Kismet Fabric / Island Batik and a Giveaway!

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.

  12. Janice

    5535 turquoise is my favorite, but the kind of jade green matches my home better, so I’m not sure. Probably a combination!

    I like #2883.

  16. L KRAMER

    Who can pick? I love them all. So bright and cheery!

  17. Laura

    My favorite is 5875. The soft blending of colors is an abstract I could get lost in. The possibilities of what or where it is, a journey in a print.

  18. Barbara

    I love them all, and the quilt is beautiful. If I have to choose, any of the blues would be my pick. Thanks for sharing.

  19. Sherry Phillips Creech

    821904455 the way the color so finely stands out against the dark, it was difficult as I loved all the colors

    They are all soooo pretty! 821902883, the teal is my favorite, though. Thanks so much!

    My fav is is 884 – the aqua/ purple with flowers. It’s hard to pick just one,

    My favorite colors are purple and teal. I have challenged myself to step out of my comfort zone and use colors that are totally opposite.

  26. Glenda K. Beckham

    My favorite is 821901884. I love the mixture of different colors of blue. They are all very pretty and bright. I would love to make a patchwork tacked quilt using all of them. I think it would be a beautiful quilt.
