Hello, there! I love social media -- photographing + sharing in an instant is such a great thing. Except that things have been a little quiet on the blog lately! So I'm on a mission to start sharing more here -- starting with the mini quilts from the Fresh Mini Quilt Club. The Fresh Mini Quilt Club, a 6 month mini quilt series, started in March & the June pattern was sent out over the weekend. Remember, you can join at any time!
April's mini quilt, Electrify, is a play on the traditional flying geese block. Each block is made up of four flying geese + a two fabric color palette, which makes for an interesting overall mini quilt design! Playing around with fabric placement can quickly + easily change the look of a quilt. I used Art Gallery Pure Elements solids in Coral Reef, Snow, & Ash for the quilt top. You can find them at Pink Castle Fabrics & Fat Quarter Shop.
Straight-line quilting is my favorite -- there's something so therapeutic about it! I quilted lines about 1/8" apart using my BERNINA walking foot + Aurifil thread (color 2021). This match-stick quilting results in some fabulous quilted texture -- and it's relatively simple! Check out my post on Straight-line Quilting for tips + tricks.
The binding + backing fabric is from Vanessa Christenson's Simply Color Line from Moda Fabrics. This basic blender print makes great bindings & comes in several great colors. You can find Simply Color at Pink Castle Fabrics & Fat Quarter Shop.
The Electrify Mini Quilt measures 24" x 24".
Tomorrow I'll be back with another variation with the same block & different fabric placement. Talk then!
