Island Batik Ambassador's Star Light Star Bright Challenge - Top Complete!

The top for my Island Batik Ambassador's Star Light Star Bright Challenge is complete!  I'm sew excited to get started on the quilting!  With back to school week for teachers next week I'd better get going!



Round One - the center


Round two - the first border



Round three - the final border



I love the Moroccan Bazaar collection with this beautiful rainbow from Island Batik!  It was all cut with my GO! Cutter from Accuquilt using the 8 inch Qube and companion cube sets.  It makes it so slick!  It was also stitched with my favorite Aurifil 50 weight thread in gray.

I hope you get to quilt today!

Ukulele Inspiration

I was at my son's guitar lesson the other day and saw this set of Ukuleles.  It's a great color combo for a quilt!


A curtain


I love the wood grain on the back of this sign!

Island Batik Ambassador's Star Light Star Bright Challenge Sneak Peek


I think I am obsessed with the Moroccan Bazaar Challenge from Island Batiks.  It's the most gorgeous rainbow.  I'm using it again on this month's Star Light Star Bright Challenge.  Here's a peek at the center block of the quilt.

Dot Scatter Complete!

My Dot Scatter quilt is complete.  This was a piece of silk I used my Appliquik tools to turn and then glued to the top.  I then laid them out and quilted the circles to look like roses.  It's all done now and I love the finished project!


Here's a closeup.


I used bias binding on this for the first time and I'm so stunned with how beautifully my corners came out!


I might be a convert to bias binding all the time.  We shall see.


I hope you get to quilt today!

Star Inspiration

This week I'm inspired by these stars.  What if you cut a whole bunch of thin strips with fusible on the back and layered them like this, then cut out the star pattern?  Hmm.  I may have to try this.  It would totally make a fun Christmas ornament!  You could do it with any shape too.  Or you could do stitching lines or decorative stitches instead of strips of fabric!


I hope you get to quilt today!

Brimfield Awakening in a Rainbow - the Quilting

My Baby Brimfield Awakening in a Rainbow is complete!  I had a lot of fun stitching it.  I love how the colors really shine.


I chose to quilt big swirls inside each of the blocks.


For the background I chose to use a geometric swirl.



I hope you get to quilt today!
