I follow a blog called Canoe Ridge Creations. Back in October of 2013 I joined her Fresh Mini Quilt Club. For a fee the participants received patterns for six quilts, one each month. I successfully finished the
and the Sweet Tooth Mini Quilt
My Sweet Tooth Mini Quilt looks slightly different from the author’s original intention because I decided to take a bit of artistic license. Even though I made changes I still utilized the half square triangle pattern.
Third in line for the Canoe Ridge Creations mini quilt subscription was the quilt called Stix. Stix would be a wonderful quilt for a beginner to tackle because it is relatively simple to construct. The pattern calls for eight different fabric colors plus white. Of course any color combination can be used, which makes it a wonderful opportunity to show off your creativity.
I raided my stash for my fabrics. I chose nine different fat quarters. With relatively little effort I had my quilt assembled and loaded on my long arm quilt machine and in less than thirty minutes I had the quilting complete. A geometric meander was the quilting pattern I chose. Here’s my Stix mini quilt.
If you compare my finished project with the authors you will see that mine looks a smidge different from hers.. The author designed hers to be square. I wanted my mini quilt to be rectangular so I assembled it accordingly. So what do you think? Isn’t it just adorable.
- Finished Size = 18 1/2″ x 26″
- Time Spent Quilting = 24 minutes
- Number of Quilting Stitches = 11,283
- Thread Used = Omni Medium Grey
If you would like to make your very own Canoe Ridge Creations mini quilts you may purchase the patterns individually through her website.
As always, thanks so much for taking the time to visit my blog. I’m so glad you did. See you next time!
