One of the big announcements is that I have been selected as an Island Batik Ambassador for 2015.
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.
