#PTABloghop Winner and Save the Date

Were you as sorry to see this hop end as I was?  Were you as inspired by the colors and designs and quilting as I was?  The Ambassadors did a wonderful job with all the fabrics showcased.  And, now, or very soon, you can be using these collections in your quilts, too! Just ask your favorite store to carry Island Batik.  

I used to pick my winner, and Christi from North Carolina was the comment number drawn.  I'll be sending her an assortment of 5 FQs from Island Batik, plus a 5" roll (that was in the newest Ambassador shipment) and I'm throwing in 2 small spools of #Aurifil Mako 50wt thread, in 2600, Dove, which is perfect for piecing her next project.  I won a package of 10 spools, so I'm sharing!  I've been filling bobbins with one spool (usually about 3 1/2 bobbins for my Viking Sapphire 850) and then use the other new spool for the top thread. You can piece a lot of blocks and quilts with that much thread!  

I've been working on quilting designs in the purple/cream squares on my Ocean Waves quilt, and painting my "new" bathroom, among other things.  I've also been working with #IslandBatik London Fog on a project for the next hop.

This inspiring hop starts March 14, and goes through March 25.  You'll have lots of chances to win a copy of the book, and maybe even more!  You do want to get this book!  

You'll have to wait and see what I've done with Wendy's gorgeous design and stunning Island Batik fabrics.  I'm so excited to show you!  It's so pretty!  

Thanks so much for hopping along with the Island Batik Ambassadors!  I hope you join us as we share projects from Wendy's book!  See you soon!

I can't believe how lucky I am. I will use all of the these in something special. Thank-you so much! Christi
