Mini Monday: Two Projects

I quilted the AAQI mini made a few Mondays ago.  

Echo quilting
Using orange Sulky thread I quilted organic lines around the three color bars using my walking foot.  

Before the binding has been hand stitched to the back

I didn't use the facing method this time as I had this leftover Kaffe binding strip which has the perfect colors to match the solids and is just the right length.  Correction:  the binding strip is  Pretty Bird by Pillow and Maxfield

The back
 Half of a fat quarter is the perfect backing size for these Alzheimer's Art Quilts.  For this quilt I used Groove by Caleb Gray Studio for Robert Kaufman.  

NYC fabric
I made another journal cover using Stitched in Color's tutorial, this time for a friend's birthday.  The fabric was picked up at our NYC girls'  trip from City Quilter.  

 The first one seemed a bit tight, and this one seems a little loose.   Maybe the next journal cover I make will be just right!

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. Oh, I love it! What a great quilt!

  2. Love your mini!! And that NYC fabric is awesome...perfect for a journal cover!!

  3. I bet the third cover will be just right! I love the fabrics for it. Wow. And your mini quilt is ice! Like how it turned out!

  4. Love the little aaqi quilt! You are very good keeping up on your pledge! I have to say I love your outdoorsy quilt pictures! I am afraid there aren't many days we could do so at this time of the year around here.

  5. Great use for the leftover binding. The mini aaqi quilt is wonderful. I also love the fabric you used for the journal cover.
