Hi friends! Today my post is about ANOTHER new batik line from Island Batik called Summer Twilight!
And yes, I have some FQs to giveaway; I love to share my goodies with you all! See the giveaway at the end of the post. Giveaway is closed! Thanks to all who entered!
Summer Twilight Fabrics
Summer Twilight is a batik line designed by my friend Tammy Silver of Tamarinis for Island Batik. The minute I saw the line, I knew which of my quilts I wanted to recolor it in!
The line has a wonderful mix blues, teal, purple and deep pinks that reminds one of the last moments of a summer sunset.
I am so lucky that I get to play with such wonderful batiks.
Up and Down
I knew my quilt Up and Down would look amazing in her line of fabrics! I just love those bright lines of flying geese!
To offset the batiks, I added a light but not white background fabric.
The fabric is called Rice and it has this soft blue tint to it. Just perfect to set off the Summer Twilight line!
Bonus Mini Quilt
The pattern comes with instructions to make a bonus mini quilt with the leftover flying geese.
So of course, I had to make that quilt as well!
A FQ Giveaway –
Yes, another one!
I love to share what I have and I have a set of the 8 FQs used in this project to giveaway!
Did I mention that Up and Down is FQ friendly? The FQs are for the FG!
If you would like a chance to win a FQ bundle of 8 FQs then here’s the drill: To be entered for a chance to win, leave a comment on THIS blog post. The giveaway is open until 9pm MT, Sunday May 14th. Which is Mother’s Day! It would have been my mom’s 88th birthday. She passed away 44 years ago but she is always in my thoughts. So maybe in your comment you can tell me who you are celebrating this Mother’s Day; a mother, a grandmother, an aunt, a daughter, a friend …. anyone who embodies the spirit of giving and caring. Giveaway is open to all with a BUT- if you are not in the US, you must agree to share in the shipping costs if you win. This was a suggestion from one of my Canadian followers who was sad at missing out on the fun, so here you go!
Giveaway is closed! Thanks to all who entered!
