Happy New Year! Welcome to my final post of the year as an Island Batik Ambassador 2020! For this months challenge we had to create a Medallion quilt, any size and using any fabrics from the 2 packages we recieved throughout this year.
Of course i pulled out all my favourite colours but wanted to add a few dashes of random colours too, which i did with blue and green. For this project i didnt follow a pattern, instead i used my favourite technique… Improv and just made it up as i went along, starting with my centre block which conisists of a large cross with a heart appliqued over it.
I added some more crosses, half square triangles, plain border strips and finished with a stripey border which i love!
This was my first time using Hobbs Fusible cotton batting which i really enjoyed, i didnt have to pin baste, just ran the iron over once i had it all sandwiched, the fusible held up really well, I recommend and will definately be using this again. I pieced and quilted using Aurifil 50wt thread in colour 2024 and Schmetz Microtex chrome needles
My quilt turned out pretty big, and will be a great snuggle blanket for these colder months especially as my quilting is not as dense as normal, its soft a squishy x
Thankyou so much for following along with me this year and thankyou so much to Island batik and industry partners for supplying the amazing materials to work with x
Until next time…
Happy Sewing! x
