Nectar Quilt and Pattern ~ New!

This is the Nectar quilt, one of my newest patterns.  It's featured in the Island Batik catalog.  This pattern is available in my Etsy shop and in select quilt shops across the USA.  I used Island Batik's new Bee Hive Buzz fabric collection to make this quilt.  Island Batik provided the fabric for this project.

These are the fabrics I used from the Bee Hive Buzz collection to make the Nectar quilt.  This is one of two quilts I made with this collection.  The other quilt is Beewax.  I made it for one of my Island Batik Ambassador projects this year.  You can see that quilt and read my post about the Beeswax quilt here:  Beeswax Quilt Blog Post

If you've been following me for a while, you know that I love fusible applique projects.  My favorite part is sewing little zigzag stitches around the edges of the patches.  I used matching Aurifil thread to secure my applique pieces for the Nectar quilt.  Aurifil makes the perfect color threads to match Island Batik fabric ~ so lovely!

Here's a pic of the center medallion block of the Nectar quilt, after quilting.  You can see I echo quilted inside the petals of the large flower.  I also echo quilted around the edges of the entire applique motif.

Here's a close up so you can see it a little better.  I used Hobbs Natural Cotton Batting and Schmetz needles.

The Nectar quilt is backed with this gorgeous yellow Island Batik fabric, and bound in black.

A few more glamour shots.  Here, on my front porch.
