Pay It Forward Mini Quilts

Wednesday, October 28, 2015

After pattern testing some quilt blocks for Melanie Collette (@hellomellydesigns), I had lots of little triangles that had been cut off from the corners when sewing the blocks (Rhinestones quilt pattern available here). I decided to make my BQF (Best Quilty Friend), Heather, a mini quilt for her Pay It Forward 2015 gift. At the same time, I decided to finish the orphan blocks as mini quilts to send as Pay It Forward gifts too!

I chose to use Friendship Stars to make Heather's quilt. The fabric is from a small fat quarter bundle that my mom gifted to me (originally from Wal-Mart).

I made up the pattern for the friendship star quilt and quilted it using straight lines with my walking foot in a criss-cross design on my Bernina 930 Record. I quilted the other three quilts with the same design, just a slightly larger spacing.

I printed a label on printable fabric, ironed it onto Heat-N-Bond, then ironed it onto the back of the quilt.

All four quilts were mailed out to surprise the recipients with some happy mail!
