Tool Talk Blog Hop and Giveaway!

Attention quilters! We have some exciting news for you! For the second time, we are joined by our friends from Deb Tucker’s Studio 180 Design for the Tool Talk Blog Hop! During the next four weeks, our Ambassadors will be stitching with a tool that is new to them. The tools are designed to make a specific unit in many different sizes, so you can work with small units to make a miniature or large units to make a large quilt. We can’t wait to see what they make! 

If you’re new to Studio 180 Design, their fabulous team is renowned for their quilt tools, patterns and companion products that make quilting easier and more fun. Using Deb Tucker’s tools ensures accuracy and precision for the best results in all your quilting projects. Stay tuned as we share quilts created by our Ambassadors and tools they used. Make sure to visit their blogs for step-by-step process, gorgeous detail shots, and 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 this month! They will also be using products from our sponsors – Aurifil, Hobbs Batting, Schmetz Needles and Prairie Spirit Alpacas. We hope that you will follow along to see their wonderful quilts and get inspired to dive into what fun blocks these fantastic tools can create!

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 Spring 2022 Collections, that will start appearing in your favorite fabric stores this month!
