Introducing Mini Euclid Avenue February 02 2016, 0 Comments

Euclid Avenue is one of our patterns that was influenced by some tile we spotted in an old hotel in Boston and one we really wanted to make into a mini quilt when we launched a line of mini quilt patterns. It is a fun design to play with scale, color and contrasts. We decided to make this Mini Euclid Avenue version in the same colors as the original, but without prints, since the pieces are pretty small!

We chose 8 coordinating colors from Marcia Derse's Palette collection from Windham Fabrics. We paired 2 blues, 2 emeralds, 2 teals and 2 limes to achieve the look of shadowing! Kristy quilted a grid on the quilt and bound it with the perfect Alison Glass print!

Here is a photo for scale, so you can see how small the mini is when being compared to the original Euclid AvenueThis mini quilt has the biggest change in scale and the smallest pieces. To see the pattern, there needed to be a certain number of blocks repeated and to keep the quilt small, so this is size we ended up with. I love how tiny it is!

We wanted to make one more version of the Mini Euclid Avenue quilt pattern before Quilt Market. I loved my sister's version of Euclid Avenue and wanted to recreate a quilt in similar colors. I chose 2 greys, 2 oranges, 2 blues and 2 yellows. The yellow is a little different than my sister's color combo, but I think she would approve!
