Recap of Week Two of the Tool Craze Blog Hop and Giveaway!

Hello, fellow quilters!

We’ve come to the end of another exciting week of the Island Batik Tool Craze Blog Hop, and it was truly remarkable! Our skilled Ambassadors had a great time exploring the creative possibilities with tools from Deb Tucker’s Studio 180 Design. They impressed us once again with their stunning quilts, each one more inventive and vibrant than the previous. Sadly, the Blog Hop is ending next week, but we still look forward to the striking creations it will bring! So, get your fabric, thread, and sewing machines ready!

If a specific collection, featured during the Tool Craze Blog Hop is calling your name, check your local quilt shops this month – they might already have it in stock! To see what quilt shops carry Island Batik in your area, please visit our store locator and type in your zip code.

Don’t fret if you missed any of the quilts showcased during this week; we’ve got you covered with a brief recap! Under each quilt image you will see a note on the Studio 180 Design tool used as well as direct links to learn more about the designer’s process. Additionally, some of the Ambassadors are doing bonus giveaways, so make sure to check them all out!
