I started this quilt back in mid-February, and it’s seen me through two bad sicknesses (flu, strep), two trips with baby Ingrid (QuiltCon and a technical conference), three(!) family birthdays and a few other ups and downs over the three months of other making. In that time, I also finished one wall quilt, this mini quilt, and 3 other mini quilts. Needless to say, I am happy to have finally finished it in mid-May!
This original design quilt was designed in Photoshop. It was machine pieced and machine quilted with a walking quilt on my Juki machine using Aurifil 50wt white thread. The quilt top piecing is made of Kona cotton solids, and the back was made with some solids hanging around in my stash.
I’m hoping to enter this in a couple quilt shows in the future, and I’ll share more photos and write more in detail about the inspiration behind the quilt design and color choices. In the meantime, enjoy the work in progress photostream below!
