Holly's Mini Quilt

Holly's Classic Thread Spools 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's Classic Thread Spools Mini Quilt
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! :)

  2. In the first pic, I thought you'd quilted your mini with a hexie pattern. Those zigzags are very sneaky! I'll be filing that one away for future use!
