Spread Love and Joy

Spreading the love through quilting was our challenge this month. How cool is that? We were to create and give away a project made with the AccuQuilt BOB (Block on Board) die, combined with the GO! Qube 8" Mix and Match Block. My BOB was Hattie's Choice and I combined it with the Susannah block.… Continue reading Spread Love and Joy

It’s All Up To You

April is a free month, "any size, any theme, any technique", for the Island Batik Ambassadors. We are to "express our creativity without guidelines." I can't wait to see what my fellow Ambassadors come up with! My mind drifted to some of my students wanting to learn to use the Studio 180 Design's Rapid Fire… Continue reading It’s All Up To You

ScrapBuster Challenge

Do you have a hard time just randomly using fabrics in a quilt? I do. I seem to need some theme. Not necessarily a fabric line, but similar colors, or brights, or civil war; I need something to tie it all together. I have a basket of Island Batik scraps from previous challenges - too… Continue reading ScrapBuster Challenge

Create for a Cause BlogHop

Today is day two of Island Batik's Blog Hop, "Create for a Cause". The fabric I used is 'Blinded by Science', by Jackie Kunkel. The fabrics are so much fun, illustrating molecules, DNA, atoms, formulas and other science representations! The charity I chose is "Sleep in Heavenly Peace". This is a local charity that builds… Continue reading Create for a Cause BlogHop

Creative Borders and Bindings

This month's challenge was to make a quilt with creative borders and and binding.  I wanted to use the Whispering Feathers 2 1/2" strips that were designed by Kathy Engle.  In order to do that, the main fabric in my borders could not be wider than 2 1/2".  No limits however on the background fabric.… Continue reading Creative Borders and Bindings

One Die Wonder with Accuquilt Project

What a month this has been!  People quarantined in their homes with the people they love (hopefully).  My husband and I have been joking "It's a good thing I like you."  Not too much has changed for us though.  My husband works from home, and I'm a quilter.  If I was locked in my home… Continue reading One Die Wonder with Accuquilt Project
