Would You Like to Be An Island Batik Ambassador?

Island Batik posted their application for the 2018 season of Island Batik Ambassadors just a few days ago and there are only a few days left to apply online.

Part of the application process is to complete and mail an unquilted block, which I just finished up this morning.

“Give Thanks”
 This block represents my gratefulness for this past year as an Island Batik Ambassador. Not only have I been challenged to create a project each month featuring fabrics from my ambassador fabric box, I have also learned a lot from the other ambassadors and enjoyed getting to meet several at Fall Quilt Market and Houston Quilt Festival.
It was natural for me to choose a block based a  Studio 180 Design. You can’t go wrong with Deb’s techniques and tools!  This block is from her technique sheet Birds of Paradise using the Large Square Squared Ruler.
A winning combination – fabrics from Island Batik with tools and technique from Studio 180 Design

I have truly enjoyed being an Island Batik Ambassador this past year – and it’s not over yet! I’ve got to catch up on my October project (I’m blaming it on Harvey)  and work on my December and January projects. I can hardly wait to share these creations with you  showcasing fabulous fabric lines from Island Batik. January will be a blog hop similar to the one we did in September.  There will be giveaways too! So if you haven’t subscribed to The Quilt Rambler blog you should do so now as to not miss out on a single thing!

It goes without saying that a lot of my projects will be made using the Studio 180 Design tools – I am so grateful to be a Certified Instructor and to be associated with such wonderful people!

I’m thinking I really like this block – I can see it in future projects!

So if you are wondering what it’s like to be an Island Batik Ambassador then check out the information and application. Fingers crossed that I will be able to be one again for 2018! Hope you will consider joining me on this journey!

This is Karen Overton, The Quilt Rambler, with a grateful heart
