What a great way to start the new year- with a Scrappy Challenge! The first monthly challenge for the 2020 Island Batik Ambassadors is to make a Scrappy Quilt. I LOVE scrappy quilts. I love my Island Batik fabric so much that I save every workable scrap I can. This year Island Batik has a schedule when we post our unboxing videos. My posting day is the 24th, but we could go ahead and work on our Scrappy Challenge- so I did!
One way to add variety to your fabric collection is with the Stash Builder Bundles which Island Batik carries. Each roll contains 4 strips 5" x WOF (width of fabric), and each bundle contains 5 rolls. Check these out- they are great.
I named this quilt Star Crossed- can you see the stars? Sometimes you see diamonds and sometimes stars. I quilted lines running thru part of the stars which gave me the name Star Crossed. Here is a close up of some of the quilting.
The quilt is basically a two block quilt so it was easy to create using scraps. The blocks in the borders are a bit different with one block only have two triangles in the corners and some blocks just a solid square.
Can you guess how many fabrics are in the quilt? Hint- each block (except for the solid blocks in the borders) has two different colors...
