Christmas in July - Island Batik Style

 Yes...we're half way to Christmas already!

Whether it is the traditional red and green or just a wintery scene...there are all sorts of options for creating wonderful items for the Christmas or winter season.

You've already seen a few of these from me in previous blog posts this year, but I'm going to highlight them as part of our Christmas in July here in Island Batik ambassador land.

Most of the fabrics in this Heartfelt Holiday designed by EQ's Heidi Kory are from the Holiday Happenings collection.

There is another quilt in the works with this lovely collection, but for now...just know it is.

Tinsel is a beautiful blue/white/grey collection that I used to make this Wendy Sheppard design - Winter Blues.

Both links go to the original blog post and give you many details about my construction process despite using someone else's design as a jump off to my own creation.

I've got a few Tinsel, Shaved Ice and one French Roasted Stack (2 - 10" squares of 20 fabrics each) available for purchase in my shop. Let me know if you're interested --I'm willing to ship.

We've got a heat wave going on right now in Grand Coulee, WA so it helps to look at the cooler colors of blue/white right now. I just finished a gorgeous project called "Winter Bright" that I can't wait to show you in another month, that will be coming out at Fall Market. It uses a new line called 'Frost' yes, blues/whites/greys too! This is a new pattern that will be available as soon as it releases at the end of October.

Stay cool!



  1. Love, love, love the Christmas tree. So cute and inventive, and the quilting is stunning!

  2. These are all interesting winter/holiday patterns. I'm particularly fond of the bottom one because it can be out any time of the year.

  3. Love the Christmas tree, especially the quilting on it!

  4. Always enjoy trees and yours is just wonderful.
