Quilt: May 2018

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!

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
