Island Batik & Creative New Quilts Blog Hop Day 10


Hello Friends,  I am a little sad we have come to our last day of the Island Batik & Creative New Quilts blog hop.  I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing my book projects being made with batik fabrics.  I am immensely appreciative of all the talented quilters who have contributed to the hop!

Monday, March 14 – Island Batik Intro – be sure to stop by for the giveaway of a free fabric bundle! You will also see what outfit I wore to church yesterday when you visit Island Batik’s blog today.  Totally unplanned… I chuckled when I saw the picture!

Tuesday, March 15 – The Fit Quilter – Adele is using the Desert Rose collection to make her version of Crossings! You have got to pop on over to see her quilt – simply gorgeous! Adele is a quilt designer herself — check out her work, and the patterns she has for sale!

Wednesday, March 16 – Pamela Quilts — Pamela gives a batik-y twist to my Flight of Colors pillows. Pam is also a Craftsy Designer, as well as Etsy Shop owner.  Do take a moment to check out her offerings!!!  And there’s a giveaway of a copy of my book!

Thursday, March 17 – MooseStash Quilting — Today featured hop project is one that is near and dear to my heart!!!  Joan made my quilt with the BUZZ – my coffee cup quilt! You simply have to head over to her blog to see her quilt.  I am tempted to reveal the colors of Joan’s quilt here, but I shall refrain!  And of course, as for the entire blog hop, a free copy of my book is given away by all the hop contributors.

Friday, March 18 –  Bejeweled Quilts — Barb is a talented designer, and I am thrilled to see her version of my Birds of a Feather placemats! Barb is also a Craftsy designer.  I hope you will check out her many best-selling patterns!

Monday, March 21 –  One Quilting Circle — Last Friday you saw the placemats, today Linda is sharing the Birds of a Feather runner with Island Batik’s Sweet Georgia Peachfabric lines.  The fabrics gave the runner a mosaic look!  You have to check it out.

Tuesday, March 22 –  BeaQuilter — Check out how Bea, an amazing quilter and designer, has given my Childhood Memories girl quilt a very elegant look!  It has red and black in the colors – two of my favorites!!!

Wednesday, March 23 – Freemotion by the River (Connie) and KISSed Quilts (Marlene).  These two ladies did a fantastic job with my Winter Blues quilt.  You have to check out their quilts, as well as their blogs – as there is a LOT of talent on those blogs.  Of course, enter the giveaway for a copy of the book that has instructions on how to make myWinter Blues quilt.

TODAY!!!  Thursday, March 24 – Mary Mack Made Mine — I think of Maryellen as one of my late night friends! There have been numerous times she and exchange emails during the night when I am burning midnight oil.  I am really excited to have Maryellen make one of my quilts with Island Batik’s London Fog fabrics.   I love that Maryllen also increase the size of her quilt but making more blocks than my original quilt.  Please head on over to her blog to see her version of my Stars Over Columbia quilt!  While you are there, check out Maryellen’s Etsy shop as well.

Friday, March 25 – Lemon Tree Snippets — Today’s hop featured project is my Counting My Blessings banner quilt.  It is one that has received sweet and warm responses!  Hop on over to Pat’s blog to see the blings she has added to the banner.


So this is my original Counting My Blessings.  



The pagoda birdhouse is a nod to my Oriental heritage.


You may click here to view more pictures of the banner.  The book also includes an autumn version of falling leaves (and the full size template).

I hope you have enjoyed this 2-week long hop.  A HUGE thank you to Island Batik for coordinating the hop, and Landauer Publishing for sponsoring the book giveaway.  I hope you will remember check out the products of these wonderful companies for your next quilty purchase – just sayin’! :)

And I hope you have a most blessed weekend as we celebrate Easter/Resurrection of Christ.

  1. This has been a great hop! I’m sew glad I got to be a part of it. It’s a great book! I love so many of the designs, and plan to make more. Hugs!

  2. Happy Easter, Wendy….hope your family has a beautiful, blessed day together. After SonRise Service and church with our Easter cantata, my 3 girls and 3 grandbabies will have dinner with us. If I could manifest a miracle with the snap of my fingers it would be that Miss Baby could have her grandparents with her on Sunday. This hop has been a hoot….Island Batiks are beautiful…but I need more than seeing….I need to touch them…so I think I’ll just have to find some for myself…lol. Blessings….
