Yeah, I’ve finished my DQS 13 mini quilt today. I am so pleased with it and find it rather difficult to part with. Hopefully my partner will love it as much as I do.
I wasn’t sure about how to quilt it (the story of my life) but in the end I went with one line of quilting in the centre, some stitch in the ditch between the pink and the purple and finally some echo quilting on the outside.
I had thought of putting a scrappy border around the flower first. However, when I saw the flower appliqued onto the linen background I felt that a border would distract from it too much. Instead I simply made the scrappy binding a little wider than usual. I really like the slightly wider binding, it frames the flower beautifully.
I’ve added a little pin cushion, scraps and some chocolate to my parcel. Bye bye little quilt, I hope you have a good life.
Edited to add: I have found the pattern for this quilt on Craftsy. The Girih Tiles pattern was designed by Endulzar and you can purchase the pattern here.
