Island Batik Ambassador January 2024 Unboxing!

Hello!  It's January again, and I'm happy to announce that I'm continuing as an Island Batik Ambassador.  This is my seventh year in the program.  I'm excited to bring you a year's worth of quilting inspiration, new ideas, new product reviews, giveaways, and of course, Curlicue Creations quilt patterns and Island Batik fabric ~ a winning combination.  Please watch my video to see what I received in my first shipment this year.  Scroll down for photos and to sign up for my newsletter so you don't miss a thing!

Disclaimer:  The items shown in this post were given to me by Island Batik and Industry Partners.
Romance Garden and coordinating light and dark fabric.  This collection was designed by Kathy Engle for Sherry Shish (Powered by Quilting).  I will be using these gorgeous greens, purples, and pinks to make my first Island Batik Ambassador project this year, a Log Cabin quilt.  This will be revealed during the February blog hop.  Fabrics will be coming to your local quilt shop soon!  Keep an eye out for them!

Dots and Doodles 2-1/2" strip pack and coordinating light and dark fabrics.

Glorious Greens 10" square precuts.  These fabrics are from the Island Batik's gradations.  They are available year round.

Ravishing Red 2-1/2" strip pack.  This is another gradation collection, always available.

Foundations 1/2 yard cuts.

Three packs of Stash Builders.  Each package contains 2.8 yards of fabric.  Each roll has four different fabrics, 5" x W.O.F.
