News, News, and More News…

I have been meaning to post all week with the Sue and Sam patterns, but have been slowed down this week due to the detail in the patterns, so first let me apologize, I should have them ready for you tomorrow morning and will post them at that time. Please note, I will be making some changes to this block of the week, so please read tomorrow’s post.

I have news about sponsors for Quilt Qwazy Queens also, you’ll want to read the entire post to hear about that news to.. and on top of that, I’m also jump, jump, jumping for joy, as I have been selected to become and Island Batik Ambassador for the year 2017. It’s quite exciting to be amongst the other 30+ Ambassadors that they choose each year and I’m quite excited to bring you giveaways of fabric for the year and show you the fun projects I will be making. At the same time, I will also be sharing any patterns I create for my projects.Island Batik Ambassador LogoWith becoming an ambassador, I received my first of two boxes of fabric yesterday and you can just imagine that I was jumping for joy again over the wonderful fabrics they sent.
