Half of the Island Batik Ambassadors are participating in a blog hop this month. There will be weekly round-ups highlighting the Ambassadors and their projects. There will also be a weekly giveaway for one of the featured collections of the week.
The fabrics featured in this A Piece of ... blog hop are from the Summer 2019 collections that will be available in quilt shops soon.
Here is my lap-sized quilt: A Piece of the Ocean.
I wanted to create a design that showcased all the great prints in this collection. The internet, once again, provided inspiration -- hexagons and triangles. The triangle placement is random, and I was a bit worried while I was piecing as I wasn't sure how it would look when finished. No need to be worried...I love it!
Island Batik Islander Summer 2019 collection was created by Kathy Engle. It features 20 fabrics in a variety of colours and prints. Look at those bubble prints. 😍
I used the Accuquilt Half Hexagon 4.5 inch die to cut the yellow hexagons. I didn't have a triangle die, so I used my Hex N More ruler.
Hobbs Heirloom Premium 80/20 batting - what can I say? I love this batting.
I used Aurifil #2892 Pine to sew on the binding
There were two great prints in the collection that were too large to be cut into triangles. So I made a matching pillow to showcase this wondeful octopus. I couldn't bring myself to quilt through his face.
I put the turtle print on the back and used Aurifil #2975 Brass to hand sew the binding.
