Island Batik Ambassador 2018

In December, I read a post
by Island Batik stating that they 
were looking for Ambassadors 
for 2018.

I spoke to my Quilty Friend
She has been an Ambassador
for a couple of years, and she 
totally encouraged me to 
fill out the application. 

Well, I applied and ....

I WAS ACCEPTED!!!

Let's say I was a little
excited to be able to work 
with such beautiful fabrics
and be challenge by 
an exceptional group of 
talented quilter.

All of the ambassadors were
waiting patiently for the first box
of goodies to arrive.
Mine showed up on Thursday morning, 
but my kids enjoy the excitement of 
opening new fabrics as much as I do, 
so I waiting until the afternoon to open it up
with them and
look at all the beauties that they 
sent me.
All 22 pounds of it!!!




I am an ambassador for Island Batik, the products featured in this post were given to me by Island Batik.


There are oodles of fabric fun in my box.


I am especially in love with the 
pretty blues.
Aren't they just gorgeous!?



Two different types of
Hobbs Batting, which I am excited to 
try out as well
and to top it all
off


What quilting gal
doesn't love a good spool of thread
or 6 and a cone of Aurifil.

Thanks to Island Batiks for giving me this opportunity to 
be an Ambassador.

show off my Love project.
Thanks to Carol of Just Let Me Quilt
for hosting this fun hop. 

I first started off just 
thinking that I should 
do a mug rug, 



but that just wouldn't do.
It was cute and all, 
but it just wasn't quite what I was 
thinking.

free pattern HERE

Then, I decided to make some
a little different.

It is the fabric line
Woof Woof Meow by Stacy Iest Hsu for Moda.
You can find the fabrics HERE.






They have that pop art feel to them.
My daughter already has claimed the 
puppy and the kitty will be for my 
niece's birthday.

You can find the pattern 
on my Craftsy Pattern page, HERE.
It will be half off through 
February 14th. 


Please stop in to the rest of today's hoppers.

planned

We decided to start you

Supplies for the It's a "Wild" Life Block of the Month

Many have asked, what 
supplies do I need to start the
It's a "Wild" Life
Block of the Month?
I happened to make
a Facebook Live Video with
most of the information in it.
You can watch it HERE, if
you would like to see my Video Debut.

This will be a great opportunity 
to use those scraps or
the fabric stash that you have 
laying around in your 
sewing room.


Here are my Riley Blake scraps that 
I plan to use to accompany this
new beautiful set of fat quarters of
Bee Basics by Lori Holt.
There are 30 fat quarters
and a panel in this set. 
(I guess I need a few greens to add to my stash)
You can find the fat quarter bundle at


Thank you to Riley Blake for providing me

with this lovely Outdoors Wood Grain Cream
from The Great Outdoors line
to be used for the background of my quilt.
If you want all of your background to be the 
same, you will need 4 yards of fabric.
There are a few shops that
carry this color -

I also recommend for the applique 
block that you pick up some brown
and green threads to coordinate with your fabrics
to applique stitch around the design.  
We will be using other colors as well, 
but these we will use the most.

You can find a huge array of
Aurifil threads at 
and Craftsy.

And of course since we are doing some
applique work, you will
need sewable fusible adhesive.
    I only use HeatnBond Lite
or if you dislike tracing all of
your pieces
you will fall in love with these
They work absolutely wonderful 
for smaller pieces. 

I also forgot to mention 
what is the best way to 
store those finished blocks.
I love to store my BOM blocks in
a plastic scrapbook paper case
like this one.


I picked this one up
at my local Michael's store 
for less than $5.
It is a great way to store your blocks
for the entire year, and 
not worry where you last saw it.
(Maybe, I am the only one with that problem)


I am overjoyed that you are
planning to join us for the 3rd Annual
Sew Incredibly Crazy and Friends Block of the Month.

There is no sign-up for this
Block of the Month.
The blocks are absolutely free
for the month that they have been released.
After that, there will be a small fee.
Here is the full schedule.

If you would like to join our Facebook group, 
please stop in HERE.


 We can't wait for all the fun to begin!

Textured BoHo Cowl

I found the prettiest pattern
for a crocheted cowl 

This is the eighth one that I have 
made over the last month.
They made such great Christmas 
gifts.


This one has to be my favorite.
I chose to make this one from Alpaca yarn.
I picked it up on Craftsy at their
year end clearance.
It was a great deal and I 
couldn't pass it up.
The wood buttons I found over at 
my local craft store.


The color of the yarn is so rich and beautiful.
I love all the little fibers that seem to 
find their way out of the stitches.
It gives it such a lovely texture.


I picked up 4 skeins, but only needed
2, so I guess I can make another
to give as a gift.

The pattern for this cowl is free over at 
She has some beautiful patterns on
her blog.
