Welcome to the Island Batik October challenge – Thread painting using Aurifil threads
Island Batik are celebrating art this month. With the fabric as our canvas and Aurifil thread is our paint. we need to create an art quilt or project using Aurifil thread and our beautiful Island Batik fabrics.
The threads I chose were mauves, purples, navy’s and blues, and having just celebrated my birthday which had a purple theme, my project was decided
My threads and fabrics…
My birthday cake had a beautiful quilt theme in purple, and I wanted to capture the theme, so I decided to make a mini quilt using paper piecing
I had so much fun, drawing with my machine and the Aurifil threads, adding a few decorative stitches into the finished piece.
I even like the reverse …
I love the idea of creating a quilted piece, as it will bring back memories of my special day for years to come.
I hope you like what I’ve done, be sure to head over to the other ambassadors pages this month, there is some really beautiful work.
