Today is my stop on the Island Batik Ambassador “Inspired by nature” Blog hop. Today im sharing with you a brand new collection called “Love and Kisses” designed by Sherry Shish. A lovely selection of blues, pinks and purples mostly with hearts incorporated in the deisgns. These will be shipping to stores in December. (Check out the website images here)
My Inspiration for this project was the night sky, were seeing alot of it this time of year and its so pretty looking up at it, seeing all the stars shining. I used the blues of the collection for the background and then used this lovely Simple Star pattern by Irina of Zephyrskies to create some pink and purple stars. This pattern is a great beginner project for any newbie to FPP, it comes with 2 different sized stars, 6″ and 12″ and consists of 3 templates with just 3 sections in each and is a free download too! you can get your hands on this pattern here in Irina’s Payhip store.
I pieced and quilted using Hobbs 100% cotton batting, Aurifil 2024 50wt thread and Schmetz microtex needles 80/20.

This is lovely. When I lived in the desert, I used to love to lay on a large quilt and just look at the stars. They were so bright. I felt like I could reach out and grab one. quilting dash lady at comcast dot net
Very pretty! I love the stars!
This is such a pretty collection. I love how the effect the straight line quilting gives.
I love how the colors blend with each other! This is beautiful.
