Split Arrows in Batiks

Thursday, May 16, 2024

I get to share a finish this week that was actually finished almost a year ago!! This quilt was made to show off the Reflections fabric collection by Island Batik, and it appeared in their catalog to sell the fabric. But that meant that I had to make it in secret - starting over a year ago!

It's been a few weeks since the total solar eclipse passed across the US, but I wanted to share the quilt that I made to mark the occasion!

Happy Pi Day!! 

Raw edge applique circle themed quilt for pi day

Every year, I make a circle themed quilt for Pi Day. I've been doing it since 2017, so it's definitely a tradition!

Sometimes, I get wild and crazy ideas. This is one of those times!

The Exploding Heart quilt pattern launched in 2020, and four years later, there's now a MINI Exploding Heart quilt pattern! When I was looking for fabrics that would work well for the smaller version, I was immediately drawn to Tilda fabrics. They're from Norway, and more pricey than typical fabrics. This makes them special - and perfect for making a wall-hanging sized Exploding Heart quilt!

A few months ago, Lysa Flower asked if I'd like to make a quilt with her new Drivin' Down 9 fabric collection, and of course I said yes! It was perfect for making a Suitcases quilt!

One goal that I have when designing quilts is to make them fun! This Hydra pillow definitely fits that description! It has 3-D scales that lift up! It has such a great texture that you just want to touch!
