Four Seasons Blog Hop with Island Batik






Welcome to the blog hop showing new collections of beautiful fabrics from Island Batik. You can also find many interesting giveaways if you follow the blog hop throughout January. Here you can find the Island Batik giveaway, and on the bottom of this post you'll find one from me. And on all blogs on the list you can win fabric, patterns etc. by commenting on the posts.

Island Batik Ambassadors were sent different collections of the newest fabics arriving the shops just now. My collection is called ELEMENTZ, and if you know me, you can see that these fabrics really suit me, bright and colorful.






The theme is spring, and I started out with these wonderful green fabrics.





But soon I found that I had to really show you the Norwegian spring. It's pretty unique, because you often can find all four seasons in the same week. Yes, and sometimes even during a day you can find them all. The weather is rapidly changing from morning to evening.

My thoughts started to turn around the logo for this blog hop. I used all the fabrics in a beautiful mix like this. The squares are 3 1/2".





And with the appliques it ended up like this. Finished size: 36" x 36".







My giveaway is a first aid kit pouch with scraps and leftovers from this quilt. It's open to all readers all over the world. Just leave me a comment here to be in the draw. I'd love to hear where you are from and what your favorite color is. I'll pick a winner at February 2.

  9. Lovely quilt! What a great idea to use the logo. It's perfect! Here in Indiana, we often have changing weather throughout a day so I understand. It always fascinates me though when it does that. Right now though I'm thinking of you and sending you lots of hugs and love from across the ponds. Take care my friend!

  20. I love how you made your quilt look like the blog hop quilt. Brilliant! I love color. I like to work with what I call Crayola colors. Those that you would find in a 16 or 32 count box of crayons. I love brights paired with black but greys have been calling my name lately.

  28. Really love the quilt you've made to honor the Blog Hop logo. And your First Aid Kit Pouch is awesome! I've had a pattern to make one of those, but the zipper goes all around three sides of it. I've not been able to find the exact zipper they've shown in the pattern yet. It was created to hold Epi-pens for those who are allergic to different foods or pests like bees. One of my grandchildren is horribly allergic to peanut butter so I wanted to make that pouch for her to carry the supplies in case she needs them. I really like yours the way it's created. I know if I won, she would get that for sure, but I'm keeping the fabric. LOL
    Oh and to answer, I am from Norther IL, USA and purple is my all time favorite color.
