Here is my 2nd entry in the Amy's Creative Side - Blogger's Quilt Festival. This is a new design being released at Fall Market in the Island Batik booth, featuring their Fire Island fabric line due out this winter.
Patterns will be available after Nov. 1.
My quilt design is Jewels....and this version is Fire Island Jewels.
I loved working with the vibrant colors against the white and black. I kept imagining a hot lava flow in the Hawaiian islands.
Imagining the various shades of blue water.
Now to quilt it..... The border is a large flame like shape and this is repeated in various sizes around the jewels in the center of the quilt. If you just used blue and red jewels--it could easily be a Quilt of Valor!
So, this version of Jewels, Fire Island Jewels.
Here are other versions made by my 'testers':
|made by Julie Tapley, Quilted by Holly Anderson|
a Patriotic theme
|made by Nancy Cargo; Quilted by me|
using Jinny Beyer batiks and border print
My original "Royal Peacock Jewels" was a special commission for a wedding gift. I used a mishmash of specially selected colors for the center blocks and a Jinny Beyer border print. I always wanted to make this into a pattern ...and the time has finally come!
....and yes, I designed it that way. ha!
