On January 4th, I introduced the concept of supporting Quilting Jetgirl through Patreon. I am so grateful for my Patrons: those who have pledged their support. The beginning of April marked the third month of this system, and it unlocked one of the rewards for several patrons. So I spent the beginning of this week making custom mini mini quilts to send to my patrons as a token of my gratitude and thanks.
Each mini mini quilt was a fun design challenge, and I was definitely given a lot of room to play and explore with my favorite color (blue!).
I experimented with quilting using 12wt Aurifil thread on several of these mini mini quilts. I found that Olive (my domestic / Bernina 820) will straight line stitch with 12wt with a larger needle (I used a 100|14), but she was not going to free motion quilt with the thicker thread. In all cases I used 50wt Aurifil in the bobbin.
7 little quilts… and they don’t even fill up my 12″ x 18″ cutting mat!
So what’s the big deal about my Patrons? Well, because of their support I recently upgraded my blog and migrated to be self-hosted through WordPress.org. And my first batch of test printed paper patterns will be delivered next week. Those were both big goals for me this year, which I have already achieved before 1/3rd of the year is over.
It is with deep thanks and gratitude that I created these mini mini quilts, and I am excited to mail them off to their new homes.
