The quilt uses the Triangle in a Square block and I have included a template in the pattern for you to use.

I actually used my AccuQuilt electronic die cutter and the #55027 – 3″ Triangle in a Square die which makes fast work of cutting out the pieces. You can also use the Tri-Rec templates if you have them. I used the Island Batik Splash collection which is no longer available.

The quilt measures 56″ x 56″ but could easily be made bigger. The pattern features full-color diagrams and includes full-size applique flowers.

I just did a simple stipple quilting pattern for the quilting and my applique was done with free motion quilting also.

Quilts made with Island Batik fabrics by Connie Kresin Campbell

River Swirls was one of four quilts made with Island Batik fabrics that were part of the Spring/Summer 2016 collections. It won’t be long before we will have snow and ice along the river. Our weather has still been beautiful, how about yours? We went to the cities yesterday and finally bought a new table for our kitchen. It is a small square one and…..I need to make new placemats. I’ll share them when I do!
