Batik Fabric Giveaway


*Giveaway is now closed*
Sew Sisters Quilt Shop_Giveaway
Recently I was contacted by Sew Sisters to see if I would be interested in hosting a sponsored giveaway and was told the prize would be batik fabrics.   I have never done a sponsored giveaway before and this one really fits well with my blog as you know how much I love batik fabrics.  I have also shopped from Sew Sisters online shop and received wonderful service.  It was a win win situation as my readers get the chance to win some beautiful fabric and Sew Sisters gets a spotlight on my blog.
If your new to my blog I’m a longarm quilter in Northern Manitoba that is passionate about quilting, loves to dye fabric and enjoys photographing my clients quilts in the beauty of our northern landscape.  Hope you’ll take a few minutes to browse the wonderful quilts that have come through the doors of Tamarack Shack!
The picture above is of the fabrics that are up for grabs, 4 half yard cuts of green batiks.   Sew Sisters has a Batik Lover’s Club where you can receive 4 half yards of batiks every month for $25.

  171. Hi - Love your site. I am now a follower. I have never seen quilts layed out on Ice before. Cool! (in more ways than one :-) ) I never thought I liked Batiks until I made one and now I LOVE them. The fabric is so beautiful. Many different shades of the same colour. I hope I win and then I will e-mail you a picture of my completed quilt :-) :-)

  172. I have made many quilts using batiks. In fact, it is my favorite fabric.

  174. I am a follower of yours and I have made a few batik quilts. Love all the options you have with them. I have also made a quilt (your hockey one that you posted about 2 years ago). I love all your work.

  175. I have a batik quilt kit that is still waiting in the wings but I haven't made a totally batik quilt top yet. I use batiks a lot for applique though and love them for that since they don't fray as easily.

    Love your blog and check it frequently. I'm new to long arm quilting and really appreciate your photos and the names of the quilt patterns that you choose.
