*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
I just realized I started blogging without telling anyone who I am! Hi there. I'm Randi, a crafter and mom from New Jersey. I used to be a math teacher, but now I run the By Annie Bag Makers group on Facebook, which currently has just over 32,000 (!) members all over the world, and I also run the Slow-Alongs within that group. I also test patterns and custom make bags and quilts. How did I go from teaching math, to this?! Life is crazy. 🙃 When I'm not crafting or momming, I enjoy learning (about everything, but archaeology is my favorite at the moment), trying different kinds of beer and pickles (not at the same time, though- yuck!), and visiting the farm animals that live near our house. I hope you will enjoy reading about my crafty adventures and goodies. Happy sewing!
