Island Batik January 2021 Challenge

Island Batik Placemat Challenge graphic with title.

The 2021 Island Batik Ambassador Challenge for January was to make placemats. They could be any size or shape – they just had to be made with the beautiful Island Batik Fabric.

It is so interesting to see all the different colours and designs.

I always love a blue and yellow colour combination, so this collection by Denise caught my eye immediately.

Denise Looney - blue and yellow rug placemats.

Flying geese are always fun, and this placemat works in either direction. The white geese really stand out on the shades of blue.

Gail Sheppard - Blue flying geese placemats.

These placemats are adorable! I love them, but my daughter said she would only be able to use them for breakfast.

Preeti harris - striped placemats with applique.

These placemats will cheer up any table with the bright colour combination.

Connie Kauffman - colourful striped placemats.

The quilting on these placemats gives them a classy look. They go perfectly with the octagonal table.

Jane Hauprich - bold triangles placemats.

These cheerful placemats are a way to use simple shapes and simple quilting to get an amazing result.

Claudia Porter - purple and pink placemats.

These placemats show the glow of the batik fabric, and the colourful quilting supports the triangular design.

Brianna Roberts - bright on black placemats.

These placemats are totally out of the box! The applique on the leaf shape is just so beautiful.

Suzy Webster - applique leaf placemats.

This set of placemats coordinates nicely even though they are all different. In my house, everyone would fight over which one is “theirs”.

Andi Stanfield - fresh start placemats.

These are so cute! They look like they could frolic right off the table.
