Regular readers know that December and January were bleak months for me and that I did not post my December Island Batik challenge quilt on time. Slowly things are starting to come back to normal, or at least the new normal for me.
If you can forgive me for my lateness, I’d like to show you my December Island Batik Ambassador challenge quilt.
The December challenge was called Whimsical and Wonky, which we could interpret however we wanted. I had several ideas but in the end I decided to make a wonky star table runner.
Some people find wonky kind of hard to do. There was a time when I would have agreed. Then I had a breakthrough of sorts and found a way to create wonky stars quickly and easily. Here’s a tutorial for creating a wonky star if you want to give it a try.
To create the stars, I used Christmas fabrics from several Stash Buster rolls. Stash Busters are rolls of 5” x WOF strips and are a great way to add to your batik stash.
I added a wonky prairie point border by creating prairie points in different sizes and arranging them randomly.
I quilted the table runner with snowy swirls and snowflakes.
For the quilting, I quilted swirls of snow. Every once in a while I added a snowflake.
Here are the quilt details:
