I hope you have visited the other Ambassadors and enjoyed their beautiful creations. We are so happy to represent Island Batik. The other Ambassadors have shared their designs and patterns, plus recipes to add to your kitchen.
Today I am sharing from the Spring/Summer 2015 line, Wishing Well. The fabric is called Fishing Hole Pond, and I have to say I LOVE it! When my fabric arrived each fabric pattern reflected a cool, calming effect. I wanted to sit by a river and listen to the wild animals that roam the mountains of Colorado.
I knew right away which pattern I wanted to make.
It can be called Rail and Square, but I call it Rails on Point.
I don't live on a river or by a lake, but draping the quilt along the porch railing reflected a summer time feel for me.
I wanted to use the sunflower fabric so I decided to make a zippered pouch.
I've always been a little leery when it comes to zippers, but Joan Doan's tutorial was easy to follow.You can find the tutorial for the zippered pouch on the Missouri Star Quilt Company. Just click HERE for Jenny Doan's easy instructions.
For a summertime recipe, you cannot beat the Pioneer Woman to share her cooking talents. We made this Mexican Macaroni Salad.
Delicious! Perfect for the Labor Day weekend bar-b-ques.
And finally the giveaways. Island Batik is hosting a giveaway. If you have not already signed up you still have time. Two batik bundles are in the offering. Just click HERE.
And as a thank you for hanging in here and reading I will be giving away a summer fat quarter bundle of Island Batik fabrics as well.
Isn't that a great way to end the summer? Just leave a comment on this post, telling me how you spent your summer and I will draw a winner on Monday, the official end of summer.
