Island Batik Getaway with the Paisley Park Collection

I hope you have been having a great "Getaway" on the Island Batik blog hop! 

An easy place to start your "Getaway" is on the Island Batik blog where you can see the entire schedule as well as get a glimpse of what each collection looks like.   And be sure to enter the giveaway to be eligible to win some souvenirs from the "Getaway" too!  


The collection that I want to share with you is Paisley Park

To showcase the collection, I designed and am releasing a new pattern Dots & Dashes.  The pattern is available for purchase in my Etsy store
 

Dots & Dashes is made with the Paisley Park Collection from Island Batik, Steam-A-Steam Lite and Warm 80/20 batting from The Warm Company and Aurifil thread. 


Dots & Dashes features easy strip piecing paired with raw edge fusible applique to create this stunning quilt. 




Be sure to follow along on the hop by visiting all the "Getaway" locations and don't forget to enter the giveaway sponsored by Island Batik for some fun fabric bundles!

I will be giving away 3 Dots & Dashes patterns, so leave me a comment about what you want to "Getaway" and I will select three lucky winners at the end of the blog hop!

  4. Love the dots and the applique close up. Getaway, a quilting retreat would be my choice, and as I have not been to one ever, would be a dream. Taking some Island Batik would be the icing. Beautiful fabrics and you have them playing wonderfully together.

  6. Fun fabrics and patterns! I want to get away from all this show and cold weather we are having. A co-worker just got back from Florida and we all are jealous. ☺

  9. Beautiful quilt. I like the mix of straight line shapes and the circles. Island Batik has gorgeous fabric lines. I would love to getaway during the Fall. Living in Southern Florida makes me miss the changing of the seasons and watching the leaves change colors and fall to the ground. At one point in time there was a train you could take that would travel through an area that has lots of leaves that change to some brilliant colors. I think that would be fun.

  24. Your design is great and a wonderful display of the fabrics. With all the really cold temperatures and my pipes froze and we are expecting more snow, snow is okay, can't stand freezing rain so I would wish to fly off to sunny skies and warm breezes and a beautiful ocean!

  45. There are 3 Getaways on my wish list. First is a return trip to the Sewing Expo in Puyallup, WA. Quilting is an important component of the Expo, so always fun and challenging. Second is the Rose City Yarn Crawl in Portland, OR. I haven't been yet, but as I love knitting, I know it would be so much fun to visit 15-20 yarn shops. Third is the Sisters Quilt Show over in eastern Oregon. Lovely area and quilt shows are always fun and inspiring. I don't think this is the year, but I'm hoping next year. Meantime, this is my first blog hop and I'm finding it very interesting and instructive.
