Island Batik July 2021 Challenge

Island Batik "Never Too Early" challenge graphic.

The Island Batik Ambassador challenge for July 2021 is called “Never Too Early”. The idea for this project is to make something for the end of the year. It could be a holiday project – Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. Or it could even just be a winter project.

Makers are always thinking ahead, so this is the perfect time to start a project that will take a while to finish.

Here are all the projects by the Island Batik Ambassadors. Click on the pictures for more information about the projects.

This Christmas wall hanging was made by Gail Sheppard. I love the pattern, and the quilting is outstanding.
