I couldn't believe that my last finish post was back on April 24!!! What the heck have I been doing for the last 2 months?!
Anyhow - I do have a finish to share today! Yay!
Late last night, I put the last stitches on the binding of my Nested Churn Dash mini quilt.
First, let me apologize for the bad photography... It's nasty grey and rainy here today so had to take pictures in my basement.
I mentioned the Nested Churn Dash QAL a couple of time already, but just in case, here are the details:
- Pattern designed by Quilt Jane.
- You can purchase the pattern for this 24" block here (it's a real bargain at $2!)
- You can see everyone's Nested Churn Dash on Instagram by using #nestedchurndash.
There are some stunning examples of this block used in big quilts. I'm thinking I might have to make one too.
For my mini, I chose to use scraps of the Vintage Modern collection by Bonnie and Camille with some Kona Snow as the background.
The binding is a Fig Tree & Co print from the Avalon collection.
For the quilting, I decided to try a few different designs. In the inner rounds, I used circles and pepples on the printed fabric.
I really wasn't crazy about the circles, so I went with something a little bit different in the outer round: some swirls.
I much prefer those!
On the background fabric, I quilted some dense back and forth lines and I am in love with the texture!
It feels really good to finally have something finished to share with you. My Nested Churn Dash mini is now proudly displayed on the wall of my sewing room with my other mini quilts.
Have a fabulous weekend!
