iQuilt Mini


I had fun learning how to reverse applique to create this mini.  I've been working with scraps lately and decided to use the scraps from my scrap quilt that I'm putting together to create this fun little project.


I also enjoyed FMQ the wavy lines.  The effect it gives is perfect.  Plus, it's hard to make a mistake with this technique.



I found this teal binding fabric at the store that was a great accent to the colors of the scraps and the dark grey overlay.  I found the navy and teal fabric in my stash that worked perfectly as the backing.


Now that this little distraction of a project is done, I will return to my scrappy quilt.

  5. I really like this! I learned a reverse applique technique last year but I can't imagine doing letters using the technique I learned. Do you have a tutorial that you could point us to that you used?

    1. Thanks, Ruthann! I watched a tutorial on youtube for a circle and applied the technique to the letters. The tutorial called for freezer paper, which I'm positive would have worked better than interfacing. The interfacing made my mini very thick and hard to quilt.

  7. I like that! The contrast between the scraps and background really makes it pop.
