Paper Piecing Fun

An Island Batik Adventure

Needle, Paper, Scissors (Large)Paper Piecing – I have done quite a bit of it, enjoy it, but was not up for a big project for the Island Batik October project.  My answer? A pin cushion! The pattern: Turning Points by Hunter’s Design Studio. I chose to do the mug rug size rather than the actual pin cushion size. That was just a little too teenie for me!

A deep green was chosen for the base and picking out pretty colors for the little flying geese was fun! See them colorfully flying in a circle?!

I would sew a couple of sections, then take a break and do some handwork. I really love the end result and I am keeping it for myself! Who couldn’t use another pin cushion?!

And yes, I do already have a few.

My thanks to Island Batik for the beautiful fabrics and Aurifil thread used for putting this fun project together.
