Fresh Mini Quilt Club | March 2013

IMG_1014

Hello, everyone -- Happy March!

Today is the first day of the Fresh Mini Quilt Club and I'm thrilled that so many of you have already joined. These next 6 months are going to be full of inspiration + mini quilts! For those of you signed up, the first full color PDF pattern was sent out this morning -- check your inbox. Haven't signed up yet? It's not too late! I'll be extending the discounted price through the weekend -- yay! More details about the FMQC can be found here & remember you can sign up at anytime.

IMG_0960This first Starburst Mini Quilt was made using Art Gallery Fabrics Pure Elements. If you haven't worked with Art Gallery Fabrics yet, I highly recommend you do! The solids used are: Cherry Lipgloss, Lemonade, Cozumel Blue, Ash, and Snow. You can find them at Pink Castle Fabrics and Fat Quarter Shop

I quilted the mini quilt using my favorite Aurifil thread (50 wt. 2021) in straight-lines 1/2" apart. The crisp colors, design, & quilting really work well together.

The Starburst Mini Quilt design works really well with print fabrics too! For the second mini quilt I used Constellations by Lizzie House -- those stars!

Using my walking foot I quilted straight lines, this time radiating from the center of the mini quilt. I played around with the spacing between the lines and am really happy with the results. It definitely adds a whole new dimension to the finished mini quilt. 

Have a great weekend!
xo, Megan
