Applique Elegance 7, 8, 9 from Virtual Quilter



Lucky last is my favourite of these three, and these are the last in this project file. I have not added a great number of new project files for quite some time, but with new blocks being added to my collection, and old ones being sorted, there will be new project files in the future.

Simple Squares {Finished Quilt} from Little Bunny Quilts

Today I'm excited to show off my finished quilt for our April Island Batik Ambassador challenge! Our theme was "creative borders and bindings".

As an Island Batik Ambassador, I am provided with samples of various lines of Island Batik fabrics, Aurifil thread, Accuquilt products, and Hobbs Batting to use and share with you!

My quilt is made entirely of 4.5" squares cut from Island Batik stash builder rolls and 4.5" strips of black solid batik to break up the inner 64-patch from the pieced outer border.

Blocked Borders {April IBA Challenge} from Little Bunny Quilts

I've taken my cut squares for my April Island Batik Ambassador project from squares...

... to a quilt center...

... to a finished quilt top!

Then I wondered what it would be like used as sashing!

Quilted Border Beauties 13, 14 from Virtual Quilter

I love it!

Love this one too.

I like the effect of the broken border of small crosses. I have used that border before but spaced as they are around the corner all the way round, and liked them that way, but also like them alternated with the inner border. I have also used them spaced as they are here before. Another thing I noticed with a quick glance is that the grape vine almost appears as a separate border to the grapes. That would probably change if the grapes were not so ripe!

A project for next Christmas perhaps … possibly a bit late for this year.

I think I like the first one today.
