"RANDOM"

June brings a Create for a Cause donation month for the Island Batik Ambassadors. The ambassadors were given a tool by Deb Tucker Studio 180 Design. I received the V-Block tool. The ambassadors are donating their quilts to Sleep in Heavenly Peace. SHP distributes beds, pillows and blankets to children. Their motto is "NO KID SLEEPS ON THE FLOOR IN OUR TOWN!®." A bed; something that so many of us probably takes for granted.


June is also the PRISMS blog hop with Claudia Porter of Create with Claudia. Last month, I made a birthday quilt out of Island Batik Prisms. Prisms was designed by Kathy Engle for Create with Claudia. I had Prisms fabric leftover from May, so I used it in my charity quilt for June.


I used Electric Quilt 8 to design my quilt. I watched Deb Tucker on You Tube to see how she used the V Block. Once I decided on the design, I made my plan and away I went. I needed to make 120 single V blocks at the 6-1/2" size. I then sewed the 120 blocks together to make 60 pairs; the 60 pairs were sewed into 30 blocks. My quilt is 60" x 70" and it is comprised of 30 blocks.


I had 20 fabrics and I divided it by 120 squares, to see how many triangles to cut from each fabric. I cut my triangles with my V block tool.



I used Island Batik white solid for my left and right side. I used my Cutterpillar light box and mat.


Next, I chain pieced my V blocks throughout all of the sewing steps. The sewing process went relatively fast. I used my Bernina and Aurifil thread, along with my Oliso smart iron as my trusty helper. I also used Schmetz needles and Hobbs Batting.





I decided to call my quilt "Random", because I just sewed blocks together randomly.



Janice Roy longarmed my "Random" quilt and my "Party Time" quilt from May.

Both quilts feature Prisms. I really like how "Random" turned out; it looks like pinwheels and it brings me contentment, knowing that it will keep a child warm.





Deb Tucker's tools are absolutely amazing. They make sewing so easy, accurate and fun.


Look for Island Batik Prisms, designed by Kathy Engle for Create with Claudia at Creekside Quilts and Jellyrollfabric.net.
