My Latest Pattern for Island Batik!

As you know, I’m an Island Batik Ambassador and as such I often create patterns for the Island Batik fabric collections. This month, the Ambassadors are celebrating the Spring 2019 batik collections with a fun filled blog hop. There are tons of giveaways and beautiful batiks on display during this hop! Click here to see the hop schedule and to enter the giveaways.

Today on the hop, we are showcasing the Clockworks collection.

Here is my pattern for that collection. I call it Like Clockwork.

You can view Like Clockwork and (two other quilt patterns I designed for the Spring/Summer 2019 collection) in the online Island Batik Spring/Summer catalog.

You will find the Clockworks fabric collection in your local quilt shop now.

Like Clockwork finishes at 64" x 80". I simply love the deep browns and teals in this collection. So warm and perfect for fall!

I had Like Clockwork quilted with an all over pattern of interlocking gears. Simply perfect for this!

For the backing,Island Batik sent #121810585 from the Oh Deer Winter 2018 collection. I really love this rich dark navy with orangy-gold snowmen and I think it really compliments the front of the quilt.

As you know, I went to Spring Market where I took photos of my three quilts displayed in the Island Batik booth. Here I am with Like Clockwork.

Here are the quilt details.
