stitch: Modern Patchwork Mini Quilt

CityCraft is hosting Modern Patchwork Mini Quilt club – a monthly meet-up to showcase mini quilts made from unique patterns in Modern Patchwork by Elizabeth Hartman. Our second meeting was last night, I was running late and caught the tail end of it – as in I ran in to show Callie my mini quilt, she snapped a pic and then I headed home due to the fact everyone else had already left.

Initially, the pattern called for 9 swatches of fabric (you can view Elizabeth’s write-up here), but the graphic designer in me decided to simplify the pattern and only use 5 colors. I have to say, I’m really happy with the way it turned out and can’t wait to make a full size quilt.

Back of the block

When it came time to quilt the block, I decided to keep it simple and use straight line stitching. Didn’t take as long as I thought and will more than likely use straight line stitching for the full size.

Hope you guys enjoy the post. Will let you know how the next mini quilt goes. Cheers! xo Kristi

stitch: Quilt Sneak Peek

A slew of my friends are having babies this summer, so I’ve been a busy bee on the weekends making various baby blankets. I haven’t had a chance to properly photograph the current quilt that I just completed, but wanted to post a snap shot. I am absolutely loving the pattern and color combo. It’s the perfect quilt for a summer picnic in the park, right?! ┬áCheers! xo Kristi
