Island Batik Getaway Blog Hop

The fabrics shown in this post were given to me by Island Batik
Deb Tucker’s Twilight Chic by Island Batik

Well, if you can’t getaway, go to the library for a good book! The Utica, NY Public Library opened in 1904. I love the inside of this Library.

Shaded Chic

The upper floors of the Utica Library are made of thick glass. I used to love coming here as a child.

In every box of fabric we Island Batik Ambassador’s receive, there is a secret bundle of the newly released batiks. I was lucky enough to be assigned Twilight Chic by Deb Tucker for Studio 180 Design. This is my third quilt from the Twilight Chic line.

Shaded Chic is based on BlockBuster # 35 Hidden Blossoms.

Shaded four & Mirror Image Sliver Units

Each block has 8 Shaded Four Patch units and 8 Sliver units.

This block is made using Studio 180 Design’s Tucker Trimmer I & Corner Beam tools with the Shaded Four Patch & Sliver Technique Sheets.

Shaded Chic consists of nine 12″ blocks and measures 50″ x 50″.

Be sure to visit Island Batik to enter their give away of 20 fat quarter bundle.

    What a gorgeous quilt! And that library! If I lived there I would spend every day in it. What a beautiful place to sit and think and read.

    What a gorgeous quilt and it fits in at the library so well. You have an amazing library!! Ours was build maybe 10 years ago and of course has no history or special details to see. Just a standard building like every other one in the area.

    What a fantastic location for a quilt photo shoot! I can’t believe I haven’t thought of going to our state library or museum to do that….. I will have to do some exploring in that direction. Your quilt is beautiful and looks amazing in that setting.
