An Island Batik Ambassador Adventure
The March IBA assignment was Mini Madness – a paper piecing project that finished no larger than 24 inches. We could choose English paper piecing or regular paper piecing. I knew I couldn’t handle another hand work project so I chose regular paper piecing.
I wanted something light and spring-like. Choosing from the treasure chest of Island Batiks has been really fun. This mini has a total of 10 different Island Batiks!
The star center was fun to piece. After staring at the pieced star for several days, I knew it needed more than a plain border. Several sketches later, I chose to do a paper pieced border. Boy! This was time consuming! It was worth it – I think it really compliments the center.
A fun batik outer border and time to quilt. One big spiral and I now have a fun, pretty and spring-like table topper for my dining room table.
Try your own mini-madness – it’s very satisfying to do a smaller project and complete it in just a couple of days! Be sure to check out the other Island Batik Ambassador posts to see their creations!
