Fall into Secondary Patterns with Island Batik.....

I should have called this post--better late than never!!! The assignment for JULY was secondary patterns. I had this design all ready to go and then as happens with everyone--LIFE!!

I started with these gorgeous fat eigths from the Pumpkin Patch collection that were given to me by Island Batik. You will also see some hand dyed wool I had in my stash that coordinate perfectly with this batik collection.

The 1 1/2" die #55470 from AccuQuilt made quick work of cutting all these little squares.

Love these stacks of gorgeous color.....

Spinning all the seams on the back make for a nice flat laying quilt top!!!

Now time to play....should I choose this combination....

....this one might be fun....

....could be a cute baby quilt...but I am going for a table center....

....this is the secondary design I was looking to find!!!

Now for some more fun---add some wool applique shapes using Fall Medely die #55041 from AccuQuilt. This makes such amazingly quick work of cutting this shapes!!

For these Ambassador assignments, I have been challenging myself to use some of the great features on the Bernina 790. Freemotion applique and quilting on the domestic machine uses a different muscle memory than doing it on the long arm quilting machine!! But I persevered and made it through. Not perfect--but a great challenge to myself!!

Extra fat eights from the Pumpkin Patch collection on the back.

Such quilty goodness!! I even changed thread colors 3 times!!

All ready for fall...let the crazy of harvest begin!!

It is only the farmer who faithfully plants seeds in the Spring, who reaps a harvest in the Autumn. B. C. Forbes

"While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, And cold and heat, And summer and winter, And day and night Shall not cease."
