In July, one of my Patreon’s unlocked a mini mini quilt reward. I like to check in with the individual to see if they have any specific requests or preferences, and in this case I was given free reign to do what ever spoke to me. I turned to my husband for a bit of advice, and he said, “transparency”. I mulled it over for a bit and came up with this little mini mini quilt:
Using the Alison Glass charm squares that I still have on hand from the swaps late last year, I went for a color progression transparency / overlapping effect.
I am especially pleased with how the binding lines up with the color progression, too!
In my continuing desire to “try it all”, I used 28wt Aurifil thread in 2600 (Dove) to quilt this little mini mini quilt. I put the 28wt thread on top and in the bobbin and did not adjust any tension settings. I did both straight line and some free motion quilting with the thread – including overlapping the thread with the pebbles – and once again I am super pleased with the results!
In fact, I might just love the back of this mini mini quilt as much as the front! The backing fabric itself was from a gifted fat quarter, so I’m not exactly sure what the print is, but I think the photographs give you the correct impression that the print has a nice silvery glitter / shimmer to it.
When I was working on this mini mini quilt, I was reminded of how fun and satisfying these small finishes can be. This mini mini quilt finished at 4.75-inches square. Do you have any suggestions for fun, fast, and satisfying finishes like this mini mini quilt?
Linking up with Finish It Friday.
