Welcome to the last day of the Island Batik Fabrics Back To School Blog Hop. I hope you have visited all the sites and been inspired by all the amazing projects using Island Batik fabrics. Now that it’s the end of September, all the kiddos should be back in school.
My project started with these piles of the gorgeous fabric line called Zen. This line is filled with fabrics starting with the lightest, most powdery blue, into darker blues and teals all the way to a dark, spruce green. For my project I wanted a quilt that would showcase all these fabrics as each one is so pretty.
Because the fabrics are so pretty on their own I quilted simple, wavy lines diagonally across the quilt. Isn’t that blue fabric soothing?
The photo above gives a good view of the blocks that make up this quilt. The blocks are 8″ finished so the quilt finishes at 64″ x 64″. It’s a nice lap quilt.
This bench was in such a pretty setting at the park near me, with the sun shining through the trees. There were acorns all around in the grass that had dropped from the trees. Thinking about the Back To School Blog Hop and the bench reminded me that I rarely rode the bus to school, I almost always walked to school. But on the way to school me and my friends would sing silly songs and laugh the whole time.
I really hope you have enjoyed seeing all the beautiful fabric from Island Batik’s 2017 Spring/ Summer Collection throughout the month of September. Keep visiting because there are still more great projects for all the Ambassadors to share in the next few months.
Lastly, to celebrate the Island Batik Back To School Blog Hop, I am giving away this great stash builder of Island Batik fabric strips. This little package contains 2.8 yards of fabric. These little bundles are the best stash builders ever!
