"WHISPERING FEATHERS"

This quilt pattern made it into the Island Batik Fall/Winter Catalog 2019

                                                              Free Space

The fabric line is "Whispering Feathers"

I just love these fabrics but I have yet to not like any of Island Batik Fabrics.

 

I used Hobbs batting (I just purchased a whole roll of Hobbs Batting)...love it!


I used Aurifil Threads  #2315 (light tan) and #2568 (burgundy for blanket stitching)


Notice all of the circles?  At one time I could have told you how many I used but I am too lazy to calculate or go and look it up (that is right lazy).  As you can see there are a lot.

I used the Accuquilt Go Cutter Circle Die #55012.  Sure made fast work of the circles.

I opted not to use any fabric adhesive.  For one, it would take a lot, and then you would need to cut and iron....so this gal is LAZY!!  Also, it would make the quilt stiff in places.

I used elmer's glue and a lot of starch, only putting the circles on when I wanted to sew them on.  Normally if you use fabric adhesive you will iron all of the pieces on and then applique.  I just did one at a time.....I glued the circles, ironed them and then glued them on, as I said one at a time.  Worked out great.

This was a lot of fun but for me stressful because I wanted it to turn out perfect.  Each year I say I am not going to do another pattern for the catalog because I get so stressed but this is my fourth pattern in one of Island Batik Catalogs.  Will I say never....NOPE

Funny, as Barbara said "Anyone who can create a quilt like this is definitely NOT lazy!" I think we just choose when and where to use our energies.
I love this one.

Love your quilt. I think this proves you are not lazy. From what I understand, each circle is made up of a lot of little circles. I can't tell, is it raw edge? Whatever, I love it and think you did a fantastic job!
