Hello Everyone,

I have been bursting at the "seams" to share this with all of you!  Most of you know that I design quilts for Quilt Magazine... if you don't get this one... you should. 

My latest design is probably one of my favorites.

I love the yummy color combos.  Using all batiks from Island Batik.

Quilted it using variegated thread and did some custom quilting.

You know I have an obsession with flying geese...  This quilt is loaded with them!  I used the method I show in my tutorial here.

Another shot of the quilting.  

The quilting in the tiny cornerstone that joins the fabulous green sashing.

Meet Island Breeze... Ahhhhh.... can you hear the waves crashing around you yet?  

This new design is in the newest issue of Quilt Magazine June/July 2012.  It can be found in my shop by clicking here and on newsstands on April, 10.  But honestly, you should subscribe, the people behind the magazine are just fabulous!

Oh and if you want to make this same exact quilt, I also have the kits in my shop too!  You will be able to find them by clicking here, we are just waiting on one more bolt of fabric to complete them.  Once that comes in then we can begin shipping.

Here is the beach scene from the magazine photo shoot.  Don't you just want to head to the beach??

The fabulous flat shot from Quilt!

For fun, Quilt Magazine has put a downloadable PDF line drawing of Island Breeze.  If you click here, you can download your own copy and then choose your own color combos!  How cool is that?

But this is why I am doing a Happy Dance...
