Getaway Blog Hop with Island Batik

 It's that time of year when my husband and I take our yearly getaway to warmer temperatures in Southern Texas.  So this blog hop is the perfect venue for my quilt made with Jackie Kunkels adorable Feline Fine line of fabric. I did a huge happy dance when this fabric came in my box of beautiful fabrics from Island Batik.  I mean, I always do a happy dance when the UPS man shows up at my door with a box of fabric....but Feline Fine is so perfect for me and for the yellow cat, Bella!
Feline is so bright and cheerful, covered with all sorts of feline doodles....fishy bones, cat faces and paws, mice, flowers, kibbles....so cute!

So, here is the quilt I made with Feline Fine, using the sweet cat block by Jenny Doan at Missouri Star.  I added the heart block from EQ and away I sewed.  Very fast and simple, which it had to be as we were traveling in the RV to Texas.  Sadly, I do not have it quilted.  We have been here a week, and I just completed it yesterday with lots of oohs and ahhs from fellow RV quilters.  Oh....and Bella loves it too!




The border is made with Island Batik Checked Out which goes well with everything!  This is a great line of geometric fabric to use in your batik quilts.

This will be my last journey with Island Batik as I have stepped down from two fun filled years of fabric and quilts. I'm sad about not being a part of this wonderful group, but I felt it was time to take a little break and have some healing time.  Everyday is better and time is a great healer of all things in our lives.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit the other Ambassador Blogs!
grace and peace....Sharon
