For the last couple of days I have been working on a secret quilt project and finally finished it today. I won’t get to share it until May! I still have several other things going on but I decided I needed a little break…..quilting just for fun! Are you tired of winter? I know I am! I pulled out some of my batiks from my Island Batik scrap stash and my AccuQuilt GO! dies and started to play.
I barely have any scraps left from the Cherry Berry collection, I think I made 4 or 5 projects from it including pillows and a Scattered quilt. I am using the AccuQuilt GO! 8″ Qube Angles Companion Set which has a die for half square rectangles. AccuQuilt is running a special, free shipping for orders over $25. Click for the code.

It took no time at all to make up some blocks. I know some people don’t care to sew with batiks, I never have any problem. I use Schmetz Microtex 80/12 needles most of the time. I usually buy them up when Joanns has a 50% sale on notions.
Some the batiks were in the little 5″ strip packs that I received in my Island Batik Ambassador box. Can you tell I love bright colors!
Someone asked about the lighting in my quilt studio. When Builder Bob designed it for me he made sure to put in plenty of lights. There are still times when I need more lighting. I took the photos for this post last night around 7:30 pm when it was pitch dark outside. I have two umbrella lights that I use. Notice the step ladder, that is left out and used all the time. I also like that I can move my cutting table around and of course my sliding design wall.
The Boundless Blenders is a great addition for your stash. I bought it a couple months ago, beautiful fabrics!
Last year I took part in the Quilt Qwazy Queens blog hop and showed quite a few photos of my quilt studio. It is my happy place!
