I am thrilled to announce that I have been selected as an Island Batik Ambassador for 2018! I’ll be posting lots of projects throughout the year using Island Batik fabrics and Aurifil thread. Some will be brand new patterns and others will be new versions of patterns from my books in batiks.
It may seem surprising that a modern quilter like myself would apply to participate in this project. However, several modern quilt pattern designers have been exploring the potential of these fabrics.
Plus, batik fabric designers are moving quickly into modern designs with different types of graphics (not just the traditional ferns and florals).
Colors are changing too–bolder and more vibrant! And some batiks read as near solids.
Stay tuned–this will be an adventure!!
