Mini Madness! A peek at this and a peek at that!
You’ll want to stop by tomorrow to see the quilt that Tasha is sitting on. I was playing in Photoshop and came up with this neat picture. I’m glad I saved it because I closed the file so I could redo it in a larger size and…..forgot how I got this look. There are so many neat things you can do in Photoshop.
I have learned that a “treat” works to get Tasha to sit!For the month of March all of the Island Batik ambassadors are supposed to make a mini paper pieced project as part of Mini Madness.
I started working on the Aurifil free pattern – Sew Many Colors after reading the post on AURIbuzz. This is all I have done so far, but Joan from MooseStash Quilting, a fellow Island Batik ambassador has already finished one so be sure and stop by her blog to see it. Whenever I do foundation paper piecing I like to use newsprint. Can you see the difference in the color of the paper? One is regular typing paper and the other is all-purpose newsprint. I buy mine from Dick Blick in a 500 sheet ream, it is very reasonable in price. (no affiliate) It is very easy to tear of your paper pieced project.
Well guess what…..I decided to make a different Mini Madness quilt…..here is just a peek at what I’m doing. I just realized this whole darn post is…peeks! My Mini Madness will have a tutorial and a couple giveaways, have you ever done foundation paper piecing and do you like it? This will up by next week.
