Tammy of Tamarinis has a new fabric collection with Island Batik called Just My Type, and she's asked a dozen designers to use the fabric to have a digital quilt show!

I imported the fabrics into EQ8, then used the fabrics to color a few of my quilt patterns! I LOVE seeing the same quilt in different fabrics!

First up is my Exploding Heart quilt. I love how dramatic it looks with the dark background! I used Island Batik fabrics for the quilt on the cover of the pattern, but it has a completely different look! See it and several other colorways on this post.

Next, I tried them in the Rockslide pattern. The dark background really makes the fabrics pop like jewels!

I also wanted to see what they would look like in a Split Arrows quilt. I still used the dark color for the sashing, and it really gives the quilt a stained glass look!

If you've been around a while, you know I LOVE Island Batik fabrics! The colors are so rich and saturated, and they are a dream to sew with! Be sure to ask your local quilt shop about the Just My Type fabrics! If you like to shop online, I found them here!

  1. This is such a great idea! I love seeing fabric lines made up into different quilts. Yours looks amazing with the black background! It really makes the heart pop.

  2. I love your heart so much and so much fun seeing it in another colorway.

  3. I tried to buy the pattern but your ETSY isn't connecting.

    1. Oh no! I've checked all the links, and they seem to be working for me. Here's the link to my Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/SliceofPiQuilts/. Hope it works this time!

  4. That is my favorite of all the versions of heart patterns.
