Modern Mini Applique Block 90

If you look at this one upside down the pink fabric looks like antlers.  Or high heels?  I dunno.  But I like it!

I hope you get to quilt today!

Island Batik Ambassador's Inspired by Nature Blog Hop

I am so excited to share my quilt made with Island Batik's new Tiki Punch collection. It is designed by Kathy Engle for Kate Colleran of Seams Like A Dream Quilt Designs. This collection reminds me of being on a tropical island. It made me smile the whole time I was working with it. I received a bundle of half-yards of this collection and I decided to make a quilt for my bed for the first time ever as an Ambassador. It was a personal challenge to try to use up as much of the fabric from the collection as possible and I'm happy to say that I did in this 90 inch square quilt.

I had a blast sewing with these gorgeous tropical fabrics and my favorite Aurifil thread!  I quickly got to work cutting pieces mostly with my Accuquilt Go.

When I realized how BIG this quilt was going to be I enlisted the help of my mother Kathy who has a long arm business.  I am so glad I did.  She had fun quilting butterflies and feathers all over my quilt using Hobbs 80/20 Cotton/Poly batting of course.

My neighbors just put in this new light post....I may be borrowing it a lot for picture taking!
