Mini Quilt Sunday

I'm not sure I've ever posted twice in one day, but I made this mini quilt today and had to share. In a book of graphic patterns I took out from the library I saw a painting that inspired this quilt. I was planning to make a pillow out of this, but decided in the end that it will hold up better being up on the wall. Plus it goes really well next to my green couch. :)

I have also been thinking about doing something similar and experimenting with fabric paint/stencils. The background is osnaburg, which was the main neutral in this quilt. I love the texture of it.

This was my first time doing free motion on my new machine and it didn't come out that great. Apparently Janome sells another foot that's better for this, but it's sold separately. After today I think that will be well worth it.

I bound it with one of the herringbone prints from the Modern Meadow line and LOVE how that looks as a binding! Uh oh... :)


  1. I absolutely love this, Meaghan!

  2. I love Meaghan! Very cool!

    What Janome do you have? I have the Marie Osmund one (yeah, I know it's awesome) & I have a terrible time free motion quilting with it. Does your have a throat plate that moves around the needle? That's what mine snags on & I end up putting painters tape over the whole throat plate while I free motion. A terrible solution, but it works.

  3. I found your site very beautiful and distinguished too. Thank you for your good work and continue.
