First --Big thank you goes out to AQS who published our book and provided ebook copies to all the Island Batik Ambassadors (IBA). AQS is excited to share the book with everyone. Check out the link at the bottom of where you can get the book directly from them. And thank you to Island Batik who made sure we all had the latest fabrics (including Leila) to use and showcase the blocks in the book.
Second--Thank you to each IBA who agreed to jump in and help us show off the latest fabrics but also introduce new people to our book.
Each IBA will have made 1-3 of the blocks in the chapter and may show you how they chose to put them together into a finished project (s). You won't want to miss seeing all the new fabrics and what everyone is doing, so please follow along over the next 4+ weeks as we see how each Island Batik Ambassador and the authors of the book, You Can Quilt! Building Skills for Beginners used the new Island Batik fabrics to showcase the blocks in each chapter of the book.
Which fabric collections each IBA used is still a secret, so stop by each day of the hop to see a new collection!
Here is the line-up:
Oct. 16 – Ch 4. Flying Geese - Maryellen McAuliffe http://teachpany.blogspot.com
Fabric bundles and books are being given away to 4 lucky people at the end of the hop. This is only eligible for U.S. residents. Be sure to use the Rafflecopter box to enter the giveaways that will be posted on each person's blog and show each blogger some love with appropriate comments. Wouldn't you like some of these?
