Something exciting is (has been!) a’brewing over in the sewing rooms of the amazing Island Batik’s Ambassadors! They are contributing to a 2-week long Creative New Quilts blog hop that is going to be happening at Island Batik’s Blog, giving my original book projects total makeovers with totally batik-y twists! So far, I have only seen a sneak peek or two. I love what I’ve seen so far, and I am excited (super excited!) to see what these wonderful Ambassadors have done!
Among all the quilty eye candies, you will get to see versions of my Winter Blues quilt done in new and upcoming Island Batik lines. The original quilt (mine) is also made with Island Batik’s fabrics. This quilt is actually a nod to my “former life”, more details on that later!
So, here are the dates! Be sure to visit these very talented ladies not just on the scheduled dates, but how about now…. to get to know them? :) Each as something to offer!
Friday, March 25 – Lemon Tree Snippets
And I am grateful to all who have taken part. Anything something like this happens, so often, we overlook the time and effort in coordination to make everything come together. The idea of the hop happened sometime late summer last year, if I remember correctly, and then, it was pounding out the general idea, and then all the work at Island Batik’s end in finding out who wants to tackle which projects, and what fabrics, and how much fabric etc? You get the idea. So, a huge shout out to Island Batik for supporting the quilting community! One way to show our appreciation is to check out some Island Batik fabrics the next time we are shopping for fabrics?
