2018 Island Batik Ambassador Box Number Two!

Friday was a fun day, I received my second Island Batik Ambassador Box for the year!  Like Christmas in July :)  The fabrics and notions you see were provided by Island Batik, Aurifil Thread and Hobb's Batting.

Here is the video I made when I opened my box - you'll get a sneak peak of my August project as well:




I love all the new fabrics!  I can't wait to start planning my projects, I have so many ideas, but I'll need to check out what our monthly themes are so I can narrow down what I want to make.  Before I put all of this into my cupboard, I decided I needed to pull out what I have left from the first box to see how I did on my quest to see if I could use all of that fabric up over the year.

Here is a picture of the items I received in the first box:
And here is a picture of what I have left from all this:

Not bad!  I also used quite a bit of my stash from previous years.  Here are the quilts and projects I have made so far from the first box:
Plus I have two that are in progress for July and August.  I was happy that I have been able to keep up pretty well so far with the abundance of fabric that has been provided by the generous folks at Island Batik, Aurifil Thread and Hobb's batting!

In order to make some room for the new fabric, I've decided to have a giveaway!  Leave me a comment telling me what color is your favorite and I will pull a priority mail bubble envelope full of goodies for you.  Some of it will be smaller scraps, with some pieces up to 1/2 a yard.  I'll also throw in a stash builder roll for good measure!  There are also a couple more options for getting an additional chance in the drawing as well,but you do have to leave a comment on my blog.  I'll do my drawing on Tuesday, so make sure you enter right away!  This giveaway is limited to US entries only - if you are international, make sure you keep an eye out for my giveaway in August, I will have something special for you then.

Thanks, and have an awesome day!  Good luck!

What a fun giveaway Pam. I would love to have yellows and goldish. As a quilting friend of mine says, "every quilt needs a little yellow." Can you remember when you said that?

I do believe one of my favorite quilt colors is turquoise right now. It seems to go into everything I am making! But I am tending to move away from it in my purchases so I can change things up some! Maybe more Reds!!!! Christmas IS only 6 months away!
