Island Breeze

Y'all like leftovers?  I do!
You might recognize some of these fabrics from my past post.  I dug through my stash and added some other tropical flavor batiks to my leftovers from the last quilt I made.  I needed a birthday gift for a special lady and I had to have it done and in the mail tomorrow.  I love how simple it is, yet it's really cool!

I have seen this modern style all over bloggy land and had yet to try it out!
After sorting through my scraps, I grabbed some of this Riley Blake "Whisper White" solid (top bolt) to add to the quilt.  See, it's really not white at all, but a yummy silvery color. 
Here's where this all started, I measured this chunk of backing left from my last quilt and found I had just enough for a ~60 x 80 quilt plus some for binding. 
Quilted with a large swirly overall, labeled and ready to ship.
It's made with good vibes--pieced, quilted and bound to Jimmy Buffet and James Taylor~

I'll have to remember to tell you when my birthday is. LOL! Doesn't it feel to get a twoofer out of fabric. Both quilts are beautiful. I couldn't leave a comment on the quilt you finished last week but I had to check it out, up close, all the the sea animals. Quilting was amazing. Love when you share how you do "things".

What a fabulous gift. I love the simplicity of the design and how it allows the fabric to be the star. Nice job on the quilting, too.
