June's the month that the Island Batik Ambassadors
are showing off their skills, with a Modern Theme.
Modern quilts are new to me, so I spent lots of time
looking at things on Pinterest.
Then that light bulb moment...
Those of you who know me, know that I am a "fabric-a-holic"!
I prefer "that" term, over "crazy hoarder"!
I keep every scrap of my Island Batiks in a giant Ziploc bag.
You just never know when you'll need...
Tell me I'm not the only one with this sickness!
I sat down and started piecing all those tiny pieces,
even drawing up a few flying geese to go along!
Here's the results...
My "Everything but the Kitchen Sink" quilt ended up at 24"x30".
Oh, I've learned a lot thru this process.
Far from perfect, but the wonky-ness,
seems to lend a bit of interest to the design.
That's my politically correct way of saying...
Oh boy, do I need more practice with straight lines!
But, do these straight lines give you fabulous tactile texture.
(If your wondering just why I keep feeling up my quiltie)
tee hee hee
As you can see, I machine quilted it. I know that most Modern quilts are
hand quilted...but lets face it, I'm not going to live long enough to do that!
I've got this on my dining room table right now.
It sure brightens up the room!
You'll find sleeves on most of my projects.
It gives me the flexibility to hang them, if I choose.
Lastly, I just couldn't help but recycle that
fabulous "Island Batik" ribbon.
Yep...they just keep me coming back to their incredible batiks!
Check them out for yourself.
Keep on Stitchin'
