Four Seasons Blog Hop-Island Batik-Giveaways!

It's the last day of the Four Seasons Island Batik blog hop.  I hope you all have been hopping along and have been inspired by all my fellow Island Batik ambassadors.  If not you still have time to catch up, but do it quickly!!!  There is a full list of participating blogs on the Island Batik blog found HERE. There are lots of giveaways happening so be sure to read all the way to the bottom of my post!

This week we are representing Fall.  The bundle Island Batik sent me is Northern Woods.  I love fall, the beautiful colors, leaves gently falling, and pumpkin pie!  You can see the full line of Northern Woods HERE.  

I was in the mood to make flying geese, and make them I did!  I used many of the colors in the line making them into a new table runner for the coffee table in our living room.  


For the piecing and quilting I used Aurifil thread that was given to us along with the fabrics. 


But of course I wasn't going to stop with just that one little project.  Our couch needed a new pillow too.  I haven't made a pillow in a long time, it was fun to do something different. 



They look so good together!

Nope I still wasn't ready to be done with these gorgeous Batiks so I decided to make another runner-one can never have too many, right?



Ok now I am done with the runners, but I wanted to use these beautiful greens in the same bundle.  So a new purse was born-


This ends my second year of being an ambassador, thanks Island Batik for believing in me and for sending me all this delicious fabric!!  So excited to be starting the third year and anxiously awaiting the new box of fabric soon:)


Ok time for the giveaways!!  I am offering these 2 stash builder rolls which are 5" x WOF for one lucky winner to experience all the goodness Island Batik has to offer! Enter through the first Rafflecopter below for these.  Sorry but with the cost of postage I am only able to offer this to commenters from the USA.

  5. My favorite thing about fall is that usually summer is so hectic and I spend a lot of time outdoors. Fall usually brings a sense of calm and things wind down so that life can be enjoyed at a slower pace. akronne17@gmail.com

  11. Wow Vicki, I thought but of course she wouldn't stop at just one runner...by the end of seeing all the gorgeous stuff you made I was chuckling! Do you sleep?! My favourite thing about Fall, now that I love it again, since we moved so much further south, is the riot of colour, and the slow warm days, and the crickets and katydids, the sometimes crisp nights...all of which we did not have in Alberta, where Fall is super-quick and super-brown and cold very suddenly!

  14. What a busy gal you've been - so many projects. Loved how you quilted the pillow; it really showcased the flying geese. Because of the use of those greens in your purse, it looked like a seamless graduated fabric. Fall is my favorite season; there is something about the air in fall that seems intoxicating.

  15. You sure were on a roll. All your projects are wonderful but I think my favourite is the flying geese runner. Thanks for sharing. Fall is my favourite season. I love the colours, smells and crisp air. Listening to the hundreds of thousands of geese fly over our home on their migration south makes the season special.

  24. ANYTHING Pumpkin flavored! After a long, hot summer, I love the cooler temps, and getting to wear a light sweater. I could use these batiks for a girls group home quilt I'll be making this summer. I decided last night to use batiks.

  25. I love the colors of fall, the golden yellows, chestnut browns, and burnt oranges. It's colors of the leaves that excite me the most about fall.

  28. Hi Vicki,
    Well aren't you quite creative with those batiks?! I LOVE the table runners - at first I thought my fav was the geese, but the second one is great too. And the pillow - it really sets off your couch nice and matches so well. It looks nice and comfy and homey. I'm glad you are an ambassador for another year! ~smile~ Roseanne

  53. Great job with all your projects. I like how your flying geese veer off the table runner instead of just going straight like expected.

    Down here in Florida Fall is a bit different. For us, I love that the humidity eases a bit and we can start going outside more often. For everyone else, I love the changing leaves, cool weather, hay rides, and corn mazes just to name a few.

  70. Ooh, I LOVE flying geese for a Fall theme -- perfect! My favorite thing about Fall is that it's the fresh start of a new school year, with brand new notebooks, fresh, sharp pencils, brand new erasers and new teachers and classes. In the Fall, I'm thinking "Maybe THIS is the year my sons will get their acts together and figure out how to get all of their work done AND turned in on time?" Because right now, in February, I'm feeling like those musicians who kept playing music on the Titanic while they watched it sink! Ah, teenage boys!!! That's why Mommy deserves so much FABRIC!

  71. After the super hot Louisiana summer, the cooler temperatures of fall are delightful. My favorite thing about fall is the sounds - geese honking as they fly high over head, leaves rustling asvthe fly with the wind, and children playing outside after school to name a few.
