I can’t believe it is the end of June already! This year is whizzing by! For this months Island Batik Ambassador challenge we had no brief to follow, It was a free theme and we could do whatever we wanted.
I wanted to make a scrappy quilt and I had some of the lovely Smooch (designed by Kathy Engle) Fabric left from last months project that I wanted to use along with some other scrap pieces I had from previous projects. I used these pieces for the stars and a selection of low volume and solid prints for the background.
For my stars I used 3 1/2″ finished half square triangles keeping the same background for each quarter of the block, to create 6″ uniform squares in the background.
I quilted using my favourite matchstick technique that takes forever to do and uses up oh so much thread, but I do love the finish and its well worth it in the end.
Its been another great challenge, and I love how my quilt turned out! thankyou so much to Island Batik and industry partners for giving us the awesome supplies to work with!
Thankyou so much for reading!
Stay Safe all!
Until next time….
Happy Sewing! xx
