Mini Madness book cover

As an Island Batik Ambassador we have lots of fun every month. The challenge this month was paper piecing. I work with an EPP project, as I love hexagon quilting. Tomorrow you can find that project on my blog. But I was tempted to make a paper pieced tulip block, and today I made it into a sweet book cover.

Som ambassadør for Island Batik får vi utfordringer hver måned. Denne måneden skal vi sy papirsøm. Ettersom jeg elsker å sy sekskanter, startet jeg et slikt prosjekt straks jeg fikk disse flotte stoffene. Dette arbeidet er enda ikke ferdig, men jeg håper å få det ferdig og på bloggen i morgen. Måtte jo også prøve litt annen papirsøm, og falt for denne tulipanblokken. Det ble til et nydelig boktrekk.

I picked these beautiful Island Batik fabrics for this project. I didn't know that batiks came in such fantastic colours before.

Aurifil Thread is a perfect match for these fabrics, and you'll find it in whatever colour you may need.
