The new Bellingham Bay fabrics by Island Batik for Studio 180 Design are beautiful and will be coming to quilt shops soon.
Certified Instructors were challenged to design a quilt to use these beautiful fabrics. As a Studio 180 Design Certified Instructor, I took the challenge. We were asked to use the Rapid Fire Hunter Star tool and any of the Studio 180 Design basic tools. I choose the V Block and the Four Patch Square Up tools.
V Block Units (made using the V Block tool) use purple, green, and background fabrics to create this design. They are put together with Four Patch Units (made using the Four Patch Square Up tool) to create the blocks. These blocks are joined with Hunter Star blocks to create this quilt. The blocks finish at 9 inches.
The Hunter Star Blocks are made with the background and green fabrics with four blocks using purple fabric on one end to create the Hunter Star that is in the middle of the quilt.
Quilting this quilt was fun. I quilted it with free motion quilting.
Thank you, Studio 180 Design, for the opportunity to make this quilt using the beautiful Bellingham Bay fabrics from Island Batik. It has been an honor to work with these fabrics.
