Island Batik Alumni Ambassadors Blog Hop

Today I will show my project for the Spring Fling Use It Up blog hop. Some of the Island Batik alumni ambassadors, and some of the current ambassadors, are participating. 
The idea came from Alumni Patti, with the idea of "Use it up." We were to make any FUN - SMALL project. The goal is to use up our Island Batik scraps, leftover from when WE were blogging - with what was the current IB fabrics.
I have quite a few scraps:

I wanted to use my Accuquilt Go! cutter (I haven't used it in a while) and chose the Flying Geese die. I cut out more pieces than I needed. I did not use the yellows or the red and orange scraps, so another project is in the works with those. I liked using the blues, greens and sandy colors. I laid out two options:


I chose the second layout because of the movement I got with the flying geese units. I kept thinking SAND and SEA every time I positioned the units. So the title of my table runner is "OF SAND AND SEA."

And here is the final project, free motion machine quilted and bound:


But, darn it! I still haven't used up all the scraps of Island Batik fabrics! Perhaps, there will be another Alumni Ambassador Blog Hop. That would be fun!
Thank you for visiting.

Very nice. I like the layout you chose. Sometimes the simple ones are the best. If only I could remember that.
