Welcome to my stop on the Island Batik Quilt Modern Blog Hop! For this challenge our brief was to make a modern quilt using a brand new fabric collection! The fabric i recieved is called Forecast designed by Ebony Love of Lovebug Studios, a super fun collection of weather inspired prints in colour and low volume including suns, rain, thunder and clouds. The fab collection is shipping to stores this month.
I absolutely love modern quilts so this was a super fun challenge for me! i decided to start with improv crosses, making one cross in each of the fabrics from the collection, with the idea of adding negative space with the low volume prints of the line.
Once i was happy with my placement and design i stitched each block together into 8 rows of 5, and finished with matchstick quilting which i think looks so great on a modern quilt. For the stitching and quilting i used Aurifil 50wt thread in colour 2024 and Schmetz micro tex chrome needles, For the batting i used Hobbs 100% Hierloom Cotton and backed the quilt with Forecast – Ligntning Teal.
Its been aother super fun challenge with a super fun fabric collection! and i cannot wait to see what my fellow Ambassadors make, please see the schedule below to see who is posting on what days and be sure to enter each weekly giveaway here.
