This week's Project QUILTING challenge is Mining Diamonds. I chose to go with the gemstone and reduced the Alison Glass Trinket pattern to 25%.
My daughter helped me decide on my color palette, white, light greys, and Kona Bright Pink for the background.
Reducing the pattern brought the 4" gem down to a tiny 1" size.
Since I was using such tiny pieces in my paper piecing, I opted for the Add-An-Eighth ruler for trimming my seams.
I decided on free motion echo quilting with 50wt Aurifil Fuchsia (#4020) and machine binding with a light grey. The quilt finishes at 2 1/2" x 3 1/2", the fourth in my Project QUITLING Season 13 Artist Trading Card series.

We are one day into the latest Project QUILTING challenge, Kitchen Influence. I've continued my series of artist trading card sized mini quilts.
When I saw the challenge, I immediately thought of this adorable silverware fabric. Slight miscalculation on my assumption that the binding would fully cover the knife. Oops. I free motion quilted the details of the fork and spoon with Aurifil 50wt Light Delft Blue (#2720).
The quilt finishes at 3 1/2" x 2 1/2". The back shows the quilting better. And you can see my tiny little 1" x 1/4" fusible tags I recently purchased from The Heart of Wonder on Etsy.

Continuing with my new series of Project QUILTING artist trading cards (ATCs) I created a 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" quilt featuring a silhouette of my 3-year-old niece. I used solid black batik with black MistyFuse to fusible appliqué the silhouette to my background fabric. My quilting is minimal, just long the edge of the silhouette (more easily seen from the back). This is my submission to this week's In Silhouette one week quilt challenge from Project QUILTING.
I started with this photo my sister took for me of my niece. I printed it on paper at the size I wanted to use it, traced the border of my niece with a marker, then used it as my pattern to cut out my fused fabric.
Here's a peek at the back.

For PQ 13.1 I created a whole cloth ATC.
