Rose of Sharon Project Featuring Island Batik Fabrics!
Island Batik played an integral role in the Rose of Sharon Project. Our beautiful Rose of Sharon fabric line was the flag ship of the project. Collaborating with our partner companies, we worked with the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s and to raise funds for Alzheimer’s research. We have been so pleased to see the number of fantastic quilts that have been made as a result of this initiative!
Here is a fantastic Rose of Sharon quilt sent to us by Ruth Funk. Well done Ruth!
Ruth wrote: “I just finished this quilt and wanted to share it with you. I began with a couple of blocks to put in a guild project as I’d decided to applique instead of piecing a sampler. I soon ran out of options and was so excited when I found your book.
I started in Sept 2011 and finished yesterday. Approx 1000 hours of needle turn applique and hand quilting. The quilt is 113 x 92 inches, machine pieced and assembled quilt as you go.”
