Fresh Mini Quilt Club | Stix

December's FMQC mini quilt, Stix, has been finished for quite some time, -- some of you may have seen it on Instagram & Facebook -- I just haven't shared it here on the blog. Measuring at 22 1/2" x 22 1/2" it's the perfect size for a table topper or wall hanging, but I think it would make a great throw pillow, too! My version uses nine fabrics & a background fabric -- all Robert Kaufman Kona Solids. 

I chose to accent the simple overall design with some serious texture! Using my BERNINA Walking Foot I quilted straight-lines 1/2" apart to create this cross-hatch design. I'm really pleased with how it turned out! Like usual, I used my favorite cotton thread, Aurifil (50 wt., color 2024). Have you given Aurifil thread a try?

  5. Megan, You are amazing! I have never seen quilts look like amazing graphic design! The way you photograph them and straight line quilt them, chose your colors. You are an amazing designer. I adore your work. Thank you thank you for doing the blog hop with me ! Much love Frances
