Fresh Mini Quilt Club | July 2013

IMG_1996Hello -- happy Monday! July's Fresh Mini Quilt Club mini quilt design, Fireworks, was sparked by my love of the traditional flying geese block. Each new color radiates from the center star, just like a firework in a night sky! 

IMG_2007The mini quilt design features 4 prints + a background fabric. Just like with the previous months' finished minis, I used Pure Elements solids from Art Gallery Fabrics. The saturated & vibrant colors of the Art Gallery solids are a favorite!

Sticking with the radiating design, I quilting a large "X" through the center of the mini quilt and continued with 1/4" straight-line quilting to the edges. This slight variation on the typical straight-line quilting technique makes for a fun + simple way to finish any quilt, large or small. I quilted the design using a 50 wt. Aurifil thread (color 2024) & my BERNINA walking foot -- those two make quite the pair! 
This black & white binding fabric is quickly becoming my favorite! It's an older Moda print (unfortunately long out of print) and the strips make for a great binding.
