2019 Island Batik Ambassador

Yup, I am one lucky duck! I am again serving as an Island Batik Ambassador. I can’t tell you what a privilege this is…but I’ll try. We are treated so well by Island Batik; in return we do a little “work” for them. We create quilts or other projects each month according to an assignment. Twice during the year we receive a box of goodies – yardage from Island Batik, batting from Hobbs, thread from Aurifil and this year dies/cuttter from Accuquilt. I am spinning with delight at the generosity of all these companies.

Disclosure:  Island Batik along with their partners, Hobbs Batting, Aurifil Thread and Accuquilt have provided me the items I received free of charge.  

Now for the fun…here is my video of the unboxing. Its a little long, but I had a good time!

The last two weeks I had the privilege of giving away two nice hunks of my Island Batik fabrics, one to Donna H for the B&W Blog Hop and one to Michele T for the Island Batik Getaway Blog Hop. Its so much fun to share with you my good fortune.

I am furiously working on a few secret blocks for the Partners in Design QAL – announcement on February 26th and begins March 12. For the first time I am hosting, so I really need to test a few blocks for my fellow designers. I also am working on the Bea’s Quilt the Book Hop (2/18) and Carla’s Show Your Wings Blog Hop(2/19) not to mention the February Island Batik Project. Then, I fley to Nashville for Quilt Con!!
