  1. I have never used Island Batiks or any batiks. Am curious as to how different they are to work with compared to quilting cotton.

  2. My local shop doesn't carry that line. I'll have to look at a vendor when I attend a quilt show.

  3. I have bought some fat quarters of Island Batiks when shop hopping with friends. They are in my batik tub, currently participating in a small round robin. I hope some make it into my resulting quilt.

  4. I'm still fairly new to the quilting world so I haven't yet. I have purchased another FQ Batik bundle (don't remember what brand) but haven't used it yet either. I love the color variations though!

  5. I do not believe I have. I was never drawn to batiks but lately other quilters scraps are making me love them.

  9. I do love to use Island Batiks in my quilts. I occasionally only use batiks in a quilt, but usually I put them in with quilting cottons...I love the way batiks play with other fabrics and I am constantly impressed with the lack of fraying in batiks. Thanks for posting the month-long schedule...I depend on the Ambassadors I follow to remind me of these hops and give me the links...daily!!!

  11. I don't think I've ever used Island Batiks. But I do often end up with other people's scraps, so it's possible that a few have snuck into my stash :)

  16. I've used some in a quilt for the Scientist in Training, her rainbow puzzle pieces. That quilt has been abandoned at home in favor of Chain Reaction, her chemistry quilt.
