Sock Hop Blog Hop

Welcome to Day 1 of our Sock Hop Blog Hop! The Island Batik Ambassadors and Designers are excited to share our brand new fabrics with you. These fabrics debuted at Fall International Quilt Market in October of 2014 and you’ll start seeing them pop up in your favorite local quilt shops this month!

Island Batik Sock Hop Blog Hop

Why the “Sock Hop Blog Hop”? We know, it’s a bit of a tongue twister! We wanted to have fun with the color groupings in this line, each of which is named after a song you might have heard at a sock hop. Continuing with the “classic” theme, all of our bloggers have picked their favorite “oldie but goodie” block to share with you! Brush up on your old favorites or discover a few new ones. You’ll see each block used in a fabulous project to get you inspired!

Here’s the schedule of bloggers, blocks, and fabrics. Don’t miss a day!

    I attended a four day mystery quilt class at the end of December.
    I use all batiks. Picture of the quilt top is on my blog. It was just on my design wall at this time. It is now sewn together and I am finishing up the back. Will post a new picture when done.

    My stash of batiks really took a beating. Love these!!

    • Lorna McMahon January 13, 2015, 4:26 pm

      You don’t need to follow “social media” to enter the giveaway. You don’t need to have a facebook account to view a facebook page. And that is all that is required for each of the facebook related entries. You don’t have to “Like” the page to enter, just visit the page.

  • Bibi January 13, 2015, 11:52 am
