A new pattern using Island Batiks



I have a new pattern for sale in my Craftsy shop!  This Modern Circles table runner was designed using the gorgeous Island Batik fabrics from a variety of their lines.


It's no secret that I am loving being one of their 2016 Ambassadors;-)  June's theme is Modern, it could be any size we desired.  Modern Circles is 16 x 42 and uses both piecing and applique. It's very quick and easy to make. So fun to make with these great colors.  Did you notice I made a pieced binding? I varied the length of the strips so that when the ends met you wouldn't have to be exact on the length for it to look great.


I used Hobbs Batting 80/20 with a layer of 4 oz. poly on top of that. Threads consisted of Aurifil and Superior King Tut. By doing some dense and some looser quilting the result is a great texture.
The background quilting is my version of Nemeshing that was developed by Bethanne Nemesh of White Arbor quilting.  This was the first time I tried Nemeshing, I admit I was a bit scared to start it, but I sure love how it came out!  I did use my purple air erasable marker to draw in the main curly cues and feathers so I was able to get them exactly where I wanted them. This was quilted on my Nolting Funquilter 17".




                                                            Here are the fabrics I used.
                                                 
                                                     And for the background-love the dots!

You can find the pattern in my Craftsy Shop here.
