Life along the river batik quilt
Welcome to my day on the Island Batik New Beginnings Blog Hop!
There is no better “New Beginning” than a wedding! I used the Lake Life collection from Island Batik to make this quilt that will be a gift for my niece who just got married this week in Jamaica. The reception will be here at the end of the month.
The quilt is 56′ x 64″
I put flannel on the back of the quilt and also used Hobbs 80/20 batting so it should be a warm and comfy quilt. Perfect for them to use while watching television or they can take it with them when they go boating.I had to wait a couple days after I finished the quilt for a day with no wind so I could take photos down by the river. The last thing I wanted was for my quilt to blow away and end up out in the river. The Mississippi is open with just a thin layer of ice along the shore. The Lake Life batik quilt is Sadie approved which is a good thing……
Because this quilt is going to a home with 3 cute dogs! I am sure they will enjoy it.I also used the Lake Life collection of batiks in my Starboard quilt.
How would you like to win some pieces from the Lake Life collection! My Giveaway is 10 pieces of fabric that are approximately 5″-6″ wide by the width of the fabric that would be perfect a small quilt project. Just leave me a comment.
The winner will be selected at the end of the blog hop.
Congrats to Debbie Clarke, you are the winner! I’ll be emailing you.
Island Batik is also giving away two batik bundles at the end of the blog hop.
