Island Batik Ambassador Program: May Challenge

This month, the Island Batik Ambassadors were given the challenge to create a project using our assigned Studio 180 tool and a half yard bundle of Island Batik fabric.
I was assigned the Celebrate collection by Kathy Engle, and the Tucker Trimmer I tool. Celebrate will be shipping to quilt shops soon!
This tool makes it quick and easy to make accurate half square triangles.

I used all 20 designs in the collection and made 30 units in two sizes to create a table runner. I chose Slate from Island Batik's Bodacious Blacks collection to really set off the bright, happy colors of Celebrate.
I had some fun with thread colors this time, using Henrik Mรผller's Aurifil collection, Proud & About.
I am a Schmetz lover for life! I usually use their 90/14 topstitch needles, but I find that their microtex needles work even better for batik fabric. 

This was a fun project! Many thanks to Island Batik, Deb Tucker Studio, and Schmetz needles.
