I couldn’t let the blocks I made to create the Combinatorics Introductory Tutorial that I shared last month go to waste. They quickly sewed into a mini quilt top and over the weekend I was able to get it quilted and bound.
I couldn’t help myself and hung the new mini quilt next to the original Combinatorics mini quilt that I created in the summer of 2017 when I first came up with and explored the idea.
This time I chose to finish the mini quilt with contrasting binding. I also used a walking foot to do the quilting and followed the same general quilting plan as the original mini quilt but with a little less dense quilting.
Beyond using a contrasting binding, I also quilted in contrasting 50wt Aurifil thread on my domestic machine (a Juki TL-2200QVP Mini) using my walking foot. In the off-white areas I used 50wt Aurifil 2840 (Loden Green) and in the green areas I used 50wt Aurifil 2000 (Light Sand).
The mini quilt is made using Studio e Fabrics Modern Batiks. It was nice to be inside over a wet and cold weekend finishing up this mini quilt. There are only a few more weeks in the year to try and sneak in another finish; is there anything you hope to get completed?
Linking up with Amanda’s final Finish it Friday. Thank you Amanda, for everything over the years and best wishes for the next chapter!

Your mini is adorable in my fav colour green.
It’s a nice visual statement to so the minis hung around the corner from each other. Congrats on another beautiful finish.
So striking Yvonne. You have such a clean, bold style that I admire so much! Take care, Mary.
Both quilts are lovely. I need to make one of my own. 🙂
Striking! I love it!
I think the green quilt is a different take from the black and white and really love the quilting and display. Oh, I need to stretch the month out for another couple of weeks. Pajama sewing for grandsons, a trip to Morro Bay and still more sewing to do is making this a very busy month. I’m watching the snow accumulate her in northern Nevada and if Christmas was today, it would be very white!!
I love the subtle little changes you made between the two mini quilts. Congrats on your finish!
these look great! the quilting is perfect.
Looking great. I’m definitely going to give this a try. I have lots that I should finish, but the reality is that I won’t. LOL
The green combinatrics is terrific – love the quilting and the binding too. The Combinatrics quilts look perfect on that adjoining wall, where you can see them both AND get some cool optics with the corners.
Very fun! I love how you hung the mini ‘with’ your other!
