Poker with Studio 180 Designs and GIVEAWAY
Scroll to the bottom of this page for link to the giveaway.
I made this fun quilt with Midnight glow: a new fabric collection from Island Batik and a tool from Studio 180 Design. I named the quilt Poker.
This lap quilt is 62" by 66", a perfect throw size quilt.
I was given a tool from Studio 180, a Diamond Rect's ruler.
This ruler helps get really nice pieced diamonds . I was VERY impressed.
I cut diamonds according to the cutting guide.
I set them on point with the half rectangles , and then trim down with the ruler. Easy peasy and quick!
I pressed them flat on my alpaca mat by Prairie Spirit, and then pressed the triangles out.
There are 20 beautiful fabrics in this line and I chose my favorites for this quilt. That purple one on top is MY NEW FAVORITE fabric EVER. It is the perfect purple.
I used that perfect purple for a border and the binding.
I quilted the quilt with a design I have had forever but have never used. It is Spiral and Bubbles by Wasatch Quilting. It stitches up so very beautifully. I used my fav batting, Hobbs Heirloom. It always stitches up beautifully.
I took my quilt out to visit some beautiful gardens at Hovander park near Bellingham WA. What a nice place for some pictures. I love taking my quilts outside for some great pics.
