Two blog hops!

May is a busy month for blog hops!  I'm in two in the coming weeks, and I'm so excited to share what I've been working on!

First is the Reflections blog hop, hosted by Jennifer of The Inquiring Quilter.  I've known Jennifer in blogland for years.  We were both part of a group for new quilt bloggers several years ago, and she & I and about 8 others kept a smaller sub-group going for years.  She was one of the quilters whose work with Island Batik inspired me to apply to be an Island Batik Ambassador!  


Jennifer has her own signature collection from Island Batik called Reflections that is absolutely gorgeous!  Seriously, check it out!  Jennifer always makes such beautiful quilts with jewel tone fabrics that I am so thrilled that those colors are in this collection.  I was so honored when she asked me to be part of the blog hop showing off her beautiful collection.  My day to post is Wednesday May 8th, so be sure to come back and see what I made.


In the meantime, check out all the bloggers creating with Reflections. Plus, Jennifer has a chance to win a fat quarter bundle on her blog, and there will be an instagram loop from May 15th - May 17th --just look for the post by @inquiringquilter.  And finally, Jennifer is doing a quilt along with her beautiful Broken Roads pattern beginning May 23rd and continuing through June 13th.  You can sign up for the quilt along here

And then, if that's not enough quilty inspiration, it's time for Island Batik to unveil their most recent batch of collections. Reflections is one of those, of course, and there are eleven others, for a total of twelve gorgeous fabric collections! Each Island Batik ambassador was sent one of the twelve collections and asked to use paper piecing to create a lap-sized quilt fit for a celebration. 


I was sent Peppermint Sprinkles, a really fun wintery collection featuring snowflakes, reindeer, pine trees, and deer. I absolutely love this collection and can't wait to show you my quilt! My day is Wednesday May 15th, so come back to see my celebration of winter naps. 😉 



Island Batik has a new giveaway starting each Friday during the hop; check out their blog for details. Many of the hosts will have giveaways on their individual posts as well; here's the complete schedule:
