Though gender reveal parties are a huge trend right now, some couples choose not to know what they are having before birth. While that’s an exciting surprise to look forward to, it can be pretty difficult to make a themed quilt ahead of the little one’s arrival. Or maybe you would rather stick to neutral designs for the nursery. Whatever the reason, a gender-neutral quilt can be the practical choice for a quilter who’s ready to welcome a new loved one into the world.
In February, we surprised the 2019 Island Batik Ambassadors with a Ready. Set. GO! Ultimate Fabric Cutting System and boy, were they excited. We loved getting the chance to watch them unbox their goodies from great companies, including our own. Now, we get to see the amazing things they’re creating with all those treats on their blogs and in social posts.
Each year, Island Batik chooses a team of talented quilters and designers to act as their ambassadors. To kick off the annual program, Island Batik Ambassadors are sent a box filled with goodies to help them create monthly projects. For 2019, we decided to join in on the fun and collaborated with Island Batik to help these artists build truly awesome work.
Hello everyone! I'm Diana Ray, the quilter and writer at Ray's Sew Crafty. I'm back to show you a quick tutorial on making scrappy Christmas placemats and coasters using just two dies! I'll be using the Go! Ohio Star (#55174) die for my 17"x 12"placemats and the Go! Kite (#55254) for my 6"X 6"coasters. They are both BOB dies, a "Block on Board", which means that all of the pieces for this block are on one board for quick cutting! I love that!
