An Island Batik Adventure
What better project for the cold and wet we are experiencing this time of year than “Cozy Cabins.” Once again, as I try to minimize the number of Works in Progress I have in my studio, I thought of something simpler for this month’s Island Batik Ambassador project.
I love log cabins! At first I thought I’d do a table runner, but honestly, I have plenty of those and wasn’t very inspired. I also knew I didn’t want to do a full quilt. Ah Hah! Potholders! These will also make great stocking stuffers.
Many of the Island Batik bundles come tied with these really cool ties and they made for a perfect loop to hang the potholders with. I also used insul-bright batting to keep the user from burning their hands. This stuff really works! I chose a hexagon shape, some simple quilting and here they are!
Full disclosure – after completing these potholders, I reread our instructions for November and we were supposed to do a larger project. I’m begging for forgiveness. If I lay them all out side by side, does that count??
Thank you to Island Batik for the fabrics used in this project and to Aurifill thread for supplying the threads.
