If you follow my blog then you know that I really love batiks and enjoy creating with them. Batiks are fantastic for raw edge applique as there is very little fraying with them. My box of fabric is supposed to be here Monday and I can’t wait!
Who would have thought that when I bought this Espresso strip pack in October of 2011 that I would someday be an Island Batik Ambassador!
You can visit Island Batik’s website where you can see all the batiks and they also have a section of FREE patterns. Next be sure and stop by their blog and enter their huge giveaway as part of National Craft Month. Also follow Island Batik on Facebook and Pinterest.
I have really been on the go this week! On Monday I had a block tutorial on Inspired by Fabric as part of the Star Sampler Blog Hop. There are 9 different blocks in the hop and don’t forget the giveaway! You have 9 chances to win one of 3 bundles of Marblehead Venetian Glass by Ro Gregg for Fabri-Quilt. Just visit Inspired by Fabric and leave a comment each day of the hop.
Christa from Christa Quilts is doing a series on How to Make Quilting Your Business and I was interviewed by her for #6 Selling Your Work. Her series is very interesting and informative so be sure and check out the whole series.
I was also tickled to receive a email from AccuQuilt that I was in the Blogger Spotlight on their blog! I have been having so much fun
playing working with all of their new dies and I will be sharing more projects soon.
Their blog is fairly new and I have to admit that…..I didn’t even know they had one! You will find lots of great information on using your dies. If you have created an quilt or project using your AccuQuilt and dies be sure and share it on the Quilter’s Spotlight on AccuQuilt.
Tomorrow I will also be having a giveaway on my blog, you’ll have to wait until then see what it is but…..I think you will really like it! Also I want to take a moment and mention that I try and reply to all comments. Lately there have been quite a few no-reply bloggers which means I can’t reply to your comment and also……you can’t’ win giveaways.
