I don't know about you, but I am so glad it is Friday. This has been one @*&% of a week. Seeing all the Sew and Tell Friday projects should cheer me up!
This week I made two mini quilts. I was playing around with some of my Moda Sampler pack fabrics. This one features four Verna squares inside white Jelly Roll strips. The border is Moda Bella Solid Marigold.
I was pleasantly surprised at how well this Hope Valley fabric worked for the binding and backing. I found some 1/4" masking tape that I used for my quilting lines. I really like the look of it.
This one also has four Verna squares and white jelly roll strips. This time the Moda Bella Solid is Organic Green. I wanted the block to sit off center in a non planned way.
The binding and part of the backing is Amy Butler fabric. I was really trying to use what fabric I had on hand. I really had to resist going out and purchasing Kate Spain's Verna fabric to go with the squares from the Sampler Pack.
On this mini quilt, I quilted a grid pattern of thin lines alternating with thick lines. I am really pleased with the way they turned out. However, my husband just doesn't get the concept of "mini quilt" or "wall quilt". If it isn't big enough to snuggle under, he has no use for it ;-)
I'm thinking he would change his mind if I made THIS into a mini quilt! I like the idea of a Lamborghini art quilt.
Don't forget to visit all the Sew and Tell Friday participants!
Have an amazing weekend!!!
