Welcome to our Ambassador blog hop featuring projects from Wendy Sheppard‘s newest book, Creative New Quilts & Projects from Precuts or Stash! During the hop, our Ambassadors will be featuring one of the fabulously fun projects from the book using Island Batik fabrics.
Let’s kick things off with a note from the author!
First of all, a huge shout out to Island Batik and the IB Ambassadors for putting a batik-spin to the projects in my Creative New Quilts & Projects. I am most thrilled.
In my book Creative New Quilts & Projects using Precuts or Stash, I have sought to design quilts that break out of the usual precuts look. Through the book projects, I hope to bring fun, interesting, and yet easily accomplished design elements to projects made with precuts that are store bought or self-prepared. The projects also cover a range of sizes, from home dec pillows to regular throw quilts and even a bed quilt. The projects are not fabric specific, making them fun for quilters to personalize their own projects using the fabrics they choose. Remember to enjoy the process!
Happy Quilting Everyone!
Quiltingly yours, Wendy
