Starstruck with Island Batik

The challenge for all Island Batik Ambassadors in September was to sew something using stars. I've been away or occupied almost all September, but this last week I played with these beautiful batiks from a line called "Check it out". Just look at those colours. Click the link and see more of this line. And then I had to try the black solid. I didn't really know that batiks came as solids, until I was sent this fabric from Island Batik.

All fabrics and thread used in this project is given me by Island Batik and partner Aurifil.

 I love to make table runners, and this one is 13"x40". I like how these wonky stars came out. This evening I put on the binding and hand sewed it to the back side.

I also made some other stars earlier this month. They were just perfect for some nice pincushions.

And there are more stars. I'm really starstruck this month. Remember the fabric rolls I gave to my German friends in May? One of the girls made this Dresden plate star. Isn't it beautiful?

My fellow ambassadors also made their starstruck projects this month. One of the sweetest little things made you can find hereIn this blogpost you can find the links to all the other ambassadors.
Thank you for visiting my blog.

  8. Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this website. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's hard to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and appearance. I must say you've done a awesome job with this. In addition, the blog loads super fast for me on Internet explorer. Superb Blog!
