September brings a new Island Batik Blog Hop! Imagine this: 25 amazing Ambassadors, each assigned with a latest Island Batik collection, and a single mission – to create an intricate paper pieced quilt. Can you feel the gentle anticipation in every stitch? Paper Piecing is a technique that offers endless design possibilities, so we’re all gathered here eagerly awaiting all the imaginative ideas and stunning quilts the participants of the Hop will bring to life! So, settle in with a comforting cup of tea, nestle into your coziest chair, and let’s embark on this quilting journey together.
The requirements of the Blog Hop are simple: use one of the paper piecing techniques and as many fabrics in the assigned Island Batik collection as possible to create an eye-catching paper pieced showstopper!
We hope that seeing all of the wonderful quilts that we will share in the next 3 weeks will inspire you to make something great. If you’re new to Island Batik Blog Hops, there will be a total of THREE giveaways where you get a chance to win a Fat Quarter bundle of a collection featured during the event – the first is live right now and you can find it at the bottom of this post! Be sure to check each of the Ambassador’s posts as many of them will be offering their own giveaways – all the more reason to enjoy the Pieced to Perfection Blog Hop!
