I was delighted to participate in the Little Gems Blog Hop, a hop celebrating the release of talented designer Connie Kauffman‘s new book “Little Gems“, for Island Batik. Connie is such a joy to work with, and the projects in her book were very much the same!
I had the opportunity to make Cotton Candy, a sweet little paper pieced project from the book.
Here’s my remake! I used scraps from work (yes, some I literally pulled from the waste bin) and a few pieces from the new fabric line from Fourth and Sixth Designs, Full Bloom.
This is by far the smallest quilt I have ever made. It was fun, though I did have troubles matching some of those tiny points. Connie made me feel a little better when, after I told her I struggled, saying that this was one of the more difficult projects in the book. Whether it’s true or she was just being kind, I still appreciated it. 😉
Here’s a photo of the original, hanging on an adorable wire stand from Ackfeld Wire.
