December Patron Mini Mini Quilt

What better way to wrap up the year than with a fun finish? Today I'm happy to get to share my latest Patron mini mini quilt reward. My patron loved an earlier Om mini mini quilt that I made in blue. When they requested green, I thought it was certainly fitting for a make at this time of year. To make...

Pulsar {December MDL Finish}

Today I'm pleased to share how my December MDL Challenge and Aurifil Artisan Holiday Project quilt came together. Pulsar finished at 37 1/2 inches square. I used the four-at-a-time flying geese method to make all the geese units. The most time consuming part of putting the quilt top together was deciding how I wanted to set the corner units. After...

Baby Wonder {Finished Quilt}

One of my favorite things to sew while traveling this summer was the Baby Wonder quilt top in Wonder Woman colors. With a small break in between projects at the end of November, I eagerly pulled out the quilt top and finished it. Now that the quilt has been gifted/received, I can share about how it came together. A recent...

November Patron Mini Mini Quilts

I had 5 Patrons unlock the mini mini quilt reward in November. I typically aim to make mini mini quilts in the 4" square size range, but they all vary a little bit. Over Thanksgiving, we had over 9 inches of snow at my house, which made a soft photo background for these fun tiny quilts. I ask each patron...

Push-Pull {Completed Quilt}

I was able to finish hand stitching the binding on a lap sized version of Push-Pull the day after Thanksgiving, and I am so smitten with how it all came together! I used Northcott ColorWorks Premium Solids in Iris, Heather, and Lilac Mist. The backing is Iris and the binding is Heather. After quilting and binding, it finished at 65"...

Scoop {November MDL Challenge}

I wasn't surprised to realize that I did not have enough fabric to make my initial November MDL Design Idea that I shared early last week. I didn't need to change much, and I have to admit that I really liked how the design evolved with just those few changes. After getting the design modified for the fabric I had...

Stone Sheep Mini Quilt: Complete!

It is my great pleasure to share with you the completed Stone Sheep Mini quilt today! I put a lot of thought and time into alternate ways of finishing this mini quilt: should I stretch it across a canvas or frame it or put it in a shadow box? After exploring all my options, I opted for a black binding...

River Antoine Mini Quilt Finish

I decided to tackle basting the River Antoine Mini Quilt, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that I had enough floor space to baste it inside Wabi-Sabi Overland. The floor space is tight, as you can see. Our pull-out chest refrigerator is to the far left in the image, our kitchen is at the top of the image with...

Sparkler {Summer Sampler 2019}

I'm pretty sure no one is surprised about the skill that I discuss in this week's Summer Sampler 2019 block that I designed: transparency. I have focused a lot in the past on evaluating fabric in a monochromatic sense. But what if you want to move around the color wheel? Before I talk about moving around the color wheel, let's...

Design Group Challenge: Crown Mini Quilt

One of the reasons I was motivated to finish the Butterfly Inspiration Mini Quilt a few weeks ago was that it was time for me to start working on the next design group challenge. In general, I like to finish one project before moving on to another (although quilt alongs and other long term projects definitely interrupt that general...

This week I was able to put the finishing touches on the mini quilt, and I really love how it finished. For the quilting, I started by drawing a long, continuous...
