Here it is hanging at Fall Market (Oct 2017) to show attendees a first glimpse of the line.
Island Batik has the entire collection of Alpine Ice individually posted and can be viewed by all. Shops can order it to then share with interested customers.
There are two colorways within this collection --grey and blue. There is a sister collection called Alpine Jingle that has gold/red/green colors and similar motifs. Watch for that tomorrow on the blog hop.
I focused on the grey colorway.
In my patterns, when there are multiple block designs, I like to instruct how to make each block in what I deem the most efficient way possible. Using Electric Quilt software, it is easy to get the necessary elements for each method.
1. Snowballs - rotary cut and simple stitching.
5. Appliqued trees using a mylar template.
Fussy cutting the stripe fabric gives unique sashings that mimic the pieced rows.
This would make a great learning quilt, start off easy and build on your skills to finish it.
Loved my #Aurifil threads for piecing and quilting! Here are a few close up shots.
Patterns will be available as fabrics are shipping in April. If you're interested in getting one and would appreciate video tutorials for each row and fussy cutting the sashings and border, please let me know in the comments below. How about pre-printed paper foundations and the mylar templates?
Thank you for stopping by. This blog hop will continue with other seasons. I've got 3 other posts myself, one in Summer and two in Fall and more giveaways too! See you back here real soon.
