To Market, To Market...

The annual trek to Quilt Market in Houston has begun and, although I will not be making the trip, I am thrilled that one of the projects I made for Island Batik will be there!  My Felicity Table Runner and Placemats, pieced in the new "Paisley Park" collection will be in the Island Batik booth.
I am very pleased to be featured as one of their designers in the 2018 Fall and Winter Catalogue.

Paisley Park is a gorgeous collection, and I enjoyed working with these rich, vibrant colours very much.  The pattern makes a great workshop piece, as it uses strip-piecing, curved seaming, and foundation piecing in a manageable sized project.  The pattern is distributed by Island Batik, so if you are in Houston, stop by their booth to order the pattern for your shop.

 You can check out the entire catalogue here.


  1. Oh Karen, how exciting! Wouldn't it be fun to attend Market?! If I was a shop owner, I would want everything! How would one ever make choices! I've just looked through their catalogue.. the collections they put together are soooo beautiful.

  2. Maybe you’ll get there one day. Houston is crazy big. Not one of my favorite Tx destinations.

  3. How exciting! I expect it's going to show up in lots of shops. And on lots of dinner tables! Those placemats are beautiful.

  4. Congratulations on your project/pattern heading to market as well as having a quilt featured!
