Summer is winding down and the kids are headed back to school. That means Fall is right around the corner (YAY)! It’s an exciting time. And even though Autumn marks the end of a year, it’s somehow full of new beginnings.
What’s your favorite back to school memory? Shopping for new school supplies? The smell of a fresh stack of books at your new desk? Making new friends, or even meeting your BFF? It’s simply a great time of year, and we’re going to celebrate it (even if it’s been a few years since a first day of school 😉 ) with a blog hop!
Throughout the hop, our Ambassadors will be featuring Island Batik’s newest fabrics, appearing on shop shelves as we speak! See something you like? Ask for it at your local quilt shop, or request it if you don’t yet see it. We have the most delicious collections to share with you, along with our favorite back to school memories.
If you haven’t joined us for a hop before, or aren’t familiar with our Ambassadors, we’re excited to introduce you to fellow quilters and bloggers who make up the team, too. This group has been stitching up a storm with our fabrics since February, and when you visit their blogs, you’ll find lots more Island Batik projects among their posts. Get ready to have some fun!
Here’s the schedule for the hop, beginning September 4th. Reference this post any time, or follow us on Facebook for links to the post (or posts) of the day throughout the hop!
