collections.  


Island Batik Boho is the fabric collection featured on my stop of the Getaway Blog Hop, and my date is January 24th.  Aren't those bright colors just beautiful!  I ♥♥♥ working with brights and am excited to share my quilt with you.  Here's a hint as to what I'm making ...

My Boho quilt will be a Queen size made in one of my quilt patterns.  If you guess which one, I will send you a PDF of that pattern for FREE!  You can see all of my quilt patterns right here.  This offer is only available until I post the first progress picture here or on my Facebook or Instagram feeds, which will be soon!

Jelly Roll Waves

Pixelation would be my pick.

Lynne Stucke said...

I think you're going to law Home Awaits .... It will look fabulous in batiks! [lynnstck(at)yahoo.com]

GranChris said...

I think Picket Fence would be great for showing off Batiks.

Judi Crespo said...

Falling Stars is my guess.

Gene Black said...

I think "Key to My Heart" is the one you will make

Kathy S. said...

I think you will make it using your Picket Fence pattern to show off larger pieces of batiks.

I'm thinking Jelly Roll Waves although those fabrics would look great in other patterns by you.

Such a fun idea for a contest! I think Rosewood Lane would be a beautiful match with this collection.
