Island Batik box #2

I got my 2nd box of goodies from Island Batik on Saturday!

I tried to do a LIVE video on FB but a minute into it, it got really pixelated, maybe it’s my internet connection?? so I took it down.

The box was just HUGE and HEAVY!!

And this title really intrigued me!!

I got a strip set and yardage of Lavendula- pretty lavender/purple and teal/greens!

and 2 sets of 10” stacks! one is paisley dots, I thought I got that once before, but come to think of it, it was for the magazine quilt!!

the 2nd one is called spirit rhythm, reminds me of African safari- at least the front piece does!

Then I also got tons of matching yardages, some are a yard, some half, the neutral was 5 yards!! that should last a while!!

Aurifil has 10yr anniversary so there was a little tote bag with it too and a few threads, this pack of one of each type of threads they carry, I think, at least they matched the booklet which is very educational.

And there was 3 packs of batting from Hobbs

One was a queen sized cotton batting and the other two were 60x60 wool and wool blend batting, I don’t think I’ve ever quilted with wool batting before?

I’ve rearranged my batting and things and right now everything is in a corner on the floor behind my long arm frame, I still have un-opened packs from the last box!

and the feline fine fabrics were in a surprise bundle I can’t show yet, but they are SO cute!! just wait and see Winking smile

I was talking to Connie (freemotion by the river) and found out this is our 10th box from Island Batik!!

I’m not as organized as her, but look at her 9 boxes (plus new one)

And my other friend Vicki said this box had 27yds of fabrics!

That’s a lot of quilts! yet me manage to use it all or most of it Smile


Well my mind is spinning with ideas, I want to cut into these already, well the yardage is waiting to be washed and the “surprise” bundle from the 1st box this year needs to be cut into for the island Batik Outdoors blog hop in August! so….wait and see….

wait and see…..

wait…..

and see…

ha ha (evil laugh)

THANKS ISLAND BATIK!!

They certainly are generous with their packages! I like the African print fabric collection the best. I look forward to seeing what you do with your bounty!
