May brings a new Blog Hop! This month is all about Modern quilts, inspired by modern art and boasting bold colors and prints, high contrast and graphic areas of solid color. During the next three weeks of the Blog Hop, our Ambassadors will be exploring the world of Modern Quilting, tryin improvisational piecing, designing minimalistic blocks and using expansive negative space.
Our Ambassadors will be making their fabulous modern quilts with new Island Batik collections and products from our sponsors – Aurifil, Hobbs Batting, Schmetz Needles and AccuQuilt. We hope that you will follow along to see their amazing creations and get inspired to dive into Modern Quilting!
Every Friday we will be posting round-ups of the projects featured during that week and give away 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!
The fabrics, featured in this Blog Hop, are from the stunning Winter 2020 Collections, that will start appearing in your favorite fabric stores in May!
