This week I finished up a few tops and started getting more my quilts up on Etsy. I finished a mitten, took an online Art and Stitch class and designed a few quilts for clients on EQ8.
I used the Kaffe Paperweight fabric for the outer border on the heart quilt. It ties in nicely with the inner colors. There is a stripe of it down the middle of the backing too.
The Crayon Box quilt was fun to piece and I think I need to do mitered corners on my borders more often. Jinny Beyer has an easy way to measure and cut them, if you go to her website https://www.jinnybeyer.com and go to “free patterns” there are a few that you can download with the instructions for how to do the mitered borders. I bought this as a kit from Craftsy last year, it was on sale and looked simple enough. The directions are well written and there are full color fabric pictures so when you are separating the strips, you know which is which. There are 36 different prints in this project. The only bad thing about this kit was that they shrank the instructions down to fit two pages on one page. At times I had to break out the magnifier. There were many inset and Y seams, and the majority of them turned out well.
I started another kit I had bought on sale, I think in 2016, too. I’m planning on making it into two smaller quilts, instead of a twin size. The prints are too cute for an older child, but just right for a baby or toddler.
Linking up with Judy at Small Quilts and Doll Quilts for Design Wall Monday today.
