Air Castle Mini Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I am most proud that I actually finished it. If you look closely, you'll see a couple of feathers mixed into the flowers. I also used the pumpkin seed pattern as the central design over each of the air castle blocks. I filled in the melons to hide my bumpy piecing. The quilt measures 13 inches across and 22 1/2 inches long. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I really should have marked the clam/ fans, and I should have redone the binding.

What you will need

  • 100% cotton material
  • YLI silk thread in outer border
  • YLI silk thread in triangles
  • Bottom Line thread in bobbin and used for the pumpkin seed design(a.k.a. teacup and saucer design... a.k.a. orange peel design)
  • and fusible fleece for the batting.

Q&A with Michelequilts

Ann Petersen asked:
Lovely quilting that really brings this piece to life! Congratulations! (And if you decide that you do want to redo the binding, it is possible at a later date - I know because I've redone them years later!)
Michelequilts answered:
Thank you. I am going to redo it after a mini class at retreat. :) Your class was a wonderful help.
