The challenge for the Island Batik Ambassadors in March 2021 is to make a scrappy project. I love scrappy quilts. The variety of fabrics gives interest and depth to a project.
The nice thing with using the same type of fabrics within a project is that even though it is scrappy, it still has a unified look. Batiks look beautiful in anything.
Here are the March projects. Click on the images for more information.
My project is a pojagi window hanging. I love the glow of the fabric.
This fun quilt by Sally Manke has so many different fabrics in it.
Jane Hauprich made this quilt with lots of squares.
I love this beautiful fall piece by Connie Kaufman.

This quilt is not what I picture when I hear “scrappy”. The layout is an amazing use of fabric and colour! By Jennifer of Curlicue Creations.
The Scrapbuster Express quilt by Emily Leachman is so cute! It almost makes me wish I had a toddler to make one for (but not quite).

This piece by Denise Looney shows how scraps can be a work of art.
When I saw this piece by the Inquiring Quilter, suddenly I needed a purple and green quilt.
