Starting tomorrow, March 1st, I’ve asked a few of my quilting friends to share their creations with you using my Signature Collection Vincent’s Garden, by Kathy Engle of Island Batik for The Quilt Rambler. Each quilter was provided either a 2 1/2″ strip package or 10″ stack package for this Pre-Cut Challenge. I’m eager to see what each have created!
In addition to the wonderful eye-candy this week, be sure to scroll down to the bottom to enter the giveaway! Island Batik has sponsored this in part by providing not one, but two complete fat quarter sets of Vincent’s Garden, that’s 20 different fat quarters! As a bonus I’ve added a yard of either the light background (Sprinkles) or the dark background (solid Black). These two giveaways are for US residents only.
Not wanting to leave anyone out, I’m sponsoring a PDF giveaway that is open internationally as well as to US residents – one randomly drawn quilter will receive digital copies of my three patterns designed for this beautiful collection. Details are at the end of this post! The giveaway ends March 6th with the winners given a 48 hour to respond to verify their information. This is going to be sew much fun!!
Here is the schedule for the week. Actual links will be updated daily once the postings are live. Notice that you may enter the giveaway once a day – comments on each quilter’s post is highly encouraged – we all love show and tell! While not required, each of us would appreciate a like and follow across our social media platforms!

Mostly I work on quilts, big and small. I enjoy cutting fabrics into 2.5″ squares and making quilts so that is what I would most likely use a nice fat quarter bundle on~ thanks for sharing your ideas and the blog hop!
Thanks for joining in – those 2.5” squares would be easily cut from the 2.5 strip set too ☺️ I just love precuts – strips, stacks, fat quarters! Can’t get enough!
Found you via Brenda @ Songbird Designs. She did a fantastic Quilt for this blog hop. Your fabric collection is fantastic. What would I make? I have to “hold the fabric” a minute and let it speak to me. I am trying some smaller projects, wall hangings, and the colors speak of summer time to me! So, I guess, a summer wall hanging.
Isn’t Brenda’s quilt adorable! I’m like you – I need to let the fabric percolate a bit – but something summer is always at the top of the list ?
I love the colors in this fabric!
They are indeed bright and happy!
Love your fabric usage. I would make a quilt!
Table runner and napkins
I have just the pattern for you Shirley – actually two – Never Alone has a bonus table runner included, or you could use the pattern Simply Celebrate or even Wheels on the Bus! Okay, that’s three. I’ll help you with those napkins too (grin)
I hope you will make a quilt with these fabrics – I think it would be lovely
Love the colors in this collection. Would love to use it with a Studio 180 pattern
They work perfectly with Studio 180 Design patterns and companion patterns!
What a gorgeous bunch of fabrics! This calls for a bargello or rainbow quilt of some sort!
Bargello would be fun indeed! Check out a previous post on Vincent’s Garden where one of the Island Batik Ambassador’s actually make two bargello quilts… the design possibilities are endless!
I’m looking forward to seeing all the quilts that are made by the participants. I would make at least one quilt for donation.
Donation quilts are so important – I can imagine the cheer a quilt with these fabrics would bring to any recipient. Thanks for joining in the fun – I’m sure you will be pleased each day as they are posted!
I would make a throw quilt for my family room–I love your batiks!!
I love the batiks too! And a throw quilt is always a welcomed addition to a family room!
These fabrics would be great in a wedding ring quilt- I want to cross that one off my bucket list!
Which background fabric would you use? I’m thinking either the light sunflowers or the beautiful lime green!
Very pretty I think a disappearing nine patch would be really pretty
Oh! That would indeed be fun with these bright fabrics!
I would make a quilt for my daughter .
And she would love it!
I would make a quilt to drape over my boring wheat-colored couch. I love batiks, and I’m also enchanted by the name of this fabric line. I’ll think of Vincent whenever I look at it! Thanks for hosting this wonderful giveaway, and thanks for this blog hop. I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone makes!
There is so much “Vincent” in this collection – from the iconic starry night to the sunflowers and wheat elements from his paintings. I’m so pleased you are joining me for this blog hop!
Such a vibrant collection! If I won, I’d make a lap quilt using a pattern I saw recently in APQ, which resembles tiles and really gives the fabric a lot of room to shine because I think this collection (like all Island Batik collections, really) deserves attention. I have a niece who is competing in the Nationals in an ethics debating competition and I think that is deserving of a quilt, don’t you?
Indeed I do, everyone deserves a quilt! And I agree, this collection deserves attention! Can’t wait to see what you make with it!
These fabrics are beautiful. They would make a wonderful quilt.
