I had so much fun making this little quilt using a wonderful tutorial by Quilting Jetgirl.
Thank you so much to those of you who left a comment on my last post giving me your opinion on what layout option I should choose.
In the end, I went with my gut instinct and most of you agreed with me that this “stacked squares” option was the way to go.
For the backing, I used a fun barcode fabric that I picked up as a remnant for two dollars!
I quilted it in a spiral pattern that I thought would be a good contrast to the square angles of the front.
This is a quilting style I’ve always wanted to try and I think it adds interest and texture to this cute 28½ inch square quilt.
I used an ancient black fabric with a gold fleck from my stash for the binding.
I have already had thoughts of making this mini quilt again but with totally different colours and maybe using Layout Option #4 this time.
This little mini has been a much needed “happy” project for me.
