Batiks Go Retro Blog Hop

Welcome to Day 2 of the Batiks Gone Retro Blog Hop! This hop features the Batiks Gone Retro line by Tamarinis for Island Batik. Tammy Silvers, the quilter and designer behind Tamarinis, created this collection of whimsical, mid-century inspired prints in beautiful blues, teals, oranges and purples. Umm, you had me at mid-century! I especially like the starburst print:

You can click here to see the entire line.

I made my project as a table topper. This design comes from my pattern, Exclamation, which I think is a perfect fit with the angular vibe and burst effect.

Exclamation uses the Creative Grids 30-Degree Triangle Ruler that I designed. It’s a fun ruler that allows you to easily cut and piece 30-degree triangles in a wide variety of patterns. Look for Batiks Gone Retro, Exclamation and the 30-Degree Triangle Ruler at your local quilt shop.


I’m looking forward to seeing all of the Batiks Gone Retro projects during this blog hop. We are also giving away a lot of prizes! Enter via the Rafflecopter to win great prizes, including an Exclamation pattern from me, fabric, thread and more from several of the designers in the blog hop. Good Luck!
