Lone Star Blog Hop

Today starts the Lone Star blog hop featuring Island Batik's newest fabric collections.  Each Island Batik was sent one of the complete collections and tasked with making a Lone Star quilt.

I was sent the Chickadee, designed by Kathy Engle as a signature collection for The Whimsical Workshop.  Chickadee looks like a child's crayon box! It was a lot of fun to work with and I can't wait to show you what I made!  I'm early on this hop, so you'll only have to wait until Wednesday. 


Here is the full schedule, which takes us through almost the entire month of December.  Be sure to check out everyone for a whole lot of Lone Star inspiration! And Island Batik does a new giveaway every Friday during the hop, so be sure to visit them weekly! Some ambassadors will also do their own bonus giveaways, so don't miss anyone!

  1. Beautiful quilt Emily! All the colors seem to pop in your quilt. Thank you for the chance at your giveaway. I like to make scrappy sampler blocks so I don't really have a quilt on my list to make.
