This quilt is from my most recent Island Batik Ambassador challenge. It was a Quilt as You Go Challenge. I made a quilt with three panels and quilted each panel similarly. Since each panel was 36 x 12 inches I didn't want to quilt them all in the same pattern as I didn't want to get bored. So I decided to put something inside a large circle (1-2 inches in diameter) and then echo the circles to create the similarity between panels.
The first panel has a partial flower/sun inside. A big curve with little bumps around the outside.
Here's a closer look. I had fun putting bubbles inside the leaves and stems and whenever I got into a space that was too small. Bubbles are always perfect for that.
For these circles I did a pumpkin seed/orange peel inside each circle. I didn't worry about how they were oriented, they were stitched however my fabric was oriented at the time. I like this one a lot.
And a closer look.
For the last design I put three feathers inside the circle. I like it, but will admit it's my least favorite of the three.
And a close up.
Here's the whole quilt all done. I love Island Batiks!
Be sure to come back tomorrow to check out the quilt I made from Christa Watson's new book Piece and Quilt with Precuts! You'll even have a chance to win an ecopy of the book!
I hope you get to quilt today (I only get to once the house is clean....)
