The fabulous team of Fat Quarter Shop and It’s Sew Emma have done it again with their free mini quilt pattern – Nail Polish. Make sure you check out the accompanying video at the Fat Quarter Shop Youtube channel.
I made mine into a quilted pillow/cushion cover. I just need to find an insert.
This is a great project to use up your solids (or in my case, some textured solids).
The finished mini quilt is 14 1/2″ x 22 1/2″. Using my Art Gallery Pure Elements, Laura Gunn Painters Canvas and Metallic Tussah from Robert Kaufman I made the nail polish in a plumb shade. I used Oval Elements for the backing and binding.
Using Aurifil 5015 40wt, 2600 50wt, 2024 50wt, 4030 50wt and 2630 50wt cotton thread I used a combination of freehand and digital quilting to give body to the cushion/pillow cover. The back is also quilted in 4030 50wt cotton.
The Fat Quarter Shop have kindly given me a $50 gift voucher to give to one lucky reader.
Think of all the beautiful solids you could purchase with $50.
To be in the draw for the gift voucher, just leave me a comment on this post telling me your favourite shade of nail polish.
The competition will be closed Wednesday 13th August midnight AEST.
