Rayon Fabric


That’s the name of this bundle of 1/2 yard cuts. Designed by Claudia Pfeil. And there are 2 yards of “Scrolling Grape” and 2 yards of “Nautilus Floral-Baja.” I’m in LOVE with these fabrics … I’ll be sharing what I make with them during our blog hop in February.


The wrapped package contains fabric for a blog hop in May. Look at the beautiful coordinating fabrics! There are 2 yards of “Wheat-Dusk” and 2 yards of “Pinecone-Dark Teal.” Mmmm … wonder what I’ll be making with these?


6 yards of “Custard.” This is a wonderful neutral and goes with almost everything!

Schmetz Needles

Awesome needles!!! What else can I say? Chrome needles in 3 different sizes: Microtex 70/10, Microtex 80/12 and Quilting 90/14. As well, they sent the colour coding charts, a luggage tag (for when we can travel again!), a cleaning cloth, a pocket guide and a notepad! (I think I’m spoiled!) Schmetz


These are wonderful!!! A good variety of fabrics! Each roll contains four 5″ Width of Fabric strips!


Pre-cut #1

This is Harvest Blue! Designed by Kathy Engle. Lovely yellow and Blue 2.5″ strips (40 pieces, 20 fabric designs) along with 2 yards of “Ogee Petal-Sunshine” (from the Blender’s collection) and 2 yards of “Universe” from the Basic’s collection. (Blenders and Basics are available all the time.)

Pre-cut #2

Starry Night!!! Oh be still my beating heart!!! Look at those blues!!! This pre-cut is 10″ squares, 42 pieces and 20 fabric designs, designed by Kathy Engle. To coordinate with this stack of fabric, I have 2 yards of “Ravine” and the light blue (on the right) has the elegant name of BE34-EI.

    • Hi Kate! This is only what is to be used in the first 6 months!!! We get another box in July. About the Island Batik ambassador program: The applications are in November (I’ll be announcing it when the time comes). Once you are chosen, you are expected to use the fabrics and supplies to make monthly projects with the theme set by Island Batik. Then you are expected to blog and use social media to promote the fabric and products. It’s a wonderful program!

    • Hi Ioleen! Sorry that you have to wait to see what is being made with all these beautiful fabrics! However, rest assured that at least 2 are being worked on at the present time! 🙂
