Island Batik Ambassadors Try It! Challenge - Part Two

I LOVE working with Island Batik fabrics!  They are so bright and bold.  Be sure to check out the first part this project in the post about construction here.  I used four fun fabrics, an Accuquilt wedge die, some Aurifil thread for piecing and Hobbs 80/20 batting inside.

Once the top was together I was sitting there staring at it trying to figure out how to quilt it.  I wasn't sure.  Then my mom says, "I'll quilt it for you."  Okay, twist my arm.  So I gave it to her to longarm.  She did a fabulous job!  

She quilting lots of other gears into the design.  She used a purple air erase pen that was taking forever to go away and I wanted to get my pictures taken.  What to do?  I Googled it and found someone who used vinegar to get out the marks.  I tried it.  It worked beautifully.  Now to wash it so the vinegar can't eat away at the fabric.  But yay!  Marks gone.

I hope you get to quilt today!


  1. You two make a good team! Fun quilt, and I agree the IB colors are so pretty!

  2. Great job, Suzy - and mom. I love that raindrop fabric from Island Batik.

  3. It looks great. Well done. Glad you were able to get the marks out.
