Giveaway on the Island Batik Blog hop...

Welcome to the start of the September Blog hop, there are lots amazing projects to see, along with exciting new tools and of course giveaways throughout the month.

Fancy being in with the chance of winning one of these gorgeous bundles?? keep reading and il tell you how later on...

I got to use the new Spring 2022 collection 'Baroque', there are 20 different designs in this collection, I love purples and blues, so I was super excited to create a quilt using these beautiful colours.

I created my quilt using a new tool 'square squared' designed by Deb Tuckers of Studio 180 Design

I decided to make the biggest centre square to showcase this new fabric collection, so i began cutting a 6" square from each of the fabric, along with a few extras (my favourite ones)

I used Island batik white, grey and black solids to surround each coloured square

My cat got caught re arranging the squares :) :)

I decided to arrange the colours in the collection from light to dark

My quilt was quilted using Hobbs wool batting - why?

As this is a lap quilt, wool is ideal, as it gives amazing warmth without the weight 'the fibers breathes, allowing excess heat to disperse away from the body'

I absolutely love the cosy feeling this batting gives you, I hoping these photos really give you some idea of the depth and snuggleness (if that's not a word, it should be :)

I used the gorgeous 'Dots on Green Seeding' from the Baroque collection to back my lap quilt
