The Island Batik blog hop Planes, Trains & Automobiles continues today. My post for the blog hop will be tomorrow but I couldn’t resist showing a few things that I have made with the beautiful French Roasted collection that will be shown today on the blogs listed below.
Many of the ambassadors received a bundle of these fabrics to make paper-pieced Celestial Star blocks for a quilt that was given to designer Kathy Engle. I also made a practice block first celestial star block.
I also made a table runner for my AccuQuilt guest post last month and did a tutorial on it, you can find theRoasted Coffee table runner tutorial.
The night before last, I was talking to someone about my mini Scattered and I made a couple test blocks…..then a few more…..and then it was a challenge to see if I had enough of the collection left to make the mini quilt. I did and yesterday I got it all quilted.
I had just a little bit left so I made up a couple blocks with them and the rest was cut up into 1 1/2, 2 or 2 1/2 inch scrap blocks.
Here is the mini quilt and table runner out on the deck.
I had to take a picture of Iggy keeping warm with a new quilt. You can barely see all the geese sitting out on the ice……I’m ready for Spring!
