OLFA Designer Spotlight!


It's been so fun becoming involved in the creative community on Instagram over the past 185 weeks - yes I scrolled to the bottom of my feed to check how long I've been there! Instagram is a really great way to get to know like minded crafty people, learn new techniques and try fun new products. Recently, after responding to a post about a previous Olfa Designer Spotlight on Instagram, I was given the opportunity to design a pattern for Olfa and in exchange they sent me a variety of lovely rotary cutters, snazzy rulers and awesome cutting mats!

I chose to design this adorable mini quilt (#hellominiquilt on Instagram!). It's a combination of simple, scrappy patchwork and easy machine applique! What could be more fun than that? Please click the image below to read my Designer Spotlight on the Olfa website and click through to my free pattern. Enjoy!! And, if you make this, please tag me on Instagram so I can see. I'd love to take a peek at your creations!

 Hello Mini Quilt
Thank you, Robin, at Olfa for the opportunity! It's been a lot of fun working with you on this project.

  1. Hello Cindy! I read your review and thought I'd ask as I can't find it anywhere... I have the brother laura ashley NX2000. Got it last year and love the machine! However, today I suddenly realized something...unless I am missing something...there is no REVERSE feature! There is the one where you press it and it does 3 reverse stitches to secure/reinforce at the beginning and the end of the stitch line, but... what if you need to make a reverse stitch to back up to redo a stitch line or move it over or something? Do you know... does this machine have a reverse feature?
