It’s week two of our Quiltologie Mini Mania summer series and this week we are turning cartwheels for summer fun. This fun design features quick strip piecing and template cutting. It is the perfect way to up your quilting game!
The Quiltologie Cartwheels mini quilt kit is made by Fabric Editions and comes complete with all fabrics.
- white on white print for ground
- assorted turquoise, green and gray prints
- background fabric & binding
Additional Supplies Needed:
- cotton batting
- rotary cutter & cutting mat
- quilting ruler
- removable marking tool
- fine pins
- glue stick
- card stock for template making
- sewing machine
- iron & ironing board
The Cartwheels mini quilt finishes at 18 1/2″ x 18 1/2″. It is designed to help improve your comfort level with cutting templates and I’ve even got a quick video to show you how!
But let’s not stop there. Since the kit features more of a tonal color pallet and whites, I thought it would be fun showcase the design from a different point of view. I went for a splash of color and started a red print from my scrap basket. The balance of the focal colors were all pulled from this one print. Let’s take a look at how it turned out.
My Cartwheels Mini Quilt
This pattern is really the perfect way to practice so many skill builders in quilting including:
It always amazes me how fantastic fabric scraps look together long after the original project has been completed.
In the end, I just love the way it turned out. Now my challenge is what to make with it. I’m thinking a fun pillow cover to SWAP with a new sewing buddy from the next Scrappy Girls Club SWAP.
Remember, you can find all of the Quiltologie Mini Mania quilt kits by Fabric Editions at your local Jo-Ann Fabric Store and Craft Stores.
