Hello - I am finally sharing my Dear Stella / Timeless Treasures "Modern Traditional" mini quilt with you!
I adore this mini quilt. Definitely one of my all-time favourites! I love 'low volume', text and strong, saturated colours. Throw in some paper piecing and a few curves and presto - my interpretation of the theme for a "Modern Traditional" mini quilt! I followed the rules: my mini is 20" square; I used no solids; and I used at least 2 prints from each company. Oh how I love rules - they make you work harder I think and the creative results reflect that.
I did some straight(ish) line quilting using invisible thread on the front and Aurifil on the back. I love the texture of dense quilting - and in this case INVISIBLE! Hanging corners were added too.
The New York Beauty blocks are from Ulas Quiltseite and are each 8" unfinished so I added a border to make the mini 20 inches square. In the picture below you can see some of the straight lines better in the bottom NYB block (pre-washing).
My new favourite go-to binding is now Timeless Treasures Sketch in White/Black.
Well there you have it - my "Modern Traditional" mini quilt using Dear Stella and Timeless Treasures fabrics.
