The Circular Web Mini Quilt is my response to the Project Quilting 14.5 prompt.
Project Quilting is a series of challenges hosted by Persimon Dreams that requires a project to be made with your interpretation of the challenge rule. Read all about Project Quilting on Kim’s blog. This is the 14th year of this and I heard about it and decided to join in and challenge myself, especially with the quilting design side of things. I am also trying to do most if not all of the quilting on my domestic.
What was the rule?
RULE 5: YOUR PROJECT MUST not contain any squares.
How it works
You have one week (until noon the next Sunday) to meet the challenge.
- Every challenge piece must be a FINISHED project seen through from INCEPTION to COMPLETION during the challenge timeline.
- Each piece must stand alone as DONE to count toward prizes.
- Your project does not need to be a traditional quilt, but must meet at least one of these requirements: include patchwork, include appliqué, have 3 layers stitched together by hand or machine.
Tomorrow mini quilt (project quilting 14.4)
Did I stick to the rule?
This mini quilt started as a circle and was going to contain many non square quilting designs, then i maked the circle in regular spots to be able to cut a circle and the wedges showed so I went with that. I may revisit the variety of quilting designs another time.
After marking the wedges, I marked regular intervals and decided to create a swirling web type with sort of stright lines, this worked to some degree, it was a lesson in marking fully and planning better than I did to get a better result.
After the semi successful quilting I simply trimmed the backing and double folded it over the edge of teh quilt sandwich and sewed it down. Not perfect but it is done. Bias binding would have been neater for sure. Time was against me this week.
Black fat quarter was used with a FQ of red for the backing and binding
This was quilted on my domestic machine rather than the longarm.
I used the Janome walking foot to quilt this entire mini. Basically I travelled from one mark to the next around the wedges and outwards on the quilt
- cotton fabric and scrap of wadding
- 18 inches across
- back fabric for top
- red fabric for the backing/binding
- Rasant thread charcoal and red
- Title – ‘Circular Web’
