So much news! First, The Island Batik Ambassador challenge for January 2021 was Placemats. I couldn't decide what to do, or which season I needed placemats for. I have for Valentine's, Spring, and regular time, and have other fabric for July, but not batik, so I grabbed the scraps from the quilt above (new pattern for Stars and Bars coming soon). The collection is Freedom 2, which is shipping to stores now. I know precuts are available, and fabric will be coming soon. I make tumbler flags, and thought it would be fun to use the Accuquilt GO! 4" tumbler die for placemats. I decided 6 across by 3 rows would be a good size, and made 6. I had scraps left, so cut more shapes and alternated the colors for a patriotic table runner.
Island Batik Ambassadors are doing a blog hop starting February 1 (tomorrow) for Create for a Cause quilts using the new Fall 2020 Collections. Please go to Island Batik to enter to win this week's give away and the schedule.
Thanks for reading! I told you there was a lot of news!
