Mini Euclid Avenue Gets A Makeover!
Fabric to RAINBOW
In my quest to rainbowify everything, I decided to remake our Mini Euclid Avenue quilt pattern. And this time, as you may have guessed, it is rainbow! I modeled the mini after it’s sidekick pattern, Euclid Avenue’s current cover quilt. I love making mini quilts and love displaying them even more. This baby is going on the wall where I can admire it everyday!
Picking the fabrics was fun…. And a bit time consuming. I dug through my scrap bins and made each color at a time. There are no repeats in the colors. That means 168 colorful scraps plus assorted white on white background fabrics. It was fun to find the small little treasure I have saved and finally have a project small enough to use them. I also threw in a few fussy cut bits in there, can you spot them?
I love the way this pattern takes on a total different look depending on where you place the fabrics. Take a look at the original here to compare. Two completely different looks!
- Pattern: Mini Euclid Avenue
- Full-size Sidekick Pattern: Euclid Avenue
- Fabric: 168 Colorful Scraps + 7 White on White prints
- Quilting: Vertical lines through the blocks
- Finished Size: 10.5in x 13.5in
- Techniques: Foundation paper-piecing
- Tip: Remove the paper before sewing the rows together. Reduces the bulk and help keep those points crisp!
My favorite quilting move is to finish a scrappy rainbow quilt with a black and white stripe binding. I just LOVE how it looks! And striped bindings look so good mitered into the corners. Oo la la… if I do say so myself.
Simple, but effective. Little wall quilts don’t need a ton of quilting, but the quilting can really elevate a project! We went with simple vertical lines down the middle of the blocks. I love how this little rainbow quilt looks when the light hits it. There is a beautiful texture created from all the seams and quilting stitches.
