  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.

  6. Thanks for hosting both the hop and the giveaway. Those beautiful batiks certainly brighten up these overcast January days!

  7. Thanks for the giveaway and for hosting the bloghop

  8. I don't use very many batiks but I'd love to give them try.

  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!!!

  10. I love their batiks! They are definitely in my stash!

  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 :)

  12. I have used island batiks - in some pillows for my daughter and I bought some to gift to my sister! She made a quilt with them. tks!

  13. I do use island batiks. I made a valentine wall hanging with parts of island batiks to give it some pizazz

  14. I have not yet use batiks in my projects but I do have a couple layer cakes of them.

  15. I haven't used these before, but they look fantastic!

  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.

  17. I haven't used any Island Batiks, but they look really nice. I try to be frugal in my fabric purchases.

  18. I have never used Island Batiks, but love the colors and depth.
