Show Your Stripes Blog Hop

I was trying to decide what I wanted to do for Carla of Creatin' in the Stick's Show Your Stripes Blog Hop.  I was looking through my batiks and I didn't have something that definitely screamed stripes.  But I did have a curvy stripe print (you see it in the big flower) that I thought would be fun.  So I designed a tall skinny flower.  I wanted to hang it in a narrow spot in my hallway.  I of course went digging in my Island Batik stash.



I also decided it would be fun to put some stripes on the vase and use stripes as a quilting pattern.  If you look closely you can see how the block is separated up into sections of different background fillers.

Take a close look at the fun curvy stripes!

Stripes can be such fun. 

I hope you get to quilt today!

  4. Now that’s creativity with the stripes! I even see some stripes in the leaves fabric print. Quite clever of you. The flower is grand and perfect for a narrow wall space. Your batik selections are so pretty and vibrant and perfect for a floral. I love the changes in the quilting.
