Pickle Dish mini quilt


I am smitten with this mini quilt! It is a class sample for my Pickle Dish blocks class on 5th November 2016 at Patchfinders (as of writing I believe this class is full but you can always call to check or add your name to the waiting list, I will try to run it again next year if there is interest!).


The blocks are entirely machine pieced and I chose to hand quilt the mini. I used foundation paper piecing to construct the arcs and I have tips and tricks for piecing those curved pieces.


I enjoyed playing with the colours and using up fabric scraps from my stash. There are so many possibilities for colour variations!


There is one little fussy cut in my mini but I also think it would look great with more.


The mini was pieced with Aurifil 50wt and then hand quilting using perle thread. I love how the white blends in nicely but creates bold texture.


I finished putting the binding on this afternoon and I even like it from the back!


It will be displayed in the classroom and after teaching I definitely want to find a place to hang this in my home! The finished mini quilt is 16" square.


This is the final make from my Q3 FAL list ☑  (it was originally going to be a cushion but I hope it still counts that I made it a mini!)

Happy Friday everyone!
