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?

START DATE: December 2018
FINISH DATE: January 2, 2019
YARDS BUSTED: 1 yard (1 yard total YTD)


  1. I like this mini!

    I’m doing the same thing as you and keeping track of how much yardage I’m using. I’m not shopping at all this year, so it will be heavily tipped to yardage out and not in.

  2. What an amazing mini! That binding fabric just perfectly shows it off, do you remember what it is? Thank you for sharing, inspired!
