Island Batik Beat the Heat Blog Hop

The Island Batik Beat the Heat Blog Hop starts Monday and you just can’t miss it! This month long celebration of Island Batiks features tons of giveaways, gorgeous batiks, and beautiful quilts. Be sure to visit all the Ambassadors who are participating!

This hop features the Spring 2019 batik collection that are appearing in stores now. Click here to use the Store Locator to find a store near you that carries Island Batik.

Only half of the Ambassadors are participating in the blog hop this time. Me, along with the other half of the Ambassadors team will participate in a blog hop in November that celebrates the Summer 2019 collections. That means I’ve got a different goal this month—to design and make a star quilt for our Star Light Star Bright August challenge. Meanwhile I’ll be supporting the hop with regular updates about the giveaways and postings about the quilt patterns I designed for the Spring 2019 collection. Be sure to follow me so you don’t miss a thing! You’ll find ways to follow at the top of my sidebar.

Now back to the Beat the Heat Blog Hop.

To start things off, Island Batik is giving away a precut bundle of Jackie Kunkel’s Electric Desert collection! Use the Rafflecopter below to enter. The giveaway ends August 9th at 11:59 PM EST. The winner will be announced August 12th.

Here is the blog hop schedule. Each day, a different Island Batik Spring 2019 collection is being featured. So be sure to visit the participating Ambassador’s blogs every day of the hop to see their gorgeous quilts and to enter their giveaways!
