Four Seasons Blog Hop with Island Batik

Wednesday, January 10, 2018

Welcome to the Four Seasons Blog Hop with Island Batik! The Island Batik Ambassadors are showing you all the newest collections from Island Batik all month long! (And there are lots of giveaways too!)

Be sure to visit all the stops on the blog hop to see what's new with Island Batik (blog schedule at the bottom of this post). There are a few stops each day all month long - and giveaways galore!



Island Batik sent me a fat quarter bundle of the Alpine Ice collection to play with for the blog hop. Alpine Ice ships to stores in April, so be sure to tell your local quilt shop to order it!


Island Batik Alpine Ice fabrics

The collection has 19 fabrics: some in the blue colorway and some in the gray. It even includes some fabulous neutrals! (I think the dark two-tone gray dot called "Gun Metal" is my absolute favorite!)

This was actually my second time using this collection! Last September, I shared my Snowfall quilt using the same Alpine Ice fabrics. (You can read more about that quilt and find a link to the pattern here.)

Sometimes it's challenging to use the same fabrics in more than one quilt, but this time, I knew exactly the design I wanted to use for the second quilt! (And both of the quilts are snowflake designs!)


Olfa rotary circle cutter and Island Batik Alpine Ice fabrics

I started by cutting circles and rings from my fusible (I used Heat-N-Bond Lite) using an Olfa rotary circle cutter. After pressing the fusible to the fabric, I used the circle cutter to cut most of the circles needed for the quilt. The circle cutter can not cut circles smaller than 1 1/2" in diameter, so I had to trace and cut the smaller sized circles by hand.

It was fun to watch the quilt progress as the circles were added to the background!

Once the top was done, I pin basted the quilt with Fairfield 80/20 cotton batting.

I used my free motion foot on my Juki TL-2010Q to stitch just inside the raw edge of each circle. I used 50wt Aurifil in Grey #2605, Dark Grey #1246, Medium Blue #2735, and Natural White #2021 for this, as they were the closest colors I had in my thread stash to the fabric colors.

For quilting, I decided a circle quilt needed more circles! I used 50wt Aurifil in Natural White #2021 (and when that ran out, I switched to White #2024) to quilt large pebbles in the negative space around the outside of the snowflake.

I didn't quilt in the middle of the snowflake since I had quilted it by stitching down the circles. I'm still not sure about that. I might go back and add some pebbles if I'm still thinking about it in a couple days.

For binding, I used scraps of the blue fat quarters cut into 2 1/4" wide strips. I machine stitched it on with the Medium Blue Aurifil.

I used the dark blue snowflake print from the Alpine Ice collection for the back, along with a white neutral to make it large enough.

  1. Your quilt is fabulous! I have started to tackle my UFO projects. I finished quilting and applying the binding for the first one on my list. I have a little more than 1/2 of the binding to finishing hand stitching down. Then I will be able to check that one off. And, then start working on completing as many UFOs as I can.

  6. My quilting resolution for this year is to finally finish the never-ending quilt! :) It is a BOM that I started in 2005. It went in time out for a while because my skill set wasn't up to the blocks in the pattern and I got frustrated. I have been hand quilting it over the last four winters. Am up to the borders, so the end is in sight!

  19. Both of your quilts are glorious in the Alpine batiks! When I first looked at the circles, I wondered how you did that, but your tutorial cleared that up. It is like a huge jewel of ice! On my quilty list for 2018 is at least 2 UFO's...one is a batik bed runner that needs quilting and the other is a large Postcard From Sweden project!

  35. Holy smokes, I fell for this quilt the minute I saw it. Totally gorgeous. Of course, you used the colors perfectly. I am definitely adding your blog to my Feedly list. I can't wait to read more about your work. I've already started one of my goals and that is to make a Patchwork of the Crosses quilt. I joined a group and signed up for a monthly package of papers and fabrics to make 3 cross blocks. I love hand stitching but I can see that this is going to be a huge accomplishment.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Wow! Amazing quilt you've created. That looks like it was a lot of work, but SO gorgeous so well worth that time I'd say.

  86. I usually look at Facebook and hoe, hum about the quilts and patterns. However, upon seeing your pattern, I stopped in my tracks--whoa horsie--this is a totally cool pattern, different, not to complicated, FUN,---I can go on and on. It's wonderful, congratulations-would love to win this pattern. Your use of colors is "spot on". To answer your question, I hope to finish a paper piece pattern for my sister this year. I'm amazed at how long it takes to make ONE block. My sister will ask, "How's it going?". I'll say, "Well, I worked in sewing room for 4 hours today and got 1/2 of one pattern block done". Really? Oh, well, that's what I hope to do: get that quilt finished quickly. cswsand50@hotmail.com carolyn w.

    One of my resolutions, or maybe it's a realization, is no more bed size quilts. I do not enjoy attaching borders with a 90 inch seams or wrestling to square up a top that's 100 inches, so why do it? No more, this is my hobby and I need to enjoy it.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Oh, man!! That is just amazing! I am so in love with your circle snowflake quilt. Normally I'm a needle-turn, hand-stitch kind of applique person, but this fusible project has me rethinking that. As for quilting goals in the new year, well, my main goal is to become proficient with the long arm machine I bought last March, and that's going to require that I crank out a lot of simple tops and FINISH THEM. Again, fusible applique projects like yours are looking really attractive!

