I am pleased to share my latest two published patterns. My Infinity Quilt and a MINI version of Infinity.
If this quilt looks familiar, you are right. It was a featured quilt in the Spring 2016 Modern Quilts Unlimited Magazine.
I also had the privilege of showing Infinity at the 2017 International Quilt Festival Chicago in the Modern exhibit this past spring. It was very exciting.
I have updated the Infinity pattern since the magazine to include three sizes, throw, twin and queen size.
I also love the idea of having a mini version of one of my favorite quilts. So this little version is available as a separate pattern with a size of 24 1/2″ x 26″.
And of course I had to make a sample. Here is a little tour of making the MINI quilt.
I need to add that I use Electric Quilt software. With EQ 7, I could easily size down my pattern to make this mini quilt with very little effort! I love designing in EQ!
I did a lot of string piecing and I had to show this cute little sunflower quilts gadget to snip the threads between your string piecing. I picked it up at the Chicago show. So practical and cute!
There are quite a few half square triangles and I square them up as I go.
It is so fun to see the mini design come together! I am pinning with my hello kitty box of pins. Yeah, I got it in McDonald’s meal as a prize.
So I had just taken a class at Quiltcon for free motion feathers and I had just splurged on a new sewing machine. A babylock Jazz! So I had to try it out. I mimicked the quilting I used on my large quilt. The designs are so cute in miniature.
Thanks for letting me share! Tag me on Instagram at lorimillerdesigns, I would love to see your version!
