I am happy and thrilled to announce that I will be an Island Batik Ambassador for the 4th year in a row!! All of you know how much I love batik fabrics and working with Island Batik is a dream come true! Getting my Island Batik Ambassador acceptance had me doing the happy dance! Thank you Island Batik!
I will share my first project as an Island Batik Ambassador for 2018! I hoard my leftovers from projects and try to find small projects to use them. Mug rugs are something I never get tired of making! Size doesn’t matter……I have little ones and big ones, it just depends on my scraps
I used the Cherry Berry collection for the Back to School blog hop and just love all the bright, beautiful fabrics! I made a huge Scattered quilt in September and then made huge king size pillows in October for the Creative Borders project!
Several of the batiks in the collection were used earlier for a couple small projects…..in fact I just finished one of them yesterday and I’ll share it soon.
I think the scraps from my Scattered quilt is what I have used. I remember sewing the small pieced into a long strip which has eventually evolved into a mug rug!
I keep mug rugs out in my living room on the tables and after putting away all of the Christmas mug rugs, I was inspired to make a couple new ones. It is freezing here in Iowa and the colors in this make me think of Spring!
I had forgotten about this quilt! I made the Swirly quilt using the Cherry Berry collection in May for the Modern Batik Challenge.
I hope you will enjoy all of the new quilts and projects that I’ll share in 2018!
This month we will be doing our final blog hop for the 2017 Ambassadors.
