Happy Friday! I hope that all is well with you and that you will have some Quilty time to sew this weekend! Thank you for visiting my blog! Today is my turn on the Jaftex Blog Hop and I was able to create some really cute Fabric baskets with a Beach theme to share. I wanted to thank the division of Blank Quilting for the opportunity to sew with their Fusion Illusion Bundle of fabrics!
Jaftex is celebrating their celebrating their 85th year in business!
Please be sure to look for the link on the side bar that will take you to the Nationally sponsored giveaways by Jaftex and visit all of the other bloggers on the Blog Hop to see their beautiful projects! When I received my Bundle of fabrics I was so excited to sew with them! There was a wide range of colors and I started to daydream about Fabric Baskets again! So when I began to sew my idea became my starting point. Some of my favorite things to make are Fabric Baskets and Wonky Stars. The jewel tones in the Fusion Illusion Bundle presented the perfect background pallet for the wonky stars. I went to two local quilt shops to find the beach prints from Blank Quilting to use for the focal points in my baskets.
After the outsides were sewn together it was time to sit and do some straight line quilting. Machine quilting with straight lines is a favorite of mine and it gives the fabric basket extra sturdiness. The pictures below are of each color way being quilted. Quilting always brings a project to life!
Don't they all look amazing and I just love the sea life! Below is a picture of the finished baskets and a peek into my messy sewing room...lol..please excuse my lovely mess...the baskets turned out quite gorgeous, don't you think?
If you would like a chance to sew with the Fusion Illusion Fat quarter bundle, then today is your lucky day! A special thank you to Jaftex for sending a bundle for me to share with one lucky Bloggy Giveaway winner!
