Island Batik Blog Hop

Welcome to the Planes, Trains and Automobiles Blog Hop by the Island Batik Ambassadors! I am honored to be an Island Batik Ambassador. The hop started on February 15 and goes until March 4.



Today is my day to show you the absolutely lovely French Roasted collection by Kathy Engle, so grab your passports and come with me to Paris where we can have coffee at a French café. Please bring your coat for it is a chilly 42 degrees F.



To enjoy our stay at a Paris Café fully, you must understand the rules of the café culture.

Sitting and sipping is the point.
Smoking is prohibited
To call the waiter, say Monsieur!

Sit, sip and enjoy! 






The pattern for the coffee cup blocks can be found at Connecting Threads. I added 2 1/2" sashing and  cornerstones. 

The French Roasted collection is available now, check with your favorite quilt shop.

I also made a table runner for a blog hop back in October which I also used the French Roasted collection. You can find the post about this table runner here .


I am having a giveaway of 4 fat quarters from the French Roasted collection. Please just leave me a comment and let me know if you have ever been to Paris or your favorite place to visit.
