Candy Orchard Mini Quilt + Embroidery

Fruit Mini Quilt Pattern

Once I first noticed Make it Mini I used to be immediately taken by the duvet quilt, Candy Orchard. Possibly it’s due to the time of 12 months when recent fruit is SO good. (Particularly peaches. Give me recent peaches each day!)

I used prints from the Dawn assortment by Fran Gulick blended with greens together with Candy Mint Texture + different scraps from my stash. The background is Oxford Blue stable from Riley Blake Designs.

I used my Child Lock embroidery machine so as to add the So Candy embroidery design. (I used to be capable of scan the design with my Future II after which sew it out straight onto the pieced quilt prime.) I used Aurifil 28 weight thread to provide the stitching slightly little bit of a heavier really feel.

For the quilting I additionally used my embroidery machine and the Clear Blue Tiles system to machine quilt my mini. I used the throughout loops design for a easy background quilting. I love that machine quilting generally is a no-brainer with the embroidery machine doing the entire work.
