New Mini Patterns

Happy Monday! Hope you are all keeping warm in your part of the world.  It's brutally cold here again this week, so we're sticking pretty close to home.  I have some very long overdue new patterns to share today! Embarrassingly enough, these patterns debuted at Fall Quilt Market and I'm only just now chatting about them. Whoops!

Last Fall, as I was thinking about new patterns, I decided to try doing something a little different.  That's how these idea for these mini patterns was born. The printed copies are the size of a postcard.  the PDF version can be printed on a single sheet of letter paper. They're simple, straightforward patterns.  Quick to cut and quick to put together.

Along with being mini in size, they're also mini in price at half the cost of my regular patterns. Let's check them out!

The first pattern is called Honeydew, and features my Color Me Retro collection.  This sawtooth quilt design has been hanging around for a while waiting to be made. I made up a baby version in Nordika early last year. It finishes at 64"x74".

I quilted this one with a meandering loop with a few swirls, stars, and some words too! I had a bit of fun with this one! It's backed in a vintage sheet and bound up in Lemonade Pure Element!

The second pattern is called Stellar, and features my Nordika collection. It plays with patchwork to use up every bit of 20 fat quarters. I revisited this design after pulling out the first bed quilt I made a few months back. It would be perfect for a beginner just getting into quilting! It finishes at 64"x80".

I just finished quilting this quilt over the weekend. I used a delicious mint 50wt Aurifil thread, #2835. I went with my signature loop quilting, extra big! It's backed in another vintage sheet and bound up in the Flowerfall Jade print.

The final pattern is called Lazy Daisy, and features my Dreamin' Vintage collection. It takes advantage of my very favorite method of piecing, random grab bag chain piecing.  Very technical terminology I use around here, huh?  You get a different design every time! It finishes at 58"x72".

This quilt hung in my Fall Quilt Market Booth. It was my first time quilting spirals and it took forever! I also backed this one in a vintage sheet and bound it with Sweet Pea Oval Element.

  1. Love your new patterns... Especially Stellar and Honeydew! I'm a rookie quilter and would like to attempt them both in the near future.:)

  2. Very beautiful patterns, I love your fabric collections. I was wondering, did you use take to stick the quilts to a brick wall for the photographs? If so, would you mind telling me what type of tape you used? I would love to be able to tape up my quilts instead of begging my husband to hold them. Thanks!

  4. Just an observation but I thought at first they were MINI quilts, not mini quilt PATTERNS. LOL! I was so confused by the size listed in the photos. I get it now. ;)

  5. I love the relative simplicity of your patterns and these are no exception! I seem to always have a quilt of "yours" in the works :)
