Getaway Blog Hop {Dashing to the Chapel in Bazaar}

I am so excited to share my quilt for the Getaway Blog Hop, hosted by Island Batik!


As I previewed two weeks ago, I am working with the Bazaar collection this time around:


This collection has a tropical feel! I love that many of the prints have orange featured!

I decided that I wanted to turn my half yards of this fabric into a queen sized quilt using our Dashing to the Chapel pattern (available on Etsy and PayHip!)



I used ten slightly larger scale prints (and the rainbow batiks) for the larger church dash blocks, and used six smaller scale prints for the medium and small churn dash blocks. I used an oatmeal blender for my background fabric. Once the quilt center was assembled. I used a turquoise blender batik for the small border. Instead of using wide strips for the outermost border, I used squares of the various pink, orange, and rainbow prints to finish the quilt.


The quilt was long arm quilted by Fran of Twin Stitches using a pantograph called "Dazzle." I used two/three different yellow fabrics from the collection for the binding.


I love how this quilt sparkles with these Island Batiks!


The cold and snow impeded some of my plans for pictures, but I was able to snap a few once the sun came out today!



Two of my fellow IB Ambassadors also have shared projects featuring Bazaar today:

  125. Hi Alison! I saw the Bazaar fabric on Karen's website too, and it is just gorgeous. Your quilt is fabulous, plus it features the churn dash - my new favorite block. I follow so many IBAers - and you all offered so many varied and creative, fun ideas as the year end wrap up hop. It's hard to pick a favorite, but I'm kind of partial to that daisy print. ~smile~ Roseanne

  134. In truth, I am not a churn-dash enthusiast. I don't know what it is, but churn dashes bug me. Your design, though, gives new life to the boring old churn dash! I could have some serious fun playing with value and color in that quilt design. What a great finish!

    ReplyDelete
  135. The pink paisley is especially pretty.
