CHILD'S PLAY - BEAR'S PAW

The Island Batik Challenge for this month is Child's play using the BOB (block on a board) Accuquilt Go die.  It does not get any easier than this or any more fun!






Here are a few things you can do with this die.

Beaquilter received the same die, if you are interested in seeing what she has done for this months challenge, go here.






Aurifil Threads #2605 (grey) for sewing and #2130 (light yellow) for quilting.



I had originally planned a different border but didn't like how it looked so I opted for this border.  They are sewn together like you would sew your binding pieces together (on the diagonal).


The brighter the fabric the better.  That is my Motto!

51" x 61"

I used Island Batik Foundation Bundle Coordinates - basics and blenders from the recent box they sent to us.  Island Batik White (can't go wrong with white).




The whole time I was making this quilt I kept thinking of crayons. I always loved the beginning of the school year when we had a brand new box of crayons.  I also love smelling them....just like glue, and fabric....ha ha....  yep...I am a crayon,glue, fabric sniffer and proud of it!

Great project, great colors and great post! I had smelly markers and needed a new box every year when I was teaching, lol. The raspberry was the best!

Lovely quilt! The bright crayon colors really make it--and who doesn't love a box of new crayons? I still like it. Ha!

Fun quilt and always so great to be reminded of the old/new again techniques. I love the block in the center made that way!

These bright bold colors are PERFECT to give a modern edge to a traditional pattern. LOVE BEAR PAW!
