The top is done! So now for the quilting! This Island Batik Ambassador Challenge has been so much fun.
I pulled out my favorite Aurifil threads of course! I have so many it's usually easy to find a match, but burgundy can sometimes be a challenge. I managed to find just the right color happily! I layered it with a piece of my favorite Hobbs 80/20 cotton/poly batting.
I did some ripples in the orange here. It's kind of hard to see. I wanted to do something simple to let the fabric pop.
However, in the white (it actually has fun gray dots on it) I wanted to do something that would be fun. I decided upon a flower sampler. Each area has a large flower, most have leaves too. All of them are different! Here are the flowers I have already quilted.
This first one looks like a dogwood bloom and I love the crazy leaves around it.
This almost looks like a blooming rose. I really like it.
To go with the theme I had to do rosebuds. I used to draw them like this when I was a kid. It was fun to quilt it and I must admit I'm a bit surprised that I'd never though of it before.
This one is totally out there....but sort of fun. Not my favorite, but I am NOT ripping it out!
I like that this flower has a triangle in the center. And the bubbly leaves were fun too.
Come back Saturday for the full reveal!
I hope you get to quilt today!
