Day 1 Little Gems Blog Hop


Welcome to Day 1 of the Little Gems Blog Hop!

I am Connie Kauffman - author of Little Gems.  This book is published by Martingale and just came out this February, so it's brand new!  I'm excited to be hosting this blog along with 8 other Island Batik Ambassadors and our three sponsors:  Island Batik, Martingale and Ackfeld Manufacturing.

The patterns in this book are all paper pieced and measure 12" x 12".  Even if you've never paper pieced before, give these little projects a try.  There is not a lot of fabric required, so these projects are great for using bits and pieces from your scrap stash.

Each day an Ambassador will be making one of the projects in the book using only Island Batik fabrics in a different colorway.  I love batiks and feel very privileged to be one of Island Batik's Ambassadors. Working with their fabrics is a real joy!

Before I show you the quilt I recreated with Island Batik fabrics for this blog hop, I want to let you know a little known secret about the book.  There is actually a 16th project!  I had too many projects to fit in the book.  If you purchase the book, this is a free online project.  It's called Cornered.  I made it with whites and reproduction prints.

I selected the quilt Serenity from the book as my project to recreate with Island Batik fabrics.
Here is the project from the book done with taupe fabrics.

I love this quilt ( I love them all- each one has something special about it).  This quilt is easy in that it only has two block patterns and you can use about any color combination you'd like.  Decide what colors you want to use and gather all your scraps together and just get started.  You don't have to worry about where each color goes, or whether it is light or dark.  It all mixes up beautifully.

To recreate this pattern with Island Batik fabrics, I picked out fall colors of greens, browns and oranges.

What do you think of this one?

  10. I really like the Serenity block and think the taupe fabrics do it's name justice. The book is one that I would love to add to my collection; and I already have a 12" block stand waiting for those pretties to go on it. The bonus block is nice also.

  14. I really have decided that mini quilts are the way to go! You can finish (yes finish) a project in a short time so my satisfaction index is HIGH!!

  46. Congratulations on your book. I'm sure you're super excited and you should be from what I've seen so far. The last quilt shown here has beautifully chosen fabrics perfect for Fall. Every time I see a quilt perfect for Fall, I kick myself and ask, WHY don't I have any Fall colored fabrics at all? I always like them, yet I don't buy those colors. I really need to change that.

  132. It might be hard to have a little quilt look bad when using Island Batiks!! :) Cornered really caught my eye but that was because of the pastels colors. There wasn't a single design that wasn't sweet - I would have a devil of a time deciding which to do first.

  177. Congratulations! I'm loving these minis - and batiks are just my all time favorite fabrics! I think I need some Serenity in my quilt room.

  184. All three are fabulous! I have a collection of thirties prints-what a great idea. The fall colours are lovely. My absolute favorite is the taupe and peach-it just make me smile.

  185. I love the Serenity quilt in the taupe colors, and the Cornered quilt. This looks like a fun book of patterns, which I would love to try.

  186. I love the Serenity quilt in the taupe colourway - I could sit and look at it for ages - a very peaceful place to rest ones eyes for a while. Your Cornered quilt is also very pretty and aptly named too.
