The Island Batik Challenge for March was a free month! We could decide to make what ever we wanted! What fun! SO MANY things came to mind! I had a hard time narrowing it down and actually made TWO projects for this month!
One of the first things that I thought of making was a rug. I've wanted to make one with Island Batik fabrics for awhile, but the challenge never came up. Here is the rug I made for this month.
I have made a couple rugs using 2 1/2" strips of scrap fabrics and scrap pieces of batting. That is a great way to use up loads of scraps, but it is very time consuming.
This time I used a 2 1/2" strip pack from Island Batik of the collection called Sunny Meadow by Kathy Engle. It's a Winter 22 Collection. I love the 2 1/2" strip packages. You can use them for so many things. I loved the colors in this collection.
I also used a roll of the 2 1/4" fusible batting strips from Hobbs. I've gotten a few rolls of the batting strips in past Ambassador boxes, but never used them. This was a great time to give them a try and they worked really well.
