Hi, and thanks for stopping by to read my blog.
First, I'm delighted and so honored to be accepted as an Island Batik Ambassador for my 9th year. This amazing program is so much fun, because I get to play with gorgeous batiks, plus batting from Hobb's, and Schmetz needles and Aurifil Thread, Then there's the Accuquilt GO! die cutting system, Patterns by Annie bag, and even a Funky Friends Factory toy this year. The challenges make me grow as a quilter and designer, and I work with the best team of ambassadors and awesome people like Natasha, our coordinator. We've received our boxes, and you'll see the video of me opening it soon. The fabrics are gorgeous, and I can't wait to share the monthly challenges with you.
Our January challenge is to use the Gradations bundles in a lap quilt, and mine is well on the way. I plan to add a little more to my original design, and then borders, and hopefully you'll see it next week, but in the meantime, I'm using this bundle of gorgeous purples. Check with your favorite shop for yardage, or ask me to make a fat quarter bundle for you.
