Welcome to my stop on the Island Batik “Try a Tool” Blog Hop with Studio 180 Design. For this months challenge we had to make a quilt using the new ruler we recieved in our second Ambassador boxes, and a brand new fabric collection, mine being Sun Kissed Soleil designed by Kathy Engle for Jackie Kunkel. This super fun and vibrant collection ships to stores this month! The ruler i used is the Wing Clipper, its makes the perfect Flying Geese unit in multiple sizes ranging from 1″ to 10″. Deb Tuckers rulers are so fun and one of the things i love is that there is hardly any fabric waste.
For ths project i used the largest block unit which measures 10″ x 5″ finished, This size really showcases the fabrics and you can see all the gorgeous prints from the collection.
I made 72 blocks in total and my quilt finishes at 60″ x 60″. I pieced and quilted using Aurifil 50wt thread in colour 2024, Hobbs 100% Cotton batting and a Schmetz Micro-tex sharp chrome needle 80/12.
Please do check out my fellow Ambassadors, This Blog Hop has been so fun and so many beautiful quilts have been made! Check out the list and dates here xx
