CREATE Mini-Quilt

This was a “quick” mini-quilt I made using some Northcott charm squares that my mom won at Quiltcon 2017. She wasn’t going to use them so she gave them to me. I used this to try out a bunch of techniques on my sewing machine which I’ve only had a year. Some new, some I just need to work on. Here’s what they were:

  • Quarter square triangles (I mostly did okay, but they’re not all perfect)
  • Embroidery (the CREATE word obviously, but I did this very soon after getting my machine so when I did it, it was one of the first embroidery pieces I had done)
  • Stitch in the ditch using my edgestitch foot (this is along the black lines and binding)
  • Free motion stippling/wandering using my Bernina Stitch Regulator (you can see the close up of this down below. Pretty happy with how it worked out.

I guess I’ve been dragging it out over a year, but using it to try out different techniques the whole time. Although the total time spent on it was not that much so that’s why it’s a “quick” mini-quilt. Overall, very happy with how it turned out and looking forward to using more of these techniques again!
