I am glad to share with you a new free quilt pattern. It’s a small raw edge applique quilt, it measures 14” x 29”. At this size, the quilting was a lot of fun!
At first I wanted to make a two color version, then I remembered that I still have colored thread (the spools used for this Aurifil challenge). Very happy I started to match fabric with thread.
The thread is Aurifil 50wt and the fabric is Fossil Fern (Benartex). The background is kona cotton.
I really wanted to quilt the entire quilt with simple and dense lines that follow the design. But after I secured the edges of the applique with zig-zag stitches, I lost all my patience and switched to the darning foot and enjoyed free motion quilting feathers.
Changing often the color of the thread wasn’t too much trouble!
I love the look of the quilting done with this fine thread.
Yes, it’s FLAT!
Two color versions- it would be hard to choose the colors!
I hope you like this mini quilt as much as I do. And stay tuned for other three or four designs in this series. These will be the free designs of July.
