Aurifil Mini Quilt–Designer Kimberly Jolly

I’m in love with Mini Quilts.  There I said it.  It took me awhile to get there but now that I am I’m 100% in.  It is such a great way to test out a technique, a crazy fabric combination, and more without committing to a huge project.  And in the end – you have a little quilt that can be hung on any wall as a perfect piece of fabric art.  I finally get it.

Each month, Aurifil has a designer post a pattern for a mini quilt on their blog.  This month the designer is Kimberly Jolly of the Fat Quarter Shop.  I’ve decided to do these mini quilts with my original spoonflower fabrics.  I have TONS of it that I look at and pet but never use.  I think now is the time to really give them a try and see how they look cut up and pieced back together!

This month I’m using my fabrics …

And here is what my ‘Aurifil Mini Quilt’ top looks like!  I love how the variety in fabric makes this such a dimensional and intriguing two fabric quilt. 

I hope to quilt it soon and have it in my ‘finished’ pile but I have a few deadlines I really have to focus on first.  Stay tuned!

  1. You fabric is gorgeous Kim, and so is the quilt! You really captured the essence of an apple orchard in just a few simple shapes!
