Island Batik Planes, Trains and Automobiles Blog Hop

Hi!
I hope you're stopping by with your favorite mode of transportation to the Island Batik blog hop!
These fabrics are currently in shops (or will be arriving soon) so make sure you get into your favorite shops and check them out!

My online friend, Phyllis of Jambearies on Etsy, has a few of the collections in stock, and is always getting more.  Check out her shop, HERE.  Also, Quilt In A Day, and Hancocks-Paducah usually carries Island Batik, too.  And there's a way to search on Island Batik, as well.  Make sure your store carries it, and tell them which collections you want to see.

Today's featured fabric isLondon Fog

I'm currently using this collection for a project I'll share next month, but let me just say that the colors are gorgeous, they work so well together, and the fabric is wonderful.  I LOVE using it, because it doesn't fray much.  You can handle the pieces without worrying you'll have tons of loose threads on the back of your quilt top to trim before layering it.  I'm always surprised when I go to another brand's fabric after working with Island Batik.  I forget about worrying about fraying, and when I use something else, and it frays (sometimes excessively) I'm surprised.  I wish all fabric companies produced a product as good as Island Batik's.

So, join the hop!  Get a chance to win some gorgeous fabrics.
