Two Modern Barn Mini Quilts | #Finishit2019 Number Two & Three


Do you ever made the same quilt twice? I'm usually a "one quilt & done quilt" kind of gal - in fact, before one project is complete, I'm already thinking about what's coming up next. That all changed over the Holidays when I was commissioned to make two identical Modern Barn Mini Quilts - finish number two & three for 2019.

String Heart Block | A Tutorial Adaptation


Cluck Cluck Sew's Heart Block is a quilty classic & perfect for Valentine's Day. This year I chose to add a scrappy string twist to her traditional heart block and I'm loving every bit of it - especially for using up those fabric scraps!

#BUSTYOURSTASH2019


Do you have a goal of busting through your fabric stash in 2019? 
The #BUSTYOURSTASH2019 tracker is perfect for tracking yardage used along side your #FINISHIT2019 progress. So far this year I've finished 3 projects and have used 7 yards of fabric from my fabric stash. Coloring in those triangles is so satisfying!

Grab your FREE copy of the #BUSTYOURSTASH2019 Tracker right here. 

How do I use the #BUSTYOURSTASH2019 Tracker?

1 - Download your FREE copy right here.
2 - Print it! Choose between the rainbow colored version or print in B&W and choose your own colors.
3 - Start tracking! For my tracker each triangle = 1 yard of fabric. You choose - fat quarters, yards, etc. It's up to you!

A Ridgeside Mini | #Finishit2019 Number One

How are you coming along with your #FINISHIT2019 list? I just love seeing your lists & progress on social media using the hashtag. Please keep those coming! If you haven't grabbed your #FINISHIT2019 Free PDF Printable yet click right here. 

I've listed several (admittedly, not all) of my unfinished projects on my #FINISHIT2019 list & can already tell it's helping me stay motivated. Having everything visually organized is how I work best. Which means I could quickly see my first four projects just needed the binding hand sewn down - yay, quick finishes! 


First up, this black & aqua Ridgeside Mini Quilt - my official first finish of 2019. The mini quilt's finished size is 18" x 18" and it's made entirely from leftover fabric scraps - double bonus! Typically, I would have quilted this simple cross-hatch quilting design using my domestic sewing machine and walking foot, but I wanted to try something new on my BERNINA Longarm. It worked & it was fast! Twelve minutes fast. Can you believe it?
