April Quilty Box
Friday, April 29, 2016
Last year I was approached by the lovely folks behind Quilty Box about a potential collaboration. Quilty Box is a monthly subscription box for quilters! Each month's box is filled with a variety of fun products, curated by designers, bloggers, and organizations. The April Quilty Box was curated by me! It was a really cool experience helping to chose the products for the box, and have the opportunity to share my work with their subscribers.
I shot a little unboxing video of my box! The theme of my box was triangles! It includes the following: Blockade Mini Quilt Pattern, a freebie using half-square triangles that I designed just for the box. Geese in Flight Quilt Pattern which features no-waste flying geese and includes five quilt sizes. Triangularity Quilt Pattern which uses equilateral triangles and features five quilt sizes and custom sizing options. A nine fat quarter bundle of Joel Dewberry's Wander fabrics, in cool blues and mustard. A bottle of Flatter by Soak, great for keeping your triangles in check! And finally a spool of So Fine polyester thread by Superior Threads.
I wanted to share a few photos of the mini quilt I made! I used Pure Element solids by Art Gallery Fabrics. I've been trying to stretch myself and use solids more often. This mini was a fun excuse to do that!
I quilted this mini with straight lines, using the half-square triangle seams as a guide. I used my Clover Hera Marker to mark out my quilting lines. I washed and dried it get rid of the lines faster.
For the backing I used a print from Nordika and bound it up in a print from Indelible.
