Well as you know, I was chosen to be a Brand Ambassador for Michael Miller Fabrics for 2020. We have a schedule full of projects that we will work on and share all year. The February project was optional but I wanted to get started, just because I wanted to. 🙂
This mini measure just 15″ x 15″ finished. I call this one, “Whose Turn Is It?” I know this looks pretty straight forward, and it is. But the trick here is I used a partial seam, sometimes called an inset seam to assemble the blocks around the center unit.
Before I get into the Partial Seam component I want to share the fabrics I used. Those gorgeous prints (can you believe I used purple?) are from the Strata collection from Michael Miller fabrics.
The fabrics and the colors in the Strata collection are just so yummy. In addition to the Strata fabrics I used a pink and lavender solid from the Cotton Couture collection. The Cotton Couture solids have always been my favorite solids to sew with as they are high quality fabrics and so much fun to sew with. I also used the Jet Black Cotton Couture fabric from Michael Miller, which is said to be the blackest black out there.
A Partial Seam is a great skill to have in your bag of tricks. Sometimes people refer to them as Inset Seams. Don’t let either term scare you. Partial Seams really are not difficult to do and I am making it my goal to help you conquer them next month. So get excited because that means a new tutorial is coming!
The backing fabric I used is the black Garden Pindot from Michael Miller with more Jet Black for binding. The Garden Pindot fabric is available in several color ways and it’s so cute. This is the first of many more fun projects to come so get ready!
