Island Batik - Sock Hop Blog Hop. The hop runs from January 12 to 25, And the full schedule can be found on my right sidebar.
Each participant will be featuring their choice of Island Batik's new fabric collections in a Classic Block.
My choice was the Stepping Stones quilt block.
Tutorial post planned for later this month!
Once I had settled on the Stepping Stones quilt block as my choice for a classic block, I used my EQ7 to design a quilt. Then I changed things up and made a negative setting too.
I asked my son Russell for his opinion. He favoured the one on the left in the positive setting. But I really liked the one on the right in the negative setting! It was just too hard to chose one over the other. So I worked out a plan, managing to make both quilts from the half yard cuts that were provided.
I got to use these gorgeous Island Batik fabrics from the new Cry Me A River collection.
Each quilt top finished at approximately 40" x 50"
And after writing that post for Monday on Quilting With Your Walking Foot for the Top 10 Tips for New Quilters series, I have been itching to finish piecing these tops so I can get quilting again!
I have chosen my backing. The binding has already been prepared and is ready to go. And am certainly looking forward to getting these two cuties quilted up for my Sock Hop Blog Hop post on January 25th.
Linking up to Finish it up Friday with

Which setting is your fave? Are you feeling the Positive? Or the Negative?
Keep On Quilting On!
