So what has resulted in Kate Spain's joy? Could it be the stack of 16" mini quilts created by our quilt guild and shared with her this past Saturday?
But wait! How did we get to this point? Let's backtrack and explain. It all began with a visit from Michele Muska, who suggested it might be fun for our guild to do a challenge using the E-Z quilting mini templates.
Moda donated some, and by some we mean a lot of Kate Spain's new line "Canyon", which if you are interested, is coming out in October. With mini quilt templates and fabric in hand we were off to our creative spaces.
Several months later, we gathered to admire the results.
Sharon used a mini-fat template to make her first ever mini-quilt. She took a larger version of one of her quilts and shrunk it down to size. Betsy was inspired by a photo of Nancy Zieman of Sewing with Nancy showing a more modern way to use the template without points. Carole Ann enjoyed working her 60 degree diamond in this pattern.
Our last group of mini-quilts displays hexagons English Paper Pieced by Michelle who tried hand sewing and hand quilting for the first time. Gail created beautiful shapes using the 120 degree triangle.
This is when the mini quilts were revealed to Kate Spain last Saturday.
Thank you Michele Muska, E-Z Quilting, Kate Spain and Moda for a very fun challenge!
