MAKE Mini Quilt in Modern Patchwork Magazine

MAKE Mini Quilt

You like to make stuff, yes? Then you neeeeeeeed to make this MAKE mini quilt that I designed especially for you. Display it in your maker studio, STAT.

It's a fun little sewing project inspired by the wonderfully geeky and 80's pixel font "Edit Undo" by Brian Kent. You can find it in the Summer 2016 issue of Modern Patchwork magazine. It measures about 9" x 26" and it's a fantastic way to use 1" strips of fabric scraps.

It looks pretty good on a light background. I used Kona Cotton White for the background and for the letters I used SunPrint 2016 fabric prints by Alison Glass for Andover Fabrics.

I must say it looks cool on a dark background, too. Here I used Kona Cotton Charcoal for the background and batik scraps for the letters.

You can make one using the publisher's instructions in Modern Patchwork magazine by using sewing pins and pressing seams open, or you can make it the easy-peasy way like I did, with glue-basting and pressing seams in one direction. If you go the glue-basting route, grab some Elmer's Washable School Glue and these Micro Fine Glue Tips sold by my bud Cristy Fincher.

This is a quick make, folks! (see what I did there?) Make one and share it online via #MAKEminiquilt.
