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.

A successful night at open sew with @kathleenbaden and my friends at the @villagefabricshop! #wip #sewing #quilt #quilting #quilts #handmade #quiltsofinstagram #machinepieced #machinepiecing #aurifil #aurifilthread #juki #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #makemodern #modernquilting #modernquilt #modernquilts #originaldesign #quiltinprogress #quilttop #stephskardalquiltswip #stephskardalquiltsmarchmini2018 ...

Today’s #igquiltfest: On my cutting mat (or just off my cutting mat because I put it away so none of my children color on it). A scramble of strips for the upcoming @curatedquilts call for submissions for triangle mini quilts. Soon to be something fun. #sewing #aurifil #aurifilthread #strips #machinepiecing #machinepieced #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #stephskardalquiltsmarchmini2018 ...

Pressing matters for today’s #igquiltfest from @amyscreativeside. I have a cheap Target iron, because I do things like glue basting and I don’t want to ruin a nice one. I would like a fancy one, one day, when I don’t do crazy things and have children that take care of belongings. Here’s the backside of my recent mini - see how the pressed back is the same design as the front. Mind blown!! #machinepiecing #machinepieced #sewing #quilt #quilttop #aurifil #aurifilthread #modernquilt #modernquilting #modernquilts #piecing #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #stephskardalquiltsmarchmini2018 ...

Mini quilt is quilted and bound. My working title of this is “Square Enough”. It needs a bit of blocking to make it a bit more square 😄 #sewing #quilt #miniquilt #aurifil #aurifilthread #juki #originalpattern #photoshop #handmade #modernquilt #modern #modernquilting #modernquilts #stephskardalquiltswip #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #wip #machinepieced #machinepiecing #walkingfoot #stephskardalquiltsmarchmini2018 ...
