Welcome to my day to share this new line of "Island Batik" fabric.
If these colors don't cool you down...
I don't know what will!
I searched my book collection and found a quilt pattern,
that really showed off these fun fabrics,
in "Fresh and Fabulous Quilts"
by Cheryl Brown
The colors and the secondary design are a match made in Heaven!
There's nothing more fun than quilting a project, that's colors pop like this!
Accept maybe, quilting it with a "Hobb's" product.
Their cotton batting was perfect for the job.
Have you ever tried scalloped borders?
There are templates in the book, that made these super easy.
I wish that had been the case in some of my past projects.
Just for fun, I topped them off with sunny yo-yo's!
I had a little extra fabric...
Just enough to make these petals...
and turn them into this fun flower pillow.
...and that's how my "Beat the Heat" garden grows!
It's "Sunny Side Up" all around.
Be sure to visit my fellow ambassador "Connie" over at
"Freemotion by the River" today.
She's also showing off a fabulous "Sunny Side Up" project.
Sadly, this hop comes to an end today.
Now, before you go...
there's just one more little thing...
I've got a give-away for one lucky person, too.
Check out the "Island Batik" catalog
And tell me what your favorite new line is?
til next time...
