Stairway to Heaven

Here is the Stairway to Heaven...

Stairway to Heaven

I really enjoyed working with these gorgeous fabrics from Island Batik Foundations.

Nature Inspired?

Stairway to Heaven was published in Annie's One Day Quilts.

One Day Quilts

When I think of easy patterns and quick quilts, I think of rail fence. 


Choose fabrics carefully and let them do the hard work while you enjoy the compliments :-) 

Thanks to Island Batik for providing the fabrics and Thanks to Annies for publishing the pattern/quilt.

Quilt in Magazine atop the Quilt :-)

Here are some more pictures.

Fall-ing for you!

And one last look.

I am in love with you!

I will be sharing with all my favorite linky parties. See full list on the sidebar. 
As always I love when you "link" your comments/thoughts with my blogpost :-D

In other news, I have been working on the October Challenge for Island Batik, which is sponsored by Accuquilt. We have to make a quilt/project using the North Carolina Star Block on Board Die
I made an audition block. More to come.
