I have to say that when we were told that
the Island Batik Challenge for this month was
I was perplexed!!!
Just what constitutes a modern quilt?
I searched the internet
and still couldn't come up with anything.
I had several ideas but nothing seemed right.
So here is what I came up with
I used a Crystal Cove Charm pack by Island Batik and
eight 10" squares of Desert Rose by Island Batik.
I also used my accuquilt go cutter and the Circle Die #55012
Used Fantastico #5144 thread by Superior Threads for the blanket stitching, they are having a sale on their fantastic threads as we speak.
To be honest, I was not even sure about this and was worried I was wasting my Crystal Cove charm pack.
Even when I was quilting it I was not sure.
and I say But....
when I put the binding on.....
all my worries faded away.
I am hoping to make a quilt out of this one day
not anytime soon but one day.
I think I need to go back to Samoa to be able to sew and blog like I used to. Life tends to be quite busy.
I have done another Sun Bonnet Sue quilt Samoan Style
