I've made lots of progress on my mini quilt, Floret from the Sweetness(a trio of mini quilts) pattern by Corey Yoder.
And that's a good thing, since the Minis and More Parade is coming up very soon!
The fabrics I'm using are a mix of two not yet released lines, Bright Sun by Sherri and Chelsi, and also Tucker Prairie by One Canoe Two.
I love how well they're going together! Very cheery, bright and vibrant!
This was the first time I've ever had fabric before it was available for sale, so it was quite a treat for me!
I was lucky enough to be a winner of Moda's "I Didn't Get To Go To Market Giveaway" a few months ago and that's how these brand new fabrics ended up on my doorstep.
I'm thrilled to have both new lines in my Floret Mini!
Wondering about the thread in the picture above?
I am too!
The big stitch quilting craze has pulled me in, so I'm giving it a try on my Floret Mini.
Any tips of suggestions?
I fell in love with the big stitch quilting on Corey's Floret mini quilt and I'm going to shameless copy what she did.
I couldn't find size 8 perle cotton in any bright pretty colors in my area, I had read that was a good size thread to use, so I went with size 12 Valdani that I found a my LQS instead.
I hope it works well with a size 9 Embroidery needle, because I bought some of those too.
I can't wait to get started!
I guess I had better finish sewing my blocks together first!
