This month's Island Batik Ambassadors Challenge is called It's All Up To You. We got to pick anything! There were so many amazing choices!
I decided I wanted to play with Claudia Pfeil's gorgeous new collection called Melody. I had a ten inch stack of this beautiful springy collection. Now that I'd picked my fabric and a cream for a background, what to make?
I was chatting about this with my mom and she was talking about the hunter's star quilt she'd just made. It was so gorgeous so I decided to make one too using her Accuquilt die.
Cutting on my Accuquilt is so fast! I was doing cutting these beautiful pieces in no time at all.
I'm a pinner. Pin. Pin. Pin. It makes sending the pieces through the machine so quick and easy.
All sewn into triangles and ready to sew into block using Aurifil thread and Schmetz Needles of course!
I layered my quilt with Hobbs Batting 100% cotton batting. It's one of my favorites. Then I had fun quilting on my Handiquilter Capri. So much fun to make these swirl feathers. I did a big swirl in the middle of each background area and then feathered around it. In the background diamonds I did some continuous curve quilting. Then I added a binding by machine.
I hope you get to quilt today!
