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.
Flying geese are always fun, and this placemat works in either direction. The white geese really stand out on the shades of blue.
These placemats are adorable! I love them, but my daughter said she would only be able to use them for breakfast.
These placemats will cheer up any table with the bright colour combination.
The quilting on these placemats gives them a classy look. They go perfectly with the octagonal table.
These cheerful placemats are a way to use simple shapes and simple quilting to get an amazing result.
These placemats show the glow of the batik fabric, and the colourful quilting supports the triangular design.
These placemats are totally out of the box! The applique on the leaf shape is just so beautiful.
This set of placemats coordinates nicely even though they are all different. In my house, everyone would fight over which one is “theirs”.
These are so cute! They look like they could frolic right off the table.
These fancy placemats are three different sizes. The design shows off the brilliance of the fabric.
This set of placemats works both individually or as a group. Hope they don’t make you dizzy!
This elegant set is simple and beautiful.
These placemats are amazing! The colours and workmanship are outstanding.
These placemats are just fun. The embroidery gives a playful touch.
Here’s another blue and yellow set! I love the bargello design.
