Island Batik Ambassador 2015

It has been too long since I posted something on this blog, but I've been really busy with lots of new exciting projects coming into view.

One of the big announcements is that I have been selected as an Island Batik Ambassador for 2015. 
Along with this honor comes freebies of fabric that I get to design with and/or giveaway! So, this year you'll see me participating in several blog hops that will include giveaways with beautiful new Island Batik fabric.

Here is a sneak peek at the first batch of fabrics that I got! The two larger (1 yard each piece) bundles are fabric groupings called "Haystack" and "Chickencoop". How is that for inspiration?

The smaller bundles are approximately 3" x 10" of each piece --just enough to really see what the motif is. Thinking something very scrappy but the colors will all coordinate beautifully.

Any ideas on what you'd make with these? These are all fabrics being released at Spring Market in May. I've got a few ideas already and will be participating in a blog hop this July featuring something from this group and giving away some fabric!

Many of last year's Ambassadors are participating in a bloghop called "Little Gems" that starts tomorrow. Check it out at Kauffman Designs.

I've also got a new quilt with pattern being released at Spring Market in the Island Batik booth -- "Woven Braid". I'll have a full post about this next month.
Looking forward to hearing from you out there in blog land.


  1. Beautiful fabrics Marlene and you will love being a Island Batik Ambassador! The little pieces are fun to use for mug rugs and table runners!

  2. Congrats on being an Ambassodor & getting samples of fabrics coming out. It's good to see your post today. Will you be going to Market in MN?
