Fun Size Quilts Blog Hop & Giveaway

I have a fun little mini featured in a new compilation book hitting shelves right about now called Fun Size Quilts. There's loads of other talented designers featured in the book as well, as sharing fun mini quilt design ideas, with techniques ranging from piecing to appliqué. There's a wide variety of styles too, a little bit of something for everyone.

My mini is called Starlight, and features three paper pieced stars framed by negative space. The finished mini is about the size of a fat quarter, so it comes together rather quickly. That's one of my favorite things about mini quilts - they finish so quickly, even if they do use a challenging technique!

I also really love this adorable mini by Jeni Baker called Fox in a Box. Super simple, but so cute! Who doesn't love an adorable fox?

I also dig this super geometrical design by Melissa Corry. This one is called Quilticious, and features a fun twist on a simple chevron quilt.

I often think of reworking it for a larger quilt for me.

I knew nothing about quilting but had been sewing since I was 5 (60 yrs ago) - I made a 12" square that I appliqued an easter egg in each quarter - I sewed strips of fabric together to make fabric that I cut the eggs out of so that the strips were on the diagonal on the eggs - I put sashing across and down to make a cross in the middle and I bound it with easter colours plaid fabric - I found it this year when hunting through storage for old easter decorations.

I made them each a doll quilt and matching "diaper bag" for their dolls last year for christmas. The one that didn't care much for dolls... I told her it could be her treasure bag...and she could use the bag to go collect backyard treasures, and put the quilt on the ground to sit on to inspect her treasures!

  165. I have several favorite minis. One is the first I ever made. I call it the children of the world, it's a whole cloth and I hand quilted it back in the 70's/early 80's and finally did the binding about 2 years ago when I came back to quilting. I'm a tester for paper piecing and use those for mug rugs and some I expand on and make wall hangings.

  169. I only made a little table topper for someone who was sick at the hospital once. I made a simple patchwork doll quilt too. I have to jump on the trend

  170. My Favorite that i made recently was a few scrappy Kaffee Fasset mug rugs I love the colors so much. There on the coffee table but no mugs aloud!!

  171. I've been wanting to try a mini quilt, something fun and quick to hang in my sewing room. This looks like a good book to use for inspiration!

  172. I made a mini broken lone star for a small group swap and wanted to keep it for myself. I think it turned out well.

  173. I haven't made a mini quilt yet, thought I love so many of the ones I've been seeing. Would love to make a mini, it feels so much more manageable than a full size quilt, especially with a baby on the way.

  175. What a great idea for a quilt book! I adore minis - stars are a favorite so really love your design!

  176. I haven't made a mini quilt yet, but I have made a Christmas-themed wallhanging that I really like. I think it is still too big to be considered a mini.

  177. I actually haven't made a mini yet -- the closest I've gotten is placemats. :D

  178. Let me try this for a third time. (I'm not sure what has made it so my answer hasn't yet posted.) I am planning to make some minis so I can do some free motion quilting on something that is easy to move through the machine.

  181. I have made a bargello wall hanging quilt as part of the sulky course and I have also made a whole cloth quilt just for free motion practice.

  182. I love making minis but my favourite so far would be my mini swoon!

  183. I really loved the improv mini I just made for the Schnitzel and Boo mini quilt swap

  184. This is the perfect way to use those scraps that I have a hard time tossing.

  185. My favorite so far was a pink and green improv log cabin style

  186. My favorite mini quilt is a 4"x4" improv piece for my scissors. My second favorite is my MQG challenge, because I learned a lot, not because I like the finished project too well.

  187. My favorite (only) mini quilt was a family of three penguins that I made for a guild challenge in 2001 or 2002. It is black, white and blue and has three penguins created using Margaret Rolfe's "A Quilter's Ark". I really like penguins and at the time my family size was three.

  188. I made a delightful amish style mini. It is pink, red, and navy and seems to always seem current. Thanks for the giveaway.

  189. I've haven't finished my first mini yet - it's at the point of quilting - and waiting for my machine to be serviced as it's not doing FMQ any more..... it is made from a book with lovely minis using a focus fabric that holds many memories for me! I'd love to win - thanks!
