Why do I have these? Because I'm one of the Island Batik Ambassadors, and I get samples to share.
So, get your eyes ready to feast on these stunning fabrics.
This year, the prints include the paisley/traditional style, and the small pine tree print, among others. I wish you could see these in person, and touch them. You'll see why I love Island Batik fabrics.
The paisley and sunflowers will be in other colors, too, as will the animal print.
This one is my favorite. When I opened the box and pulled this out, I just said "OOOHhh". It was stunning, and caught my attention right away. The colors are just so vibrant, and that paisley speaks to my "traditional" print heart. This is one I would buy yards of, and savor for a while before deciding what to make.
The second collection I got is called Buttermilk.
The colors in this are really yummy! I'm sure that led to the name.
Cream and peach with swirls of dots, and a gorgeous floral with a touch of lavender. aqua, and yellow, as well as the peach and cream.
That gorgeous paisley again!
The pine trees, this time in pale green on cream.
These two were my favorite in this collection.
So, any thoughts on what you would make? Do you plan to ask your favorite quilt shops to carry Island Batik? Which of these would you buy? Let me know! I love your replies.
