I chose to use paper templates that I purchased at Jo Ann's. The Island Batik fabrics I chose this month are from several different collections. The background is actually 2 of their 10" stack pieces from the London Fog collection as well as the leaves and stem. The outer hexies and binding are from Lavish collection while the center hexie is Grapevine from the Green Acres Collection.
Ok close your eyes and just imagine you are petting this delicious Island Batik fabric-it's oh so sleek and wonderful feeling! I wish you could also feel the dimension on this wall hanging. Using a layer of Hobbs wool over a layer of their 80/20 gives it such character. The flower and leaves just bump out from the background which I quilted using a design from Christina Cameli. Did you notice I also had to add the 3 little prairie points on the top-they just add an extra little touch to it.
It measures 9.5" x 18.5"
You can check out a few of the other Island Batik Ambassador projects that have posted so far.
Next month will be a Modern challenge, I already know what I am going to do for that-can't wait!!