They are beautiful indeed – so many quilts have been made to showcase this design – check out previous posts to see what the Island Batik Ambassadors have made as well as my Island Batik design team. This week’s hop will showcase other patterns and designs to further inspire you!
Gorgeous fabrics. Not sure what I would make. I’m a fairly new quilter so look forward to ideas.
I think you will find plenty of ideas this week on the blog hop! Can’t wait to see what you decide to make next!
Great colors. They would make a beautiful New York Beauty quilt.
? that’s a splendid idea ?
Most definitely make a quilt! I would have to have the fabric in front of me to decide what pattern I would use.
I hear ya! It’s interesting how the fabric speaks to us ☺️
I would make an art quilt.
That sounds amazing
I really love a disappearing nine patch but I like a lot of the patterns from Missouri Star that would this fabric would be great with
It’s a very versatile collection – I’ve made numerous quilts already and have a couple more that I’d like to do.
If I won this fantastic grand prize, I’d made a Cleo quilt…I think the fabrics and colors would be perfect for it!
duchick at gmail dot com
I’m not sure what that is, but I do know these fabrics play nicely together and will be perfect for any of your projects!
?I get by with a little help from my friends ? they are so creative!
I would make a quilt.
And it would be beautiful
Gorgeous fabrics! I would love to make a bargello quilt with them.
Bargello quilts are delightful
I would make a funky, arty pet portrait – batiks are fabulous for that and pet portraits don’t have to be in the “real” colors!
That sounds like sew much fun!
Congrats on a beautiful line Karen! I’m not eligible for the fat quarters, but I’d make a quilt for a comfort quilt, probably use Roseanne’s design!
Thank you for hopping along – I hope you registered for the PDF patterns! It’s so sad that international mail is so costly. Sigh.
I’ve already ordered the pattern you made for this fabric line! I can’t wait to make the quilt.
I can’t wait to see it!! ?
I would make a quilt using the Ferris Wheel pattern by The Pattern Basket. The fabrics are gorgeous!
That looks like a fun pattern and would be fabulous in Vincent’s Garden fabrics!
These projects are great
Lots of inspiration that’s for sure!
They would be good for a spring, flowery, appliqued quilt.
Indeed it would!
I would love to make a new quilt for my bed with these batiks – something tropical!!!
I hear you girlfriend! Tropical is my middle name!
I would make a lap quilt for my 88 year old mother’s birthday that is coming up. I would use the left overs to make quilted scrap backpacks for the local women’s shelter.
I find that quilters are such generous souls!
I would make a bed quilt using one of the turning twenty quilt patterns.
Those are great patterns, I’ve made the original Turning Twenty and the Turning Twenty Again…may have to dust off the patterns and make another one!
These fabric colors are so pretty!!! I love what I’ve seen on the hop so far. I’m thinking these colors would love to be 6 or 8 pointed stars; that’s what I think I’d do if I got to play with these lovelies!
I would love to remake some of my previous patterns in Vincent’s Garden…Enchanted Stars or Perhaps Wheels on the Bus…so many designs sew little time
This collection is so bright and cheery! I’m not sure what I would make if I win – maybe a throw – it would be a great spirit lifter with these colors!
Yep, bright colors during a dreary winter are the perfect combination!
What a fun, bright cheerful collection. If I won the fabric I woul be making a quilt for my bed; a curvy log bag in which would be so fun and cheerful and brighten my world after a year of Covid, surgeries and being isolated. Colour sure helps. Thank heavens we have fun blog hops to pick up our spirits and keep us entertained.
It has been a difficult year for so many. A cheery bed quilt does indeed perk up the spirits. I’m glad you have joined me this week on the blog hop!
Such beautiful fabrucs! I think I would use these for a butterfly quilt.
Love butterflies, I think that would be stunning!
There are so many wonderful patterns out there, perhaps I would whip up one for a donation quilt.
My local girlfriend uses scraps from guild members to make 4 donation quilts a month. Now that Vincent’s Garden is shipping to local stores I can share my scraps with her from this collection. I can’t wait to see what she makes. Quilters who make donation quilts have a special place in this world that’s for sure!
Karen, this has been a very inspirational blog hop…so many great ideas! Thanks for including me! I’ve really enjoyed seeing everyone’s post. I can think of SEW many things for which to use a fat quarter bundle of this fantabulous fabric!! LOL
I’m thankful you could join me. Wouldn’t it be a hoot if you won the FQs! I’m sure someone is going to be very happy when notified that they have happy mail coming their way!
All of the quilts for the Blog Hop are so different but all so beautiful!
It’s truly amazing isn’t it!
