Welcome to the Seaside Summer Blog Hop brought to you by Island Batik Ambassadors from all over the world!
Throughout this BlogHop are giveaways, tutorials, inspiration and a few summer beach snack recipes as well!
I'll have at least 3 different collections throughout this hop to inspire you with, but today we're focusing on the Rain Forest collection
This design is a pattern called Geese on the Run and
this particular version I called "Desert Landscape".
This is an easy runner that can teach you two ways to make flying geese. I've never made so many versions of a single pattern. I enjoyed making it so much and had so many ideas with this fabric collection, I just couldn't stop.
When you make scrappy flying geese for a project, there is one technique, and if you want to just use 5 colors/values then you can do it with another technique. Either way, there are lots of border options too. All of these are included in the pattern.
I have limited quantity of Stacks (10" x 10") available my shop (the fabrics used as the scrappy geese are all in the pre-cut set of 'stacks' or 'stamps' in this Rainforest collection) and yardage choices for background, borders, binding and backings. A stamp set will yield 1 runner of geese and stack set will yield 4 runners of geese! You can purchase them now from my KISSed Quilts shop
, I'm willing to ship!
Desert Landscape Lavender (v.1 and 2) Copper Birds in the Forest
A detailed shot of my quilting on Desert Landscape. The other runners I used edge-to-edge designs. So there are lots of options.
Summer Beach Snack
Next time you're headed to the beach, this might be the perfect runner to show off your wonderful snacks. I grew up on the central coast of California and the beach was often cool, not hot! So, my memories of the beach are from roasting corn in the coals of a fire. Wrap a set of 4 ears of corn (flat) with two layers of tin foil and once the fire has some good coals, put the ears right in there. Let them 'bake' for four minutes, using a pitch fork going in underneath the coals, scoop the ears out and flip them over for another four minutes. Then remove with the pitch fork --the coals fall between the tines of the pitch fork. Have a cube of butter on hand to roll the corn in and the sand is about as good as it gets for salt! ...or you can salt it! ha! or add bits of seasoning or cheese. Yummy!!!
Interested in the pattern? It is available from me
(I'm willing to ship) or from select quilt shops that carry Island Batik fabrics. If they don't have it yet, ask them to order it!
