Needles, Paper, Scissors for Island Batik
The October project for Island Batik Ambassadors is to use any paper piecing technique to create any size quilt. Our fall has been so rainy, an umbrella was in order!
Because I'm working with so many colors and pieces, I put a dash of color on each pattern piece so everything will flow together smoothly. Each paper piece is perforated by stitching to provide accurate, even fold lines before adding each fabric in order.
What do they say about the best laid plans? Despite labeling each paper piece with color to prevent errors...the boots and legs needed a re-do! OOPS! On a happier note...at least I caught it when it could be easily fixed!
Ready for some borders before quilting.
While auditioning border fabric, that green umbrella section keeps calling out, "are you sure I'm the right one for this spot?" NOPE! It's not! It would have been great to make that decision without needing to un-sew but better than after it is quilted! The bright green is the new one.
