Island Batik May Blog Hop, plus Giveaway…

Welcome along to the May blog hop, this month we get to use our ‘surprise’ fabrics, they are new fabrics from the Winter 2019 collections.

5 - Ultimate Home Decor Blog Hop

I received ‘Northern Lights designed by Kathy Brett Engle for Island Batik.

–> See the full collection here <–

Be sure to check out all the Island Batik Ambassadors to see which new collections they are using, see what they’ve made, and be in with a chance of winning some fabulous fabrics along the way. See the full list of Ambassadors at the end of the post.

The challenge this month was to make something for the home…wall hangings, cushions, rugs, linens, and decorative craft projects like bowls, wreaths, lampshades and baskets.  I choose to make a cushion cover, and as the collection is called ‘Northern Lights’, I wanted to create something that looked like stars. I decided to use my periwinkle paper piece sets from www.linapatchwork.com/.

The 9 fabrics I chose from the collection were…

Tossed feathers – cotton Candy

Sun – Hot Pink

Saskatoon – Berry

Vertical feathers – waterfall

Star – Lilac

Beads – Blackberry

Triangle – Merlot

Star – Mystical Berry

Triangle – Tournaline

 

After removing the papers, I machine sewed them to the cushion cover (rice – neutral) using a silver metallic thread from Gutermann.
