show off friday~~~improv mini quilt

Show Off Friday
I finally finished my improv mini quilt from my class with Heather Jones at
The Makerie Sewing Retreat in Boulder, Colorado.

Heather Jones Improv mini quilt class

It was so much fun to learn new techniques from a quilt designer!  One of the techniques that
I tried for the first time was machine stitched binding.  I always machine stitch my binding on the
right side of the quilt and then hand stitch the binding on the back.

I used Heather's tutorial to machine stitch the binding on both is a faster
way to finish a quilt, and it looks great on a modern quilt : )

Here are some pictures of my mini quilt in progress:

Here are the pictures of the finished mini quilt that measures
16 X 16 inches.

I had a wonderful time in Heather's class at The Makerie Sewing Retreat,
 and I will definitely use her tutorial on
 machine stitch binding again!
