Introducing the Island Batik Icicle Line and Patterns


Icicle

I am so very fortunate to be able to work with the wonderful folks at Island Batik - and this past season has been no exception!  This month, the Icicle line is hitting store shelves.  And I think you're going to fall for this line completely - just sayin'.

Like the name implies, it is a lovely, crisp group of blues, whites and grays that definitely put a chill in the air - and with the heat of summer right around the corner, that sounds PERFECT to me!

Icicle Line

 

And just look at these lovely prints - snowflakes (of course!), deer, trees, and some wonderful all over prints that aren't holiday or seasonally specific so they are perfect for practical any project.

Speaking of projects - I'm equally as thrilled with the projects I created to showcase this line.  Who doesn't love blue and white quilts - right?! I think you'll find a technique for just about everyone!

Antique Circles

Antique Circles is based on an antique quilt (gee, Tammy - how did you come up with the name for this one?? Ha!).  But, dear quilting friend, you'll be happy to learn that there is NO curved piecing in this quilt.  Yup - far easier than it looks!  There is a bonus table runner as well.  You can find it here on my website.

Bounce

Bounce is a strip pieced, large block quilt that stitches up pretty quickly, and has a wonderful traditional gone modern feel. You can find it here on my website.

Lovely Woods

Lovely Woods take full advantage of the repeating row batik for the alternate borders and the outer border.  Paper piecing makes the trees easy - and the overall effect is just like a walk in a winter wood!  Oh - and did I mention there is a terrific table runner option too? You can find it here on my website.

Prism

Prism is the latest in my guided improv series.  This one was super fun - not only because I totally love the guided improv technique, but because it also uses a gradation of fabrics (a current trend I'm embracing) to enhance the dimensional effect. You can find it here on my website.

Tartary-2

Last but not least - Tartary.  This has been a constant favorite, and it got a refresh with the Icicle line.  AND I have expanded the pattern to include three sizes, so now your old favorite has fresh new options! You can find it here on my website.
