As an Island Batik Ambassador, we receive two large boxes of fabric and wonderful supplies twice a year.  With these fabrics were are required to make monthly projects based on various themes throughout the year.  We also have two blog hops this year that we will be participating in as well.

I would love to show you some of the beautiful Items we received in our first box.

In the box, we receive various 2018 Island Batik fabric Collections, plus fabrics from their batik foundation collections which includes solid basics, blenders, and neutrals.  We also received two bundles of stash builders.

You will also notice we received five different Aurifil weighted thread to play with and use in our projects.

At the bottom of the box, under all the fabric was a generous supply of Hobbs batting to be used in finishing our projects.

I also found an Island Batik Rayon Scarf, buttons, and rayon fabric

The biggest surprise to the all of us was the big box from Accuquilt.  We all received a brand new Accuquilt Go package. WOW, WOW, WOW!

Basically, that is everything we receive in our first Island Batik boxes, our second shipment will be sometime in July.  

I want to give a big Thank You shout-out to Island Batik, Aurifil, Hobbs batting, and Accuquilt for all the beautiful goodies we have received so far.  Hopefully, you will enjoy the projects we design and I hope you will go out and try some of these products yourselves.
