Is it hot in here?

Island Batik is ready to help you cure the Summertime Blues with the Island Batik Ambassador Beat the Heat Blog Hop!

We decided to change things up for this Blog Hop! There will be weekly round-ups highlighting the Ambassadors and their quilts. The most exciting change is a weekly giveaway from one of the featured collections of the week! That gives you four opportunities to win gorgeous Island Batik fabrics!

The fabrics, featured in this month long blog hop, are from the stunning Spring 2019 Collections.

Twenty-seven Island Batik Ambassadors will be sharing projects every week using their “surprise” fabric bundle. The projects created are not predetermined, so we will be as surprised as you! It is always amazing to see the variety of ways the Ambassadors use the fabrics provided to them through the Island Batik Ambassador Program.

All the featured Island Batik collections will be coming to a quilt shop near you soon! Be sure to ask your local quilt shop if they are stocking one or, better yet, all these incredible collections. To find your local Island Batik shop, visit the Store Locator on our website, plug in your zip code or state, and your local shop will appear on the map! Super easy and helpful!

Island Batik collections are curated and include a variety of themed fabrics to create seasonal projects or to fit your style.

Be sure to visit all the incredible Island Batik Ambassadors’ blogs to discover inspiring creations.
