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!
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!