Most are beautiful and I truly admire all these ladies for their artistic approach to quilting, but this quilt has ME all over it!! I would love to have the pattern!

  119. wow that is absolutely stunning - it reminds me of a crochet diagram, or a piece of lace and it's a snowflake without being twee - gorgeous!

  120. Beautiful! I showed my hubby and now he wants me to make one for him in blues and golds and silver. However my first goal of 2018 is a UFO from last year - a queen size quilt for my daughter.

  123. My only quilty goal this year is" No buying fabric". I have to use my stash. Everyone I know made fun of my sewing room New Years Eve. It ended up with me pledging not to BUY any until the end of the year or I had used up all my stash. lol, it will be the end of the year. BUT,,,,,, no one said I couldn't win fabric. hehehehehe

  124. This is fantastic!!! You really made these fabrics sparkle with this design, Laura, and I look forward to the pattern. My biggest quilty resolution of the year is to gain full confidence on my longarm and pick up customers to make it start earning its keep.

  126. Lovely quilt. I really like the snowflake fabric in the backing. No quilty resolutions here. I'm just going with the flow, trying new things and not worrying about what gets done.

  127. What a beautiful quilt. I love the design and colors. My quilts resolution is to try alternating ufos and new projects.

  128. This year I want to balance the quilts I make for gifts, for charity, for our family (practical quilts), and my passion projects--the ideas that come to me and I get excited about. After two weeks I've already noticed that while I've made kennel quilts and worked on gifts and finished up a quilt for our family use, I have not done anything that could be called a "passion project". I need to change that habit right now.

    Absolutely Gorgeous! My Quilting resolution for 2018 is to make some charaty quilts for Childrens Medical Center the Cardiac Clinic or The Ronald McDonald house. They were there for me/us when my son was born with Congenital heart defects at birth and has had multiple Heart surgical procedures. Mariecaudillo@att.net

  132. Oh my goodness! I love the blue blue blue in this quilt! I'm going to finish a couple of UFO's and maybe start scrappy twin sized quilts for my granddaughters new bedroom. Her mom wants a girly vintage look in her room.

  133. I don't push myself into resolutions but do have a plan for the year. To finish and gift a purple Labyrinth quilt for ds and dil, make a "super heroes" quilt for 4yo great grandson, and a beautiful gray and silver table runner for dgd. If I meet these plans I will be satisfied. Your snowflake quilt is amazing. Lots of work with circles and you did a fabulous job! Thanks for sharing it!I have grown to love blue for winter pieces. Have a blue and silver table runner to finish that I started this Christmas. Hoping I get that done also!

  134. Wow! That is quite a quilt! My quilty goals for this years are to quilt a couple of tops that I have had ready for awhile and to attempt a pattern with a block I have never tried before.

  138. This quilt is stunning!!! I'm working on a blue & white pineapple wedding quilt for my daughter's May wedding. The scraps would be put to good use :-) My resolution this year is finish one UFO before starting each new project. We'll see if it works! tazelaar@mtcnet,net

  139. LOOOOOVE IT!!! Must get myself one of those circular cutters <3

  140. Quilty resolution: use twice as much yardage as I buy for the year, and start by buying no fabric for the first 6 months. Also gonna play with TEXTURE this year.
    Thanks for linking up with TGIFF--what an awesome quilt!

  141. I LOVE it!
    Resolution? To start AND finish a quilt!

  142. My quilty resolution last year was so successful (I finished all my half-finished quilt projects) that I'm continuing with the next logical step. This year, 2018, I will finish all my planned quilts -- you know, the ones you've already purchased the fabric for and have a specific pattern idea in mind. I've given up on ever keeping the resolution I made for four years in a row -- to organize my studio and donate everything I no longer need. It's a very slow process when you are a creative type.

  143. My quilty resolutions are the same as every year--piece from my stash & quilt some of those tops! I do allow myself to buy background fabric for a quilt if I don't have anything that really works in my stash!

    ReplyDelete
  144. What a gorgeous quilt! I love all the circles and the quilting is just what it needed! As far as resolutions, I want to finish the projects I have started. I think it is in the neighborhood of 6 or 7 that are all in various stages. I am trying hard not to start a new project but I am being very tempted! Especially after seeing you wonderful quilt!

  146. I love your quilt, it was a great idea for using the Alpine Ice collection. My goal for this year is to complete many if quilts I've already started. I just finished sewing the blocks together and trimming a quilt top from a 2012 mystery class I took. I just need to sew the borders on. Yeah!

  147. I would love to win. My resolution is to clean out my sewing/craft room, reorganize it so I can actually sit down and sew/quilt again. I got a nice used computerized sewing machine that I haven't had a chance to try out yet.

  148. I just purchased the circle cutter. Your picture stopped me cold. I love the colors and of course the circles My resolution is to try a circle quilt.

  149. My resolution is the usual one: clean and organize my sewing room and then tackle my UFO’s. But the overriding rule is to enjoy the tasks.
    I would love to win the leftovers. I am challenged by BLUE, never sure what complements what. Perhaps a touch of color blindness or fear of the quilt police. I think i’m ready to face this challenge.

  151. The eight pointed star quilt is fantastic! It would definately go to the top of my to do list! Since I probably won't be fortunate enough to win....how do I get a copy of the pattern. This pattern really talks to me! Until then, back to finishing the Christmas presents that didn't quite get finished before the end of the year. AnnLouise Pugh cronelv@pughlitzer.com
