July 2022 Unboxing

All the Island Batik Ambassadors look forward to the second shipment of supplies for the year that comes in July.  These wonderful products came in two very large boxes.  I was impressed when my UPS man carried them BOTH to the door at the same time!

It really feels like Christmas in July!  Here is a short video of the goodies in the boxes.

Below are some still photos.

First is a sneak peak when the boxes are opened.

Hobbs Batting sent 5 different battings to use.
Natural Cotton

Black and a roll of fusible batting strips

Cotton Wool Blend


A new sponsor this year is Prairie Spirit Alpacas.  They sent a pressing mat that is 50% Alpaca and 50% Wool.  They are a company in Canada.  The pressing mat is 12" x 18".  This is a new thing for me.  I've never used a pressing mat.

By Annie sent a pattern and all the supplies to make it.  Island Batik supplied the fabrics.  I'll be making the pattern called Clam Up.

Island Batik yardage of white, black and gray solids

Two Stash Buster Bundles and yardage of a neutral called Almond

A half yard bundle of Foundations- Solids, Blenders and Basics

A beautiful half yard bundle of the Island Batik Collection called Honeycomb and a light and dark Foundation to match.

Deb Tucker's Studio 180 sent each Ambassador a special Ruler to use with the above fabrics in our Sept challenge.  My ruler is Corner Pop II

This bundle is a Surprise!  The fabrics are not in the stores yet, so I can't show them.  You will see what I make with them in November

A 10" Stack of the Island Batik Collection called Beehive Buzz with  light and dark coordinating yardage.

Accuquilt Go!  sent each Ambassador the new Tree of Life Block on Board die.  We will all be making something using this die in July.

It looks like the next 6 months will be very exciting!  Many thanks to Island Batik and sponsors Hobbs Batting, Prairie Spirit Alpacas, Deb Tucker's Studio 180, By Annie, and Accuquilt Go!
