Spin

My tiny piecing class with Chawne Kimber has inspired me to continue to piece small.  I've gotten a bit better at it - these strips are more consistently 1/8'' than the last time.


After much auditioning, I decided to set my block inside black.  To quilt, I started at the center and quilted a line on the black, following the square spiral to the outside of the quilt.  I continued to echo that at roughly 1/8''  until the entire background was quilted.


Sewing on black fabric with black thread and following your previous quilted lines is VERY hard to do.  Instead of my walking foot, I used an open foot that gave me the best visibility.  Given the piece is small, this worked quite well.





I will be entering spin into Curated Quilts call for black & white mini quilts.

The quilt is faced (tutorial) and finishes at 11'' x 11''.  I used scraps of black and white from my stash.


Have a wonderful day! Patty

  6. Pretty awesome! Black is tough to sew on. I find myself avoiding it more and more as my eyes age.
