Unboxing Island Batik – January 2021

I was thrilled to get the notification that I was selected as a 2021 Island Batik Ambassador. My boxes showed up on Christmas Eve – what a great gift!  In this unboxing video, I preview all the goodies from Island Batik, Hobbs batting, Aurifil thread, Schmetz needles and Accuquilt.

Quilting Goodies for 2021

Island Batik gives all the ambassadors a fantastic selection of fabrics to work with for the monthly challenges. I was supplied with the following basic fabrics… meaning they are part of the Foundations and Blenders collections which are always available:

Solids in black, grey and white, a lovely neutral called Rice, an assortment of blues and coordinates

Island Batik partners with other companies to support the Ambassadors. We received needles from Schmetz, thread from Aurifil, and batting from Hobbs. Talk about generous – these supplies will be put to good use this year.

  1. I’m too early for the video, so I’ll have to pop back by later. It was still fun to see the photos of what you received. Mystery is gorgeous. I made a catalog quilt with that fabric line and absolutely fell in love. I can’t wait to see what you create. Have a fabulous day!
