Minion Quilt for My Little Minion : A Finished Quilt
A while back I picked up a One in a Minion pack of charm squares by Quilting Treasures and as soon as I opened the package Nora started asking for a quilt or really anything made with this minion fabric. So after this pack sat on my cutting table I finally decided on a pattern. I used the Wiggling block from Modern One Block Quilts and I love the effect of a simple block that is rotated to make the quilt look way more complicated than it really is.
Since minions wear their little denim overalls, I had to use Essex Yarn-dyed Linen in Denim by Robert Kaufman. And I love the overall look and it becomes so soft in the wash.
I used Shannon Fabrics Cuddle in Navy as the backing. I'm now in love with using cuddle fabric as backing and need to make a quilt for myself.
For the quilting I did a little stitch in the ditch to help stabilize the quilt sandwich. Then I did some organic lines with a little curve to them.
