Great Stained glass windows mini quilt from swimbikequilt. We have featured Kate before, how could we not have! She always comes up with some really great finishes! I love this mini, the jewel tones really pop next to the black and white. Really creative and pretty! She also does a great charity called 100 quilts for kids, and anyone can join and make a quilt for a child in need.
I signed up for Rachel's Curves Class after seeing a few of her excellent preview projects, and figured it would be easier to take the plunge with a little hand holding. I think curves are just like anything else--zippers, sewing with non-cotton fabrics, etc. They seem scary, you try it out, realize it isn't too difficult, and go on from there.
Stained Glass Windows was inspired by a scrappy color wheel from Rachel's class, and a suggestion from Elizabeth to invert the color wheel similar to a doll quilt in progress by Norma of Petit Design Co. The quilting is perhaps my favorite part--I outlined the "cathedral window" three times, both inside and outside the window. Note: the map fabric is fromEtchings by 3 Sisters from Moda.
I used one of my favorite Loulouthi prints for the back,
and the polka dot binding is from Cosmo Cricket's Circa 1934.
