Winter Wonderland - November Island Batik Ambassador Challenge

I managed to finish this months challenge quilt, but it was indeed a challenge!  Not the fabrics, they were delightful!  Island Batik does not disappoint, this bundle was beautiful and so much fun to work with.  And the pattern, my own Jolie quilt, wasn't challenging.  It was the time factor that was my big challenge this month.  I am looking forward to a lighter schedule in December.  November was just a crazy month for me!

 Sorry for the crummy pictures, the lighting is mostly pretty bad this time of year.  It does show off the wonderful reindeer fabric I featured in the open blocks, though!
The block shows all the beautiful colors.  My favorite fabric was the gray/blue with snowflakes.  I love it!  The dark blue, red, and creamy background also have reindeers, but you can't tell when they are cut up - all you see is the beautiful color.  The polka dot fabric has a lot of variation of color in it - this quilt just uses a bit of it, but it is very pretty as well.
Aren't these graceful reindeer and snowflakes perfect for a winter quilt?  So pretty!  The touch of red in this quilt make it perfect for Christmas, but it will look wonderful hanging all winter long.  Look for the Frost and Merry and Bright collections in your local quilt shop!  If you like this pattern it is available as a digital download here.  (All my patterns will be half price in my Etsy shop for the month of December!)

Thanks for visting - I hope you enjoyed seeing what I created for this challenge.  Make sure you visit our other Island Batik Ambassador's and see what they have created:
