Holly's Mini Quilt
Happy Thursday! It's time for another mini quilt! As I mentioned earlier this month, I've been busy making a few birthday mini quilts this Spring and I'm going to share one each week. This week's mini is for Holly!
Holly is one of the few people I know that loves purple as much as I do. After a weekend get together a few months back, we discovered how much we are truly alike. Isn't that the best? Anyways, I knew I had to use purple in this mini quilt, and I knew Holly had a liking for Alexia Abegg's Liberty Love book! I went with the Classic Spools Quilt. It was really fun to stitch up!
I made just four spools and turned two on their sides to give the little quilt a bit of extra interest. I focused on eggplant and orchid purples with a little pop of lime green to mix it up! I quilted it with 50wt Aurifil thread and the three-step zig-zag stitch.
I used Pure Element sandstone for the background, along with blenders for the backing and binding. All of the fabrics used are from Art Gallery Fabrics.
I want to make one of these ones for my craft room. Either that or an entire quilt! :)
