As most of you know, I usually check out Key West for two months during the Winter. This year we are keeping home in PA. Of course, it has to be the coldest Winter ever, or so it seems to me. When it is 3 degrees, I just don’t want to visit outside, however when you will need groceries, there is no other choice.
It gives me a fresh appreciation for those of you that live in climates where in fact the temps strike -30 degrees. I usually look for the sterling silver lining. Staying home has given me lots of time for focusing on my last project as an Island Batik Ambassador. I’ve been admiring Modern interpretations of traditional quilt blocks that I’ve seen on sociable mass media (Instagram) as well as improvisational blocks.
They really intrigue me. Because of this final task, my fabric collection is called “Blue Moon”. It’s a significant coincidence that the theme for this month’s project may be the Four Seasons and that I was presented with this icy blue palette of colors. I love blue and I’m so happy to see this color come back. This collection plus white was my playground for these blocks.
I really loved making these blocks and searching for ideas. But the most fun part for me was rearranging, adding and subtracting to generate the ultimate quilt. It’s this puzzle aspect of quilting that appeals to me the most. This is the next to last step in my process of putting all of these blocks together. You can view I had to add some fill up ins. Each day conquering the tension issues I’ve got as a newbie with my longarm I made a decision to spend.
Oh young man, do I really like YouTube. I viewed many videos with education which range from how to essential oil it, how to download the backing and the quilt, how to baste it as well as how to thread it. I reached away to other IB Ambassadors asking them about quilting with IB batiks and I have to thank them. Those with longarms prompted me to do it. Every one of the Island Batik Ambassadors are taking part in a blog hop to commemorate the culmination of the year’s worth of projects.
Today Jennifer on the Inquiring Quilter is also posting her amazing quilt that she produced from the Blue Moon collection. It’s so interesting to see what us have created using the same materials. To celebrate the blog hop are 2 giveaways, one hosted by me and one hosted by Island Batik. I have already been trying (key term attempting) to do a bit of studio arranging and came across some of my swag from Quilt Market and other odds and ends.

My giveaway is bound to continental US addresses. 2. Like me on Facebook or leave a comment if you already have. Island Batik is hosting a giveaway on Rafflecopter also. Do not forget to browse the other weblogs in your blog hop. You’ll have the opportunity to see every one of the collections just arriving at your local quilt shops. And how do I spend last night’s chilly temps while writing this post? With my puppy dog on my lap and a warm open fire. Stay warm my friends, benefit from the hop and you are hoped by me win some goodies.
The Great Barrier Reef is the home to numerous endangered and vulnerable species that are even endemic to the coral Reef system. THE FANTASTIC Barrier Reef is home to the humpback whale, dwarf minke whale and the Indo-Pacific humpback dolphin and many such other tiny varieties of porpoises, dolphins and whales.
The reef system facilitates a large human population of dugongs. Other than these there are several varieties of snapper, eighty-four types of spawns, red-throat emperor, coral trout, red bass, clownfish and 40 nine varieties of the mass spawn. In the northern and the southern sections, up to 50 metres in the warm waters of the reef systems lives over seventeen species of sea snakes. The species of sea turtles like the hawksbill turtle, leatherback sea turtle, Olive Ridley, flatback turtle, green sea loggerhead and turtle sea turtle come to the reef systems for mating. The green sea turtles are divided genetically between the northern and the southern area of the reefs.
