Lone Star Blog Hop - Week 1

Here is the posting from the Island Batik Blog about our last blog hop of the year-

The final challenge of this year’s Island Batik Ambassador season is here! This month, the Ambassadors will be using fabrics from our newest collections to create striking quilts for the Lone Star Blog Hop. One of the oldest and most popular patterns, Lone Star offers endless design and color possibilities and we can’t wait to see what they make!

The first two finished quilts will be revealed today, so if you want to try your hand on a unique yet traditional quilt, make sure to visit the Ambassador’s blogs for any tips and tricks to make your quilting process as smooth as possible along with gorgeous detail shots, and… bonus giveaways! 

Our Ambassadors will be making their quilts with batiks from the latest Island Batik collections that will start shipping to your favorite fabric shops in January. They will also be using products from our sponsors – AccuQuilt, Aurifil, Hobbs Batting, Schmetz NeedlesDeb Tucker’s Studio 180 Design and Prairie Spirit Alpacas.

Every Friday we will be posting round-ups of the projects featured during that week and giveaway bundles of the new Island Batik collections, highlighted during the hop. Be sure to visit all the Ambassadors’ blogs to discover their inspiring creations, read the stories behind each project and participate in their bonus giveaways!
