As a 2021 Island Batik Ambassador, I get to participate in monthly challenges. This is my design for the placemat challenge.
The fabric featured in this post was given to me by Island Batik.
I used the Epida Designs pattern – Fill in the Blanks Placemats.
This pattern has six different versions of the placemat. This one is the large option of the feature fabric variation.
It is a simple design, and it showcases the beautiful Island Batik fabric. These fabrics are from a variety of collections. They all work together beautifully.
The fabrics all have the same background and accent fabrics, but I chose four different orange fabrics to be the chains.
The simple quilting with decorative stitches adds a bit of fun without distracting from the fabric.
The curves in the stitches support the straight lines of the piecing.
It is fun to see patterns in different fabric combinations.
Be sure to check out all the other great placemats from the rest of the Island Batik Ambassadors.
