Kismet Fabric / Island Batik and a Giveaway!

Share the love!

Today I’m excited to talk about the Kismet fabric line by Tammy (fyi- she was a designer for the IAQ in the past!).
Her fabric line is with Island Batik. It is so full of color and is the perfect thing for spring quilting.
Everything around us is kind of drab….and we are just emerging into the Spring weather- yay!

This fabric was the perfect combination for the Blooming Baskets quilt which was the quilt featured in the 2020 Patchwork Planner.

Here’s a quick look at the fabric line: Kismet


The colors are so vibrant and fun! It really was so much fun to use in the quilt.

In addition to the fabric, there is a thread collection as well to match!!! The colors are PERFECT!

You should really get yourself a pack of these if you use color in your quilting.
