Welcome to the Getaway Blog Hop!

2018 Island Batik Ambassadors have been busy with some secret sauce sewing lately ... and today I can share mine!  

Boho is a stunning new fabric collection by Island Batik, made with the happiest of purples, pinks, oranges and yellows with a splash of turquoise.  The bold colors pair so well with Brick Cottage Lane {2} where they really stand out from the background.  All but two of the fabrics in the Boho collection are in this quilt.

This is Brick Cottage Lane {2} in a generous queen size.  The pattern comes in 5 sizes from Baby to King.  The queen can be oriented either direction, but in the other sizes the bricks are placed vertically.

Can you believe this quilt design is strip pieced?  The pattern includes instructions for traditional piecing as well, but strip piecing saves SO much time!

If your local quilt shop carries Island Batik fabrics, I encourage you to purchase them there.  Supporting your local shop keeps a fabric shop nearby open.  If your local shop quilt doesn't carry Island Batik fabrics, ask the shop owner to carry them.  You can also shop online for Island Batik fabrics.

The batting inside this quilt is Hobbs Heirloom Cotton, one of my favorite battings from the Hobbs collection.
