The Great Outdoors Blog Hop

The Great Outdoors Blog Hop

Aaaah the great outdoors. We’re seeing more and more research that says spending time outside is good for your mental health. It’s a lot like quilting, in that way! 😉 So, on those days when it’s just too hot to fire up the iron and sewing machine, we stay get outside and have fun walking, tending to your garden, or just basking in the glorious (hot) sun!

The great outdoors are what inspired the this hop’s theme. Throughout the month of August, our Ambassadors will be featuring Island Batik’s newest fabrics, appearing on shop shelves NOW! See something you like? Ask for it at your local quilt shop, or request it if you don’t yet see it.

Find the hop schedule below! And, what’s a hop without a great giveaway?! 😉 Find giveaway details at the end of this post. Thanks for joining us for The Great Outdoors Blog Hop!
