Single Burst Mini

Remember my Cross Check Mini from a few weeks ago? Well, when I finished it, I decided to pull more blue fabrics and make the other design from the pattern: Single Burst Mini.


I absolutely loved making this mini! Yvonne's designs and patterns are just so striking, so graphic and her instructions are fabulous!

I used two of the same fabrics that I stitched the Cross Check Mini with and then pulled a fabulous Cotton & Steel print for the background, border and binding.


Can't you just imagine this as a huge block for a bed quilt?

I went with wavy lines stitched with the walking foot for the quilting. It's super easy and quick, but gives the quilt a really fun texture - it's become my favourite way to quilt a quilt.


Stats:
  • Pattern: Single Burst Mini by Yvonne at Quilting Jetgirl
  • Size: 18.5" x 24" 
  • Fabrics: Kona Algeria, scraps from backing fabrics I had on hand and Cotton & Steel basic
  • Thread: Pieced and quilted with Aurifil #2600 (Dove) in 50 wt

I will be showing off this finish at Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday and at What a Hoot! who is hosting TGIFF this week.

  1. It is fantastic, Izzy! Do you have plans for what you will do with it? And I am definitely partial, but I agree that Sunburst (the bigger, bed sized version) is pretty spectacular. ;)

  2. I love the background fabric you used for this! Minis are so awesome with their speed of execution - so much faster than big quilts. Very fun share at TGIFF :)
