Calling all Deb Tucker Fans!

Deb Tucker's Studio 180 rulers are favorites for many of us. I remember being so thrilled after finding her Wing Clipper rulers many years ago. I could never make decent flying geese until then.

Deb has added many new rulers over the years and is now also designing BOM programs for island Batik, which of course, take advantage of the rulers she's designed.

Fair Isle ~ What a Stunning Quilt!
What's Included in the Program?

Our program includes all the original Island Batik fabrics as shown above, as well as a boo-boo bundle of extra fabric, binding, coordinating backing, and our famous cutting diagrams!

There are several Deb Tucker Studio 180 rulers required, which we can supply if you don't already have them.
Coordinating Pillowcases Available!

We've created a few pillowcase kits to go with your Fair Isle quilt as we think coordinating pillowcases "finish the look"! If you have other fabric combinations you'd like, just let us know which fabrics and the size you want and we can make it happen for you.
The Collection

Here's a peak at the beautiful batiks in the Bellingham Bay collection used for the Fair Isle Quilt.
When Does Fair Isle Start?

We have not yet received our fabric shipment, but are hoping we can make our original start date in late January. Island Batik is waiting on a container on a ship somewhere off the coast of California that has a few of the remaining 45" fabrics and our 108" wide backs for this project. As soon as we receive our fabric, we will cut kits.

Don't Wait ~ We Limited Slots Left!

This is a very popular program, so if you are thinking about this project, please sign up right away to reserve your spot. You can start as soon as we have your kits cut, or anytime in the future. If you take the complete set of kits at one time, we'll pay the shipping to any US destination.
