I am excited to take part in the Little Gems Blog Hop featuring Connie Kauffman’s new book called Little Gems: 15 Paper Pieced Miniature Quilts which was published by Martingale. Connie is a fellow Island Batik Ambassador and everyone participating is using Island Batik fabrics for their projects.
My project is called Playing with Plaids and is a super easy paper piecing project. I also used a Ackfeld Table Top Fabric Holder to display my miniature.
Here is the same miniature quilt that is in Connie’s book made with plaids.
What I used was Full Bloom by Island Batik.
Here is the piece before adding the buttons, they really change the look of the little wall hanging don’t you think?
Connie’s book Little Gems contains 15 beautiful paper-pieced miniatures that are each 12 inch by 12 inch and easy to follow directions. If you have never paper-pieced before this is a book you will learn from and enjoy. Here are just a few of the designs you will find in the book and every day through April 18th you will see how these designs have been redone with batiks.
Each blog taking part will be giving away a ebook of Little Gems. Island Batik will be giving away a fabric bundle and Ackfeld will be giving away a frame! 11 days of giveaways!
