Vincent’s Garden Pre-Cuts Blog Hop Schedule

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!

    • TheQuiltRambler says:

      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!

  2. stitchinggrandma says:

    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.

    • TheQuiltRambler says:

      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.

    • TheQuiltRambler says:

      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!

  4. Angie V says:

    These fabrics would be great in a wedding ring quilt- I want to cross that one off my bucket list!

  5. Pam says:

    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!

    • TheQuiltRambler says:

      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!

  6. Beth Talmage says:

    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?

    • TheQuiltRambler says:

      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!

  7. Sarah Boyce says:

    Gorgeous fabrics. Not sure what I would make. I’m a fairly new quilter so look forward to ideas.

  8. annalutzbrown says:

    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

  9. Kathy E. says:

    If I won this fantastic grand prize, I’d made a Cleo quilt…I think the fabrics and colors would be perfect for it!

  10. shirtails says:

    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!

  11. Sandra says:

    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!

  12. Suellen M Jennings says:

    I’ve already ordered the pattern you made for this fabric line! I can’t wait to make the quilt.

  13. Lizzie Mae Rasmussen says:

    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.

  14. thedarlingdogwood says:

    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!

  15. dhowardvt says:

    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!

  16. Carol Andrews says:

    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.

  17. Vicki in MN says:

    There are so many wonderful patterns out there, perhaps I would whip up one for a donation quilt.

    • TheQuiltRambler says:

      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!

  18. Brenda @ Songbird Designs says:

    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

    • TheQuiltRambler says:

      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!
