Welcome to another post for the Planes, Trains and Automobiles blog hop featuring the Island Batik ambassadors! We have really had a great time and there have been many beautiful projects. The hop continues through Friday. When I saw the Lavish collection of fabrics all I could think about was hopping on a plane and going somewhere warm……I’m tired of winter! #PTAbloghop
How about somewhere with beautiful sunsets and maybe mountains! I am still playing working with bargello designs like I did when I created my Caravan quilt (if you missed my giveaway, it is still going on so be sure and enter).
I was having so much fun……I decided to make another wall hanging with my leftover pieces. I never know what I’m going to come up with when I use the scraps but I sure enjoy it!
This was the bundle of Lavish fabrics.
Here is a look at the fabrics pieced together for the first step.
You can see other fabrics in the Lavish collection on Island Batik’s website and also find a store near you that is carrying them. I would love to have a bolt of each of them!
The weather was nice enough that I could put them out on the deck, it was too windy to take them down by the river. Do you like bargello designs? I can see a pattern coming…..even Builder Bob liked these! Wouldn’t kits be fun with these beautiful fabrics?
On the little one I did a free motion flower in the center with a orange thread.
All of my piecing, applique and quilting was done on my vintage 15-91 Singer sewing machine.
Be sure and visit Joan from Moose Stash Quilting, she is also taking part in the blog hop today.
Many times you will see photos of Iggy the Eagle with my quilts. Well Bullwinkle decided to come outside and get in on the action. I bought him as a birthday gift for Builder Bob about 10 years ago. Once I took the picture we brought him back in…..he isn’t used to the cold.
If you have any suggestions for name for my quilt pattern please share it with me and if I use it you’ll get a free pattern! Thanks again for visiting!
Be sure and also enter this great giveaway from Island Batik if you haven’t already done so. Many of the ambassadors will also be having giveaways.
