Blog Hops and Quilt Alongs

Globetrotter Blog Hop

Hi friends!

Today is my day on the Globetrotter Blog Hop! 


What is Globetrotter? It’s an awesome fabric line designed by Tammy Silvers for Island Batik. I was lucky enough to get to play with the fabric last spring. 

I was challenged to use the fabric in a small project that could be used in Tammy’s booth at spring Quilt Market. I had been working on a new pattern and thought it would be perfect for this as there was a runner as part of the pattern. 

The pattern is called Split Strip and here is the runner:

I quilted the runner using straight lines.

I had so much fun making the runner, I decided to use the fabric to make a quilt as well. This is an EQ image as the quilt is currently traveling and I don’t have a picture of it!

The fabrics are a fun mix of images inspired by travel-  suitcases, travel signs and places on Tammy’s bucket list! I love the colors. Not my usual color choices which is why it was so fun to use them. Inspired me to try new color palettes!

Here is the whole line:

  1. My small rulers tend to be scattered but I do keep the really large ones on nails behind my sewing room door. They are out of the way and I always know where to find them.

  2. My hubby made me a storage stand. He took a piece of scrap lumber and cut slits vertically across it, about 1 – 1 and a half inches apart. It is pretty thick, so very stable. I can put rulers in the slots, but also have room in between to store other rulers. He is pretty handy!!

  3. Your table runner is striking in those fabrics. I have more rulers than my holder (made by a friend’s talented hubby) can handle.
