Easter Party Quilt-A-Long Block 6

Block 6 already? 
That officially puts us past the 1/2 way point when we are done with this block!

I scream, you scream, we all scream for Ice Cream!

 And these little goodies sit on a background of "Whip Cream"
 from the Island Batik Neutrals Collection.

I don't know about you, but whip cream and ice cream...
it's heavenly to me! 

Our "Island Batik" color pallet this week is from left to right...

BE25-F1 from the Blenders Collection
111517075 from the Flower Fields Collection
111505165 from the Flower Fields Collection
111505170 from the Flower Fields Collection
111501168 from the Flower Fields Collection
111517141 from the Country Fair Collection
111505100 from the Flower Fields Collection




For the "sprinkles" on my ice cream I chose to use thread painting again.

The easiest way to make your cones come to life,
 is to draw in a few lines with a pencil and a ruler.
Now if only...
someone had placed the ruler right side up!
But you can see just how easy it is.
Those pencil lines are all covered up, when stitched.

And our official, past the half way point leaves us with this!
It's also a great point to stop for a give-a-way again!

Wouldn't you like one of these little bundles?
Leave me a comment, make sure your NOT a no-reply blogger,
and I will pick a winner next Saturday July 4th. What a better way to celebrate the day!

So grab  you threads and jump on in!

  10. If I ever see lemon ice-cream, I would buy a freezer full! Yum!
    I am inspired by how you used thread to enhance the cones and called it "thread art"...so cool! This is why I love blogs.

  11. Super cute bundles! love the batiks! maedgel@hotmail.com

  12. The cones are definitely super cute.

  13. Wonderful bundle! I love batiks, in fact I'm sure that every project I make has at least 1 batik in it and I know I have at least one 30+ inch wall hanging that is all batiks. Living in Mexico I have even gotten desperate enough to take apart some of my cotton caftans (that I made) in order to have the beautiful prints.

  14. The batiks are wonderful and the cones make me hungry. Very cute!

  15. I'm enjoying your series. As a new quilter, I'm always looking for tips, inspiration and resources. I find all of that here! Thank you!! :)
