I imported the fabric swatches 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 (of course!) is my Exploding Heart quilt! I absolutely love this quilt in every fabric collection ever! I've never seen one I don't like! (You can see it in many other colorways on THIS POST.)

Next, I tried the fabrics in my Rockslide quilt. The dark background is so dramatic!

And finally is my Split Arrows pattern! This one looks so much like stained glass with the darkest color for the sashing!

If you've been around awhile, you know I LOVE Island Batik fabrics! The colors are always so rich and saturated, and they are a dream to sew with! Be sure to ask your local quilt shop about the Peacock Plumes fabrics! They are shipping to shops now, so they should be arriving soon!

Which of these digital quilts is YOUR favorite??

  1. I like all of them. Exploding heart is the best by a tiny bit.

  2. It is a toss up between Exploding Heart and Split Arrows.

  3. Definitely all of them. Beautiful colors. Great patterns.

  4. All amazing, but I do like the final one that looks like stained glass the best. It looks like opinions are split on the favorite! LOL

  5. I want to make the pattern, "Exploding Hearts". The pattern calls for fat quarters. I can only get layer cakes in the colors that I want to use. Can you tell me how many layers cakes I would need?

    1. The pattern will create quite a bit of waste if using layer cakes, as you can only cut one square for each one. You could make the blocks a tad smaller to make the layer cakes work, or I might be able to find the fabric for you as I like to hunt for deals! Please email me at Laura (at) sliceofpiquilts (dot) com, and I can help you with either option you choose!
