The older I get the more obvious my propensity to be a creature of habit is exposed. Part of my weekly exercise routine includes trying to ride my mountain bike as many times a week as I can. While riding my same
10-mile loop, my excursion takes me past the above community
monument with the beautiful perennial flowers planted in its flower bed.
While riding past the monument several times a week, I kept thinking,
"Wow, that would be a great place to shoot a picture of a quilt!"
With that in mind, the next challenge was ... "Which quilt will I shoot?"
When our daughter, Racheal (the store sample maker), dropped this beautiful Migration quilt by our house, the moment I saw it, I said "That's it!"
Immediately, Racheal, our 2 grandsons, and Papa ( yours truly) then
jumped in the car and headed through the neighborhood to this
picture-perfect spot to shoot this quilt!
The Southwest vibe of this quilt perfectly lent itself
to the desert and floral background for my shoot!
With closer examination of the picture on the pattern, we noticed
straight-line quilting technique. Having never used this quilting pattern,
we thought we would try it.
We all think the straight-line quilting was a
perfect accent for this unique project!
The wonderful Island Batik Sweet Hearts collection was
the cornerstone in building this impressive Migration quilt.
We have the complete fabric collection in stock.
We also have kits available that are ready to be pieced.
Attached is a link directly to the Migration kit.
Sweet Hearts is also our featured fabric this week so keep scrolling to
learn more about this amazing collection!
One more mention - it seems apropos that the quilt kit carries the name ...
Migration. When the temps touch the 90's, the traffic gets heavier as folks migrate back to their summer homes.
If that is you, we sure hope you can find the time to stop buy just
one more time before you load up and head for home!
Happy Migrating Quilting!
