Jewel Carvings and TGIFF

I’m hosting TGIFF this week … see the Linky party below ….

A long time ago, in my quilting studio, I had the opportunity to use the fantastic Island Batik collection “Jewel Carvings” by Kathy Engle. It was for a quilt for the Island Batik catalogue. You can check it out HERE – on p.99. I absolutely LOVED working with this collection. It is SEW pretty with the teals, greens and soft yellows and purples …

Here is the quilt I made using Island Batik’s solid black fabric for the background.

My friend, Amy, tested my pattern and made the quilt with a light background. This quilt used the exact same fabrics with “Milkshake” as the background.

Here’s the 2 quilts together … which one would you make?

You have an opportunity to win!

If you’re loving the fabrics in these quilts, Island Batik is giving away a fat-quarter bundle of Jewel Carvings and Nightshade! Both lucious collections! (But you better hurry, the offer ends on Friday night)

    • Thanks, Jennifer! Amy quilted the light one – she’s an expert when it comes to ruler quilting! I’ve learned so much from her!
      Thank you for faithfully hosting Wednesday Wait Loss!


  3. This is hard to choose. They are both terrific, but the black has so much drama. It depends on what you want, drama or soothing, which is the white background.

    • Thanks, Sandra. My friend, Amy, quilter extraordinaire, quilted the light one, all ruler quilting, and I quilted the dark one, a combo of ruler and free motion. Island Batik definitely has wonderful batiks! 🙂
