  • VickiT January 18, 2017, 6:01 am

    Thanks for the blog hop and giveaway. I did enter on Rafflecopter, however the link for Beaquilter is not correct. I am a follower of hers so I did go to her page on my own. I saw above a comment was made that it had been corrected but clicking above was not a good link.
    This is the link for Beaquilter’s FB page

  • Linda January 18, 2017, 1:10 pm

    Stunning bundles. Would be my lucky day if my name were picked.

  • Sheila Richardson January 22, 2017, 11:03 pm

    Thank you for sharing the pattern. The colors you chose and the placement of them give such a feeling of movement, that it’s almost like looking into an actual lake!! Love it, can’t wait to make it. Again, thanks.

  • diane willard January 23, 2017, 9:12 am

    Have just begun to quilt and have just discovered your fabrics! The very good friend who introduced me to quilting is a HUGE Island Batik fan, and these fabrics would make a wonderful gift for her. Many thanks.

  • Chris January 28, 2017, 10:52 pm

    So far I have loved everyone’s quilts.

  • Debbie D January 29, 2017, 7:14 am

    I love working with batiks, but i always gravitate to cottons when planning a project

  • Nanc February 1, 2017, 4:29 am
