    WIP Wednesday – Tula Pink Mini Quilt Swap – 3.18.15

    Posted under News, WIP Wednesday

    Hi folks! It sure has been a while, but we’ve been busy launching a new website, losing access to our blog, regaining access to our blog, and moving shop. Phew! Things are finally settling down, and as you can see, the blog is back up! We have a new warehouse space and we LOVE it! So much more space, and hopefully, this summer, we’ll be open a few times for open shop days and sew days. You’ll want to sign up for our newsletter if you’re local so we can let you know when that will happen! So if you’re local to Denver, or in Colorado, sign up here to be the first to know!

    Tula Pink Mini Quilt - Fabrics

    With all the changes going on and having gotten the flu, I’ve not sewn a single thing in almost six weeks (!!!). I finally got in gear this week and started working on my mini quilt for the #tulapinkminiquiltswap hosted on Instagram. I cut into my hoarded and much coveted Tula Pink fabrics for this lovely and got right into sewing. My partner had requested that the prints not be chopped up but rather, showcased in a way, so that is where I headed with this.

    I quickly assembled some mini blocks, measuring 3-1/2″ I think, and then had to decide on a backing for my mini quilt. I don’t have a lot of yardage or bigger cuts in my stash, but decided it was either Kona White or Kaufman Yarn Dyed Essex Linen in Black… After much debate, I went with the black. It really helps the colors pop!

    Tula Pink Mini Quilt - Fabrics and Thread for hand-quilting

    Last night, I spent about 2 hours basting and quilting the mini quilt. I decided on a 1/4″ grid in the negative space and LOVE how it’s turning out. I also pulled some colored threads to do some hand quilting today, if I get a chance. I can’t wait to get this mini quilt completed and mailed off, and considering it’s due by the 27th, I better get to it! What are you working on lately?
