Jacey's Blind Co-pilot Mini Quilt
Happy Tuesday! It's time for another mini quilt! As I mentioned last week, 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 Jacey!

I have been wanting to try this technique out for a while, and Jacey is all about this type of improv piecing, so it was the perfect match! I used the stitch and flip triangle technique as outlined in Quilting Modern by Jacquie Gehring and Katie Pedersen.  I choose the design and took color and quilting inspiration from the Blind Co-Pilot Quilt in the book! It finishes at 18" square.

Jacey loves grellow (gray + yellow), and I added some pops of navy and orange to mix it up! I wanted to keep the quilting simple like the quilt in the book, there is plenty going on in the piecing and prints! I used the darker gray Aurifil 50wt thread from my Favorite Things thread collection.

For the mini quilt top used mainly blenders, all from various Art Gallery Fabrics collections.  For the background I used Pure Element Moonstone and Honey for the backing.

It's bound up in a sweet mustard print from Reminisce by Bonnie Christine! Isn't that a great print for binding? I love it. As always, I attached my binding by machine. You can find a tutorial for the method I use here. It's easy and quick!

Cheers!

  1. I love it so much! It's already hanging (as you know), and I need to get a picture of it in the room. Thank you again. You completely nailed it, and it was worth the wait! I love the Moonstone shade of Pure Elements, by the way!
