This month's ambassadors challenge theme...
You all know just how much I love applique, and with Easter
I dug thru my special drawer of "Island Batik" fabrics, and went to work.
This adorable little guy, is a design by Wendy Bentley.
The artist of the calendar "Favorite Things" from Lang.
I was just introduced to this the other day at quilt club.
It was love at first sight.
As quilters we find inspiration everywhere, and "Favorite Things"
is now right up there, on the top of my list.
Every month is a design I just can't wait to put to fabric.
Here's a couple of photos of the envelope it came in.
You can see just how fun these designs are.
I had to do a little searching for online for it, and
here's what I have found...
Has the smaller 2017 wall calendar which is 7 3/4" w x 15"h
(its on sale for a great price)
The brand new 2018 calendars are available too.
I wanted the bigger size 13 3/4"w x 24"h
This one is perfect for those 12" mini quilt hangers.
Oh and if you can't live without that great calendar frame
It's considerably cheaper on Amazon!
Want to know a little bit about how I made
the grass on the bottom, stand up?
I won a bottle of Terial Magic recently.
Honestly, I hadn't heard of it, and didn't have any idea
what it was.
Well, I'm here to tell you, it's awesome.
The best way I can describe it... it's like a starch of steroids!
It's used to make dimensional things from fabric,
like flowers and wings, etc...
I just can't say enough good about it.
I've been told it's perfect for fabrics we run thru our cutting machines, like the "Brother Scan and Cut" or the "Silhouette Cameo".
I've not played with it myself, but I'm reading rave reviews!
I do hope I've inspired you this month, to play.
A big thanks to "Island Batik"
"Favorite Things" by Wendy Bentley
