Mini Quilt: March 2018

I recently finished this mini quilt to submit to the Curated Quilts mini quilt challenge, which provided a specific set of colors and the theme of “triangle”. Lately, I’ve enjoyed participating in challenges, swaps, and calls for submissions because it adds a specific design constraint for me to work within and apply my own style to.

This mini quilt is an original pattern, created in Photoshop, using solids from my local quilt shop (Free Spirit, I think?), and scraps of Warm & Batting from my larger quilts. It is approximately 15″x15″. It was machine pieced and machine quilted with a walking foot using Aurifil thread.

About to cut into my next quilting project. Wish me luck! And sanity! #quilt #quilts #quiltplanning #quilting #sewing #sew #diy #cloud9fabrics #cirrussolids #stephskardalquiltsmarch2016 ...

Blood, sweat, and tears going into this one, heavy on the blood side when I sliced my index finger down the side with a rotary cutter. That was a minor setback. At least I didn't get any blood on the fabric as I yelled F*** really loud. #quilt #quilting #paperpiecing #cloud9fabrics #konacotton #shotcotton #sewing #sew #fail #stephskardalquiltsmarch2016 ...

Summonsing the skills of @kathleenbaden for some squishing and squanching. 4 more seams to finish the quilt top. #quilt #quilting #paperpiecing #modernquilting #modernquilt #cloud9fabrics #cirrussolids #makersgunnamake #creativelifehappylife #stephskardalquiltsmarch2016 ...

Stitching one ditch at a time, and then a few more later to add some flare. There's anxiety in seeing how this is coming together, not sure if my design decisions worked or not. #quilt #quilttop #machinequilting #paperpiecing #quilting #aurifil #aurifilthread #cirrussolids #cloud9fabrics #konacotton #shotcotton #makersgunnamake #creativelifehappylife #stephskardalquiltsmarch2016 ...

Phew. After some seam ripping for smooshed fabric and binding fixes, all ready for handstitching the binding after the kids go to bed tonight. And then on my next quilt I'll have to learn how to bury thread ends because I didn't know that was a thing until now. #quilt #quilting #machinequilting #modernquilting #modernquilt #paperpiecing #cirrussolids #cloud9fabrics #konacotton #shotcotton #geometric #makersgunnamake #creativelifehappylife #stephskardalquiltsmarch2016 ...

A sneak peak of the back, which highlights the quilting. I'm happy with the bit of quilting outside of stitching the ditch. #machinequilting #paperpiecing #cirrussolids #cloud9fabrics #quilt #modernquilts #modernquilting #modernquilt #geometric #stephskardalquiltsmarch2016 ...

Ta-done. Unofficial phone photo after a washing. I'll have to get the husband and good camera out for a photo without a storm drain in the background. And more details later on the blog. #modernquilts #modernquilting #modernquilt #paperpiecing #machinequilting #cirrussolids #cloud9fabrics (dark yellow) #konacotton (white) #shotcotton (light yellow) #makersgunnamake #creativelifehappylife #quilt #quilttop #quilts #diy #handmade #quiltsofinstagram #igquiltfest #aurifil #aurifilthread #stephskardalquiltsmarch2016 ...
