This is the Child's Play September challenge given to us Island Batik ambassadors.
All of the fabrics were supplied to me by Island Batik, the thread by Aurifil, and the Bear Paw die by Accuquilt.
We were to make a quilt for a child that used the BOB (Block on Board) die we were sent in July.
For those of you who have seen the quilt progress on Instagram, and in my progress post on the quilt, you will know that you can cut an entire two-colour bear paw block with just two passes of the BOB die through the cutter, switching out the fabric on the second pass. It took me a bit of figuring to use it for a four-colour block, and the three-colour paws, but I did it!
The quilt had to be a minimum of 45X60". Magic and whimsy were encouraged.
As you saw in the progress post, I had several ideas as I played in EQ8, but I settled on this one, and I am so happy with it.
Will there be a pattern? You betcha. Yeah, there are a ton of HSTs again, but the way I have the pattern instructions, you can start sewing with just 16 of the puppies.
Speaking of puppies (gosh I love a good segue), here is an outtake of the flimsy shot:
A note on 'segue', which trips me up every. single. time.
I want to write 'segway' but that is the vehicle (hilarious 'Fraser' episode with Niles on one), and the smooth transition is 'segue'. Now you know! And hopefully I will remember...
Short post today, as I have this to quilt, as well as Brady's, by the weekend! I have backings for both; now I just need to piece a couple of long seams....
