Topsy Turvy: Island Batik Blog Hop


Cool Cat” is a colorful art quilt that is fun and easy to sew. I used three colorful fabric groupings from Island Batik with a panel from my stash from Indonesia. I had been saving the panel for 10 years, waiting for the perfect fabric.

 

It was so fun auditioning the colorful groupings "In Full Bloom", "In the Summertime", and "Quilted in Honor". As you can see, many of Island Batik fabric groupings can be used in the same project. The fabrics were outstanding for this "Cool Cat"


Anyone can enjoy piecing these easy Log Cabin blocks with all this wonderful color. My pattern, “Topsy Turvy”, can be used to accentuate any panel or large print fabric. Best of all, creating art means not having to match any seams! To enjoy making this project for yourself, visit my website www.svartist.com to purchase the pattern, "Topsy Turvy". All of my patterns are quilter-tested. Additional pictures showing the steps will be sent with your purchase.
