Contempo Fabric Line

Today 11 quilt designers are participating in the release of Kate Colleran’s new Signature fabric line, Contempo from Island Batik Fabric. If you like batik fabrics for their bright colors, astonishing patterns, durability when sewing and pressing, or that you don’t have to worry about which side is right or wrong, you’re in for a treat! I think these colors and patterns are great. I was drawn to Island Batik Fabrics in 2015 when I became an Island Batik Ambassador. They are still my go-to batiks for quilting.

Kate asked us to use the Contempo fabric swatches to design mock-ups of quilts to post on Instagram. Some of us will be posting on our blogs, too.

A Giveaway!

Kate is giving away 2 fat quarter bundles of Contempo on her blog HERE https://bit.ly/37Abze6 You have until 9 pm MT, Sunday, May 22, 2022, to leave a comment on her blog for a chance to win.

Visit all the designers’ Instagram accounts, listed below my quilt mock-ups.

I had fun adding fabrics to my recent EQ8 quilt design that involved no sewing! I show quilt mock-ups below. Each quilt uses the same block pattern layout, but the fabric color placement makes each quilt look completely different.
