It has been quiet on here lately, I know, but what better way to get back in the swing of blogging then showing off a project made with beautiful Island Batik fabrics! This month's event was to create a crib quilt, and of course I knew just what design to use.
Since its creation, I've wanted to make a version of Playful Pachyderm in batiks, but of course I couldn't decide on a single color way so.........I made 3. Yes, you read that right, I made 3 different color ways.
Have you ever just needed to finish something for your sanity? Like the projects just keep piling up but nothing seems to get finished? This is the state I found myself in when starting the March Island Batik Ambassador project. The theme, like last year in March, was Mini Madness. It had to be smaller than 24" x 24", and had to be foundation pieced or english paper pieced.
Today is my day to showcase the Island Batik Blushing Blooms collection for the New Beginnings Blog Hop. Now when we were told the theme, I sighed so hard my mom heard me on the other side of the city. New Year's Resolutions, and New Year New Beginnings, and anything along those lines, that happens around the beginning of the year doesn't jive for me.
Welcome to the third day of the SewPro Stars Blog Hop. Today I’m up and very excited to share about SewPro and show you my project. Go ahead and grab a cup of coffee (or tea if you prefer) and I hope you enjoy.
Now, I know it is not July, but I’m going to pretend it is, because where in the world did this year go? Has it gone by fast for anyone else? Either way, I had originally hoped to get my Ambassador Christmas in July project quilted before the end of July, but oh well. This is why I start my Christmas projects in July. That way I may actually get them done in time to use for Christmas. What time of year do you work on your holiday projects?
Happy Halloween! I'm cutting this Island Batik Ambassador event pretty close (it is still October where I am). I guess it is appropriate that my project theme is Midnight at the Pumpkin Patch! We were asked to create something with pumpkins in it, or using the colors of the pumpkin patch.
Lately I have been suffering from a severe case of writer’s block when it comes to blogging. I sit down and stare at the screen, and stare, and stare, and stare. I want to be more active on the blog so I’m going to show a couple of small things I worked on, current news, and eventually put up posts about the mini swaps I’ve been participating in.
Today I have the honor of participating in the Folk Art Quilted Traditions Blog Hop to celebrate the release of Suzy Webster's new book. Her Folk Art Quilted Traditions book is applique designs based off of Hungarian embroidery. Today is the 3rd day of the hop so if you've missed the first 2 days the links are located at the bottom or the post along with a giveaway from Suzy.
Introducing my new design, Frequency! It was inspired by the oscillation of electrical currents so I thought a picture near power lines would be fun. My husband was a great sport and let me drag him around to hold this quilt. Thankfully it was overcast which is great for pictures!
