It's Mini Madness time, and this year there is a twist.
We have to use either paper piecing or
English paper piecing for our projects!
I for one, have never played with English paper piecing.
It took me enough years to make friends with paper piecing, as it is.
Yes, there was lots of ripping and unkind words uttered, when I started.
I still have one project in a bag with the book and all the fabrics,
buried deep in my quilt room somewhere.
It's never going to see the light of day again. I promise that!
Then I stumbled on a really great instructor, who managed to do the impossible...
she made me LOVE paper piecing.
The best way I can explain it to anyone, is once you can figure out thinking upside down and backwards, it's a snap!
Anyway, I was really stumped for a project this time...
Then "Whole Circle Studio" shared this adorable pattern,
"Sew Many Colors"
and I knew exactly what I was going to do.
Pairing up these wonderful "Island Batiks" with "Aurifil" thread,
makes for once fun project! The greatest thing is, with so many
colors, you can find the perfect match for anything your sewing.
If your a quilter, I'm sure you have seen these iconic
"Auriful" thread spools a time or two.
Check out their big quilt with these spools...
270 colors of delicious!
Yep, its enough to make me drool!
Thanks "Aurifil" Thread and "Island Batik".
Til next time...
Keep on Stitchin'
