Island Batik Fabrics July Unboxing!
Island Batik is generous with their ambassadors in that they send us fabric and supplies for our monthly challenges. They send out two shipments each year. They send a January and July shipment.
So what did Island Batik send this time? Let's see.....
First up! This beautiful line is called Victorian for Carol Moellers designed by Kathy Engle. It is comprised of beautiful soft shades of green, purple-mauves, peaches and creams. It is shipping to stores now.
I will be using this fabric in my September Blog Hop so you will be seeing it soon.
For the September Blog Hop, we were provided rulers by Deb Tucker's Studio 180 Design.
I received the Corner Beam ruler. These rulers are fun to use because you don't have to be so precise when piecing your fabric together. Each block is trimmed at the end.
Island Batik also sends the ambassadors beautiful foundations and solid fabrics. These are available all year long and are great blenders.
They sent 1/2 yard cuts of all these wonderful colors to use for our challenges.
The little cute bundles on top of the neutrals are called, "Stash Builders. They are 5" wide by WOF and over 2 yards of fabric are in these bundles. Each bundle comes with 5 rolls. Aren't they cute.
4 yards of each grey, black and white solids are sent to use for contrast or backings.
We receive precuts too. Wow" Island Batik is so generous. These precuts are beautiful with lovely purples, blues, greens and yellows. They come with two 2 yard cuts of coordinating foundations fabric. This precut line is called Bee Kind! Isn't that the cutest name ever! So lets be kind to each other, yeah!
In the July box, they sent us a By Annie's pattern with all the supplies inside. For October's challenge, I will be making the, "Contain Yourself" cube set. I look forward to making these to organize my sewing room.
Hobbs Batting is also one of Island Batik's partners. They sent us five different batting types.
Hobbs Heirloom Black Batting
Hobbs Heirloom Natural Batting
Hobbs Tuscany Collection
Thermore Non-Bearding Batting
Fusible Batting Strips
Prairie Spirit Alpacas pressing mat made from 50% alpaca and 50% wool fibers. These mats are great to press your fabrics. This company joins us this year from Canada.
Check out this new die from Accuquilt! It is a block on board die. You can cut all your pieces all at once for your block. That is so cool and quick!
In my July challenge, I made a Christmas Tree and space shuttle with this die. You can learn more about it on my July's blog.
Thank you to Island Batik and Island Batik's partners for sponsoring the ambassadors and providing these fabrics and supplies. Thank you Prairie Spirit Alpacas, Hobbs Batting, Deb Tucker's Studio 180 Designs, Accuquilt and By Annie's Bags.
Take a look at the other Island Batik ambassadors blogs. They will be making some beautiful projects with their supplies too.
