Island Batik January Challenge…

January’s Island Batik Ambassador challenge is called ‘Let’s get scrappy’

1 - Let's Get Scrappy

So what do you make when life gives you scraps… A table runner of course, using the beautiful lattice pattern, its a fantastic way to use up all those cute bits and pieces of fabric you couldn’t bare to throw away.

This table runner is 90″ x 18″, its designed for a 6ft dining table. Its made up of 22 blocks made with the four 2″ squares joined together, and 23 blocks made from four 2 1/2″ blocks separated by the 1″ white strips.

I added a point to each end, and a hand made tassel

I quilted flowers on each block using a bold red thread


Some of these reds and purples were taken from my last years Ambassadors box, and some from this years… I cant wait to show you what arrived in Box 1… be sure to join me here on the 29th January to see my un-boxing video

  1. What a great pattern for a table runner/quilt. Love the colours – so cheery on a grey day. Thanks for sharing – just found the Island Batik and am now visiting around the Ambassador crew.
