What’s under my foot

Sunday I was able to share the opening of box 1 from Island Batik. This has to be the best box ever, the colors are wonderful.

The first Island Batik Blog Hop is next month and the fabric I received for the hop is Fruits and Veggies, designed by Kathy Engle. The challenge is a puff quilt, one of which I have never completed before. After watching what seemed like an endless number of videos I told myself, “you got this”!

Almost every video recommended you pleat the top layer of fabric, so I pulled out my 4 1/2″ and 5″ AccuQuilt dies. Cutting, stitching and stuffing began.

Your shares from last week

OMG, I have been watching Andrée’s progress on Version 2.0 for over a year. Version 1 was made for Andrée’s son by her mother. Everyone knows that a well loved quilt doesn’t last forever, that is where Version 2.0 comes in. But you’ll have to hop over to Quilting & Learning What a Combo to view this labor of love. The quilting really does tell a story.

Anne-Marie shared her art quilt, isn’t is beautiful? It reminds me of a Midwest sunset on 4th of July. Can’t wait to see it quilted. You can see more at Stories From the Sewing Room.

One more since I featured Andrée two weeks in a row. Gail shared her SAHRR 2023 progress, you can see more about her project on Quilting Gail. She has made progress since last week so be sure to check for her current post.

  1. Hi Denise, I’m intrigued by the puff quilt. Looking forward to seeing what it looks like. Thanks for featuring Version 2.0. It’s so nice to be doing something else (well actually many, many other things lol). Have a great weekend.

    1. Thank you. Believe it or not, I had enough left in the bag of fiber fill that I could have stuffed 2 more blocks.

  2. Denise your puff quilt is going to be a beauty! I like making puff quilts for babies. It’s a great one to coordinate nursery colours, especially rainbows of colours. ?

    1. This is going to my soon to be great nephew. His nursery is a jungle theme and I think all these greens will pull everything together. I had other plans for his quilt until I opened the box and seen Fruits and Veggies.

  3. Thanks for sharing my quilt. 🙂 That box of goodies was pretty amazing! I like how they fold in the corners on the 10″ squares so you can actually see what’s in there.
