Uphill Downhill Quilt

 Introducing...the Uphill Downhill quilt!

 This quilt was made with Island Batik's new Paisley Park fabric collection.  These fabrics were generously provided to me by Island Batik for this project.  Thank you so much!

 This quilt features two crossing blocks with lots of flying geese units.

 The second block has slightly different construction and showcases the purple and white fabrics.

 It's backed in another beautiful blue Island Batik fabric.  Swoon!

 I used Warm and Natural cotton batting by the Warm Company.  It always quilts beautifully and makes for a cuddly warm quilt.

 I quilted with Superior Threads King Tut in Wisteria Lane.

 This quilt looks ready for a crisp Spring evening on the front porch.

 I feel so lucky to be an Island Batik Ambassador and get to sew with these color drenched fabrics every day.  I love, love, love Island Batik fabrics!

 The simple straight line quilting diagonally out from the center is a great accent for this crossing block design.

 I used the same purple fabric as the outer border for my binding.

 This is an intermediate level quilt pattern.  If you've been making beginner quilts for a while and are looking for something a bit more challenging, this may be a good fit for you.

 The Uphill Downhill quilt is waiting for me tonight.  I hope I can get a little relaxation time with this quilt and watch Jeopardy!  That record breaking contestant made it over $1,000,000 last night!  Did you see it?
