Posts Tagged ‘Miniature Quilts’

I joined a blog challenge to complete some of my unfinished quilt project. Of which I have MANY!  I  stated in a previous post that I would finish 4 quilts,  two mini’s, one I am making for my husband and a jelly roll quilt.

I finished the minis and the one for my husband.  The jelly roll is close. I just have to sew the binding down.  That should get done within the next week.  Here’s what I did.

2 Mini quilts ready to hang on a wall.

Turning Twenty Pattern

The last one is a quilt I made for my husband. I took a workshop given by Beth Helfter on her Syncopated Ribbons pattern.  The colors w20160407_124310ere chosen for the vintage snowmobiles my husband restores and collects. Many snowflake fabrics were used.  The back came from a collection of plaid fat quarters I had. The Turning Twenty pattern makes for a interesting design on the back of any quilt.  It looks very masculine. I quilted the main part of the quilt using a snowflake pantograph pattern.  In the border I used a snowmobile design from another pantograph I have. He loves it!

Now to figure out what to finish in the next quarter.
