Introducing: Shop Hop! A cute, fun, and whimsical wall hanging or lap quilt.
Disclaimer: The products used to make this quilt were given to me by Island Batik and industry partners.
This is my second quilt and pattern that is featured in the new Spring 2022 issue of Quilter's World. This should be available in your local quilt shops now. Run out and get a copy before they're all gone!
I actually made this quilt a couple of years ago, for a different issue. It ended up not being used for that one, and I didn't even know it was going to be in Spring 2022 until I was paging through my copy. What a fun surprise!
The fabric collection I used was Soil and Seeds by Island Batik. It's a beautiful collection, but unfortunately, no longer in shops. You could still get this same look by using Island Batik basics and blenders in similar colors. The basics and blenders are always available. Alternately, you could go with a completely different color scheme. These blocks are fun to sew by mixing and matching fabrics to give each bag a different look.
Fuzzy helped me with the pressing of my fabrics.
Each block is sewn with a combination of piecing and fusible applique. I outlined the star flowers with a zigzag stitch in contrasting thread to help them stand out from the yellow background.
Aurifil threads for the piecing, fusible applique, and quilting.
I quilted in simple vertical lines spaced equally apart across the quilt.
The Shop Hop quilt has three borders.
I backed this quilt with this gorgeous dark brown Island Batik fabric. Yummy!
I used the same brown fabric for binding as the outer border.
