I started a mini quilt on the weekend with the intention of posting it on Monday, but I seem to have underestimated either how long this was going to take to piece or maybe more so the lack of sewing time available on the weekend.
What caught my eye in this book was the Garden Path quilt. It is made with a wide variety of prints in a largely pastel palette, and pieced with strips sewn together to make Strata, which is then re-cut and assembled freeform. I really wanted to try the intuitive design and a mini quilt is a great way to try out different techniques.
Quilt Top measures 25 inches x 25 inches
I have used both large and small scale pastel prints by Kaffe Fassett as well as a few high-contrast fabrics to add depth to this mini quilt.
In my next post I will detail the steps that I take to ensure that a quilt top and the backing are centered. Although ensuring the quilt back is straight is easier for a mini quilt, the technique does apply to quilts of all sizes.
I am sure it is still Monday somewhere in the world. Right?
