Twice a year I get so excited when a huge box shows up from Island Batik! You are going to be so surprised at all of the goodies! Come take a look.
I’m finally getting settled in my new “temporary” quilt room and office. It feels so good to have all of my baskets of fabric setup and my AccuQuilt Go Cutter is ready to go.
Check out my new Island Batik Goodies!
Here is your first peek at what I received.
I made a video that shows what is in my box also!
I received 2½’ strips of the Spring 2019 collection of Black Pearl. Island Batik also sent 2 yards of a light and 2 yards of a dark fabric from the collection.
They also included eight ½ yard pieces that coordinated from their basics and blender batiks. These are always available.
Is is going to be so much fun to work with this collection!
There was a stack of 10″ squares from the Garden Party collection. You receive two 10″ squares of each fabric in the group.
I also received 2 yards of the red from the collection and 2 yards of a neutral that will go with the fabrics.
Island Batik also included eight ½ yard pieces of fabrics from the basic and blenders.
I always enjoy working with these bright and beautiful colors!
The next collection I received was Graphic Gems and are ¼ yard pieces. There are nineteen different pieces!
Solid and Neutral Batik Fabric
I also received a 4 yard piece of neutral fabric called custard. I really like using neutrals in my quilt designs.
Island Batik has also started making solid batiks. I was sent 4 yard pieces of white, black and grey.
Aurfil has been sending the ambassadors thread for several years which is also so neat. I received a purple 50wt Aurfil thread and an orange 50wt Aurifil thread plus a pink variegated thread. Aurifil thread is great thread for piecing and quilting.
Hobbs Batting also has been partnering with Island Batik and sending all of the ambassadors batting. Would you believe there are 50 Island Batik ambassadors this year! That is a lot of batting! I actually buy Hobbs batting by the bolt!
I received two 60″ x 60″ pieces from the Hobbs Tuscany Collection – one is 100% wool and the other is a wool/cotton blend. There was also a queen size cotton batting.
AccuQuilt started partnering with Island Batik this year and in the first ambassador bundle everyone received a Go Fabric Cutter and the 8″ Qube. This time we all received various dies. In my box was the Crossed Canoe die which can be used to make beautiful quilts.
I have been guest blogging for AccuQuilt for several years and have quite a few of their dies and all of the Qubes. I love how easy it is to cut out fabric with them and the dog-eared corners make it so easy to piece.
Be sure to check out the current Accuquilt deals and current offers!
It is going to be so much fun to create quilt projects for the rest of the year using all of these wonderful quilt supplies!
Would you like to see what I have received in past ambassador boxes? I have a page that shows every box I have received. I was one of the very first Island Batik ambassadors in 2014. Wow, where does the time go!
