I have a really fun quilt finish to share today!
Back in January 2019, I saved a blog post by Sew Jess Handmade who made a "Love" mini quilt. She didn't provide a pattern or anything, but the math was pretty simple to figure out.
I was scrolling through my blog saves between Christmas and New Year's Day and decided to add this to my to do list. I thought it would make a really fun Valentine's Day wall hanging for my "home office" (the corner of the dining room where my desk is set-up).
I used some red scraps and Kona White for the background. And the backing is a really fun print I found in my stash.
For the quilting, I was inspired by Debbie from a Quilter's Table and stitched some "Fancy Straight Lines" from the book WALK by Jacquie Gering. The straight lines are Aurifil #2600 (Dove) and the zig zags are Aurifil # 2230 (red) - both in 50 wt.
I love my "Love" mini quilt! LOL And making a small quilt was so much fun. I really liked trying a new quilting design.

What a fun mini; I hope it's already hanging in your office space. I really like that you used it to explore a new quilting technique, and the touch of red for the fancy lines is fantastic.ReplyDelete
