I’ve recently completed this dramatic starry mini-quilt for a tutorial for my friends at The Sewing Directory. I used some gorgeous monochrome fabrics from Moda – The Wordsmith Collection by Janet Clare, provided very kindly by Eclectic Maker, and some low volume fabrics from my own stash. I have never worked with such a limited palate before, but I think they work so well with this design!
The mini-quilt is foundation pieced on paper with 2 inch triangles, and although it looks pretty tricky, is actually fairly straightforward because of the accuracy that foundation paper piecing gives you. I made my first one for a swap last year, using scraps of purple, pink and white fabric .
So it’s great for using up scrap fabrics too, as long as you have good contrast between the fabrics for the different parts of the mini-quilt.
Hope you like it!
