This week I was able to turn my test block for the Inset Curve Star tutorial into a finished mini quilt. The mini quilt uses curve star blocks, square in a square blocks, and an inset curve star. With the test block finished as a mini quilt, I have one long term WIP that needs to be quilted, but I suspect I might be busy with a few more upcoming projects. I’m still hopeful I will have the long term WIP complete before the end of the year.
The mini quilt finishes at 24 1/4″ square after quilting and binding.
I tried yet another small quilting variation for the curve star blocks in this mini quilt; this time I quilted a second 1″ echo in the center of the star. I still think my favorite quilted option is the star burst from the center of the Inset Curve Star mini quilt I finished over the weekend, but it’s always good to test out options!
The metallic pearl bracelet print is so fun, and I get distracted by it every time I walk by. For the square in a square blocks, I quilted with a favorite linear swirl pattern.
It’s really obvious that I used matching thread colors for the front of the quilt when looking at the back. I used 50wt Aurifil 2692 (Black) and 2115 (Lemon).
The back is pieced from two different yellow solids, and I used up the last of the metallic pearl bracelet print for the binding.
I’m already smitten with my next project: using the cut leftovers from the Sky Full of Stars quilt. I look forward to sharing where that is heading with you soon!
