African Penguin 20" x 20"
Designed and made by Connie Kauffman
This October Island Batik Ambassador's Challenge was an interesting one. Aurifil is one of the sponsors for the Island Batik Ambassadors and this month they headed up the challenge. Aurifil is collaborating with Earth League International and has bundled their Color Builder thread packs to coordinate with 12 different endangered species. Each Color Builder box contains three large 40 wt spools of thread that coordinate in color with the animal it is representing.
The twelve animals they are presenting are: Siberian Tiger, Red Panda, Sea Turtle, Iberian Lynx, Pink Land Iquana, Whale Shark, Smatran Tiger, Blue-Throated Macaw, Wild African Dog, Cross River Gorilla, Pangolin and African Penguin. Go to Aurifil Threads to see some lovely photos of the animals and the colors of threads in the collection.
The Color Builder box I received was for the African Penguin and contained white, gray and black spools for me to work with.
