Island Batik New York Beauty Blog Hop - Winter Wonders



Welcome to week three, day three of the Island Batik New York Beauty Blog hop!





Today I am showing off my creation using the new Island Batik Winter Wonders fabric line by Kathy Engle and I have info on two give a ways at the end of the post!



These are beautiful festive prints hitting stores now, just in time for Christmas in July!
I started with four different New York Beauty blocks and picked fabrics for each section as I went along.




Switching from green to red to tan.  It was fun to cut and sew and not really worry about what was going where. They all play so well together!





 I sewed the blocks in sets of four.  Four patterns, four different color variations for each one.




Choosing a layout was fun.  I could have turned the blocks so many different ways.  There were so many different combinations, but four circles ended up winning the vote here, so that is what I went with.





I added some sashing blocks between the New York Beauty blocks and for the outer border.



For the backing I used a red print from the Island Batik Foundation collection called Scarlet. The strips in the middle are all from the Winder Wonders collection.




I quilted it with with Hobbs Heirloom Premium Cotton Batting and Schmetz Chrome Microtex Needles.






It quilted up fantastic.




I never would have guessed I would have a project ready before Christmas in July.
It sure feels good to have a new Christmas quilt done early! Lol!




Now for my Giveaway!
