I mentioned in early August in my Plaid Mini Mini Quilt post that I had a few Patreon reward mini mini quilt rewards to make. Thankfully the second patron had a bit of extra patience and we were finally able to connect at the end of the month, when I discovered their favorite colors are purple and yellow.
When I evaluated the fabrics in my yellow and purple stash, I was immediately drawn to the idea of having the colors fade and blend from one to the other. I just needed to add in a bit of pink and magenta to bridge the gap.
I started with yellow and worked my way out in a wonky, improvisational style. I thought about and edited my fabric selections as the piecing grew. In fact, the piecing grew a bit larger than a typical mini mini quilt to a bit larger than 9″ square.
I loved how the piecing came together so much that I opted to cut the piece in half to create a double sided mini mini quilt. The only differentiation on the back is my woven label!
The colors are so vibrant and I love the way the mini mini quilt glows. The outer solid is Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton Regal.
I used a variety of 50wt Aurifil for the quilting: 4648 (Desert Dawn) over the yellows, 2535 (Magenta) over the magenta, and 4225 (Eggplant) over the purple.
The Sunset Mini Mini quilt finishes at 3.75″ by 9.25″. I hope my patron thinks it is as beautiful as I do!
