Wreath Mini Quilt

04 September

I finally have a Christmas quilt to display in my house! It’s about 28″ square and will hang on the wall in my home entry. I love how simple and modern it is. The pattern is “hanging around” from Cindy Lammon’s book Simply Modern Christmas.

For fabrics, I used:

  • Kona White
  • green print in Vanessa Christenson’s ombre fabric collection by Moda Fabrics
  • green Featherleaf print in Heather Bailey’s Lottie Da fabric collection by Free Spirit Fabrics
  • an unknown red tonal polka dot print for the binding

I used a portable design wall for quilt layout. Someone’s been a naughty, naughty girl. No biggie, tho, since it’s such a small quilt it was easy to reconfigure. And can I just say how I adore using ombre? It’s like I have tons of green prints, but I’m only using one fabric. Love it.

For quilting, I just did straight lines galore on my Juki with Aurifil 40wt thread. I started in the center with lines 2″ apart, then quilted outward reducing the spacing gradually by 1/4″. This makes the edges have matchstick quilting, which I did for the first time! It was pretty fun.
