Misadventures in Bag Making- Episode 2: Zipper Woes and Wisdom

The next episode of Misadventures in Bag Making is up!

Island Batik Ambassadors - All Puffed Up!

*Fabric shown in this post was provided by Island Batik Fabrics as part of their Ambassador Program.* The first challenge of the year for the Island Batik Ambassadors is to make a puff quilt. This is a project that has intrigued me for some time, but for some reason, I had never tried it before this challenge!  I was lucky enough to be assigned Juicy Mosaics, a gorgeous line of batik fabrics by Kathy Engle for Island Batik. Just look at these colors! 😍😍😍 I read and watched videos about many different techniques for creating a puff/bubble/biscuit quilt, but as per my usual way of going about things, I decided upon a combination of winging it and combining tips from various sources.  I designed my quilt as I went, using a combination of strips and squares. The quilt was a bit cumbersome to work with, but I think the result is worth it.  These shops have Juicy Mosaics in stock now: Creekside Quilts OR Hancocks of Paducah Stitchin Heaven Castle Sewing Centre-CANADA JellyRoll

Pretties 🥰

I just got a big delivery from Pineapple Fabrics. I had a bit of difficulty resisting their clearance department. 😬😂
