This month the Island Batik Ambassadors are all working on Paper Piecing projects. I happen to love paper piecing and have several books out with paper piecing patterns. The theme for the Island Batik projects was Playful Paper Piecing. I thought about the word Playful, and decided to go with a pattern from my book 24 Kids Quilt Blocks (available at: e pattern central
I decided to make the block design for flip flops. Doesn't that sound like summer fun!
I used three fabrics from the Island Batik Lavish collection. They are so colorful and fun to work with.
Here are my flip flops made into a cute little hot pad.
The flowers are silk flowers attached with a single button. It gives a cute 3-D effect.
Paper piecing is really fun - give it a try!
