Say What? - Crazy Quilting with Island Batik and Aurifil

Say What? ... I say, it's day three of the Say What? blog hop. There have been some great projects and stories shared so far and today I am excited to show off my project. 

I went with actual words on my project for the challenge theme, some inspirational words in the corner of these Piecekeeper Project Bags.  I made one of these a few months ago and decided I needed a couple more. This is a free pattern from ByAnnie and is a good starter project if you want to start using some of her other patterns.

Also, for the month of April, Island Batik Ambassadors were asked to work with Aurifil Thread and incorporate Crazy Quilting into their project.

I was sent an Aurifil color builder set in the green color way. It is called Walking Palm. I have lots of Island Batik scraps, but I knew the Sunshine Garden scraps left over from my February Puff Quilt project would go perfect with these threads.

And the back of these Piecekeeper Project bags from ByAnnie are the perfect place to show off some crazy quilting! 

I had a good time playing with the different stitches on my machine. They all sewed up really nice with the Aurifil thread and my Schmetz needle. 

I even threw in a couple other Aurifil colors thread to complete the look.

The Walking Palm Color Builder set comes with three greens, two light greens and a variegated green. I added an orange and a light teal. They all blend well together.

The blue and the dark pink Aurifil colors were used to construct the bag.

Some of these thicker stitches turned out fantastic.

I like the little hearts too.

The thread and the fabrics look so well together.

These are such fun stitches. I would like to use them more, but I'm not sure know what projects 
to put them on. 

Say, what other projects can I use these fancy stitches for? If you have some suggestions let me know!

Happy Quilting!
