Twinkle Quilt featuring Mountain's Majesty {Four Seasons Blog Hop with Island Batik}

Yesterday was the kick-off of Island Batik's Four Seasons Blog Hop and today is my day to share a wintry themed quilt with you featuring the new line, Mountain's Majesty!


Mountain's Majesty is actually composed of multiple colorways, my project uses the fabrics and colors on the top half of the image below.


I received both navy and light blue large cuts with my fat quarter bundle, and decided to use the navy as my background because it reminds me of the dark starry skies in the wintertime! So off I went to create some star blocks to bespeckle my navy sky!

I actually designed this Nested Friendship Star block (modified slightly for this version) back in 2014 and have since then wanted to put together a full quilt with this block. This fabric bundle was perfect to do just that!

Say hello to "Twinkle"!



I used 20 different fabrics in the quilt top (16 different fabrics for the large stars, 3 fabrics for the small stars, and the background fabric) in addition to the light blue print for the binding. Because I'm selfish and love this quilt and plan to keep it for myself, I backed it in teal flannel so it is EXTRA snuggly. I'm already working on a pattern for this quilt so keep your eyes peeled.



For the quilting, I did a large, all over meander to keep it soft and cuddly. The binding is a light blue print with trees and I machine bound it. I was really hoping that I would be able to take pictures of this quilt in the snow, but instead it was just bitterly cold.



Itching to win some of this fabric for yourself? I cut all of my extra fabric into charm squares and ended up with enough to send 60+ 5" squares to not one, but TWO lucky readers!

Leave comments to win, lots of options, choose one or choose all! I will leave the comments open until Monday, January 15th at midnight.

1. Leave a comment with your favorite new fabric line from the Fall 2017 IB Collection (shipping now!) or the Winter 2017/2018 IB Collection (shipping in April!).
2. If you follow Island Batik on social media (blog, Instagram, Facebook, etc.) leave a comment and tell me how you follow.
3. If you follow Little Bunny Quilts or Honey, Bunny, and Doll Quilts (Bloglovin', Instagram/Instagram, Facebook) leave a comment and tell me how you follow.

Update: the giveaway is now close and Pat and Claudia are the winners!



Please see this post for the entire blog hop schedule -- just about every hop stop will have a giveaway of some sort, so it doesn't hurt to check them all out! There is also another giveaway on the Island Batik blog -- use the Rafflecopter to enter!

  20. Hi Alison,
    I love your nested friendship star block (I PINNED that for later), as well as your Twinkle quilt! I love the navy as the background. It really lets those other 20 fabrics shine as the 'stars' so to speak. HAHA Maybe you wouldn't mind if I shared your block and quilt on my blog later in the year - with credit to you of course? I like to share tutorials once a week or so, just in case people are looking for an inspiration. Oh, and my favorite collection is the Alpine Ice. What a perfect name for it! ~smile~ Roseanne

  72. I Love Love Love this pattern and quilt Alison. It's simply gorgeous and I know I would recreate this myself. Drop me a note when you release the pattern, I definitely want it. I definitely know what you mean about the snow, we haven't had but like a droplet of snow at all this year in a state where snow is common here in Colorado, so hopefully we get some very soon. I don't mind the cold weather, but we haven't even really had that either. It's not like warm or anything, but it's not cold enough to turn the heat on even so my gas bills have been lower this year than normal to... a plus, but I'd rather have snow. :)
