Island Batik Playful Paper Piecing

The ambassadors were to make a "playful paper pieced" items for May's challenge. 
My challenge is called Palmiers.

I used EQ7 to design a rectangular block which appears to spiral. I printed two paper piecing patterns spiraling in one direction, and reversed two more patterns to spiral in the other direction. In this manner, they would meet and touch along the left and right sides of the project. 

They remind me of palmier cookies or appetizers, thus the name Palmiers.

Thank you, Martha Stewart
and Pepperidge Farms.

This was a fun project and I know I will make another one with some seasonal themed fabrics. 

Have you ever seen or made a project based on some food?
Did the food inspire you?
Was it the colors or the shapes that brought that thought of food to mind?

On June 3, I will be posting my block for 
Be sure to visit Seams To Be Sew on June 1. 
That is the day the Blog Hop begins. 
There are a number of great giveaways at each of 
the designers' blogs/websites. 

"Enjoy a moment of stitching each day."
