Island Batik Unboxing Summer 2019

All the items described in this blog post were given to me by Island Batik as a part of their Ambassador Program. 

Here's an overview of what arrived in my second Ambassador box from Island Batik this summer. 

The box arrived at my house more than two weeks ago, but I was away on vacation and couldn't open it until today.

This is what I found when the contents were revealed. Details of each item follows below.

Firstly a Spring 2019 Collection precut of 10" squares from Island Batik, the collection is called Kaleidoscope. I was also given two 2 yard cuts of a yellow and a purple from this collection.

This will make a vibrant rainbow quilt!

This Batik Foundations bundle  coordinates with the spring precuts I received, and contains eight half yard cuts, 4 basics & 4 blenders.

The Summer 2019 precut is Sand Bar, 40 pieces of 2 1/2" strips, in addition to two 2 yard cuts of a light and dark from this collection. I love the toned-down colors!

The Batik Foundations bundle that coordinates with the Sand Bar collection contains gorgeous colors and designs!

The last precut bundle is Blue Sea, an amazing collection of blues, purples and turquoise quarter yard cuts. This is a real treasure chest, and ideas are already spinning around on what to create from this beauty.

Each Island Batik Ambassador were also given a generous 4 yard cut of a neutral fabric. I received Almond, tiny dots of grey, purple, green and blue coming together in subtle swirls. A great background fabric.

The Ambassadors also received three 4 yard cuts of batik solids in black, grey and white. These batiks are great to use as backgrounds and contrast in quilts, and are wonderful to work with.

Later this year Island Batik is adding several new solids to their collection, go check it out on their website: Island Batik

Aurifil gave me these large spools of 50wt thread, #2905 Army Green will coordinate very well with the summer collection, while #2545 Medium Purple is going to look fabulous together with the spring precuts.

Hobbs Batting provided a queen-size cotton batting and two throw-sized battings, one cotton-wool blend and the other 100% wool. All the battings are wonderful to quilt with.

Last, but not least, AccuQuilt included a fabric cutting die in the Ambassador box. This will be used in the September challenge, I'm looking forward to that one!

Thanks to Island Batik and their industry partners for letting play and create beautiful quilts for the rest of 2019!

  1. I got sand bar too and love the color. Also received the canoe thinking hard about this one. Lastly, I needed the name of that piece of almond for my blog and there it was!


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave me a quick note!
