Woodcut Mini Quilt

Tuesday, May 14, 2019


Happy Tuesday! Today I want to share the mini quilt that I made my Mom for Mother's Day!


My Mom has a wall in her sewing room that she is filling with mini quilts. I've made her a few, and I thought she could use another! She loves pink so I went all pink for this mini and dug into my scrap bin.


I decided to make a block from my friend Holly DeGroot's Woodcut Quilt Pattern. You can find it for sale in her online shop Bijou Lovely along with lots of beautiful fabrics and gifts!


I knew this block would be great for using scraps, plus it came together quickly! The center block is paper pieced, and I framed it with one of my Dreamin' Vintage florals.


Keeping with the pink theme I ended up using another Dreamin' Vintage print for the binding. It can be hard mixing pinks, there is such a huge range between warm and cool toned pinks.


I kept the quilting really simple (as always, pretty much!) and did some shadow quilting within the block. I added a few straight lines in the corners and it was done!

Happy Quilting!

  2. Jeni, your mom is very lucky to have such a lovely daughter. You are a gem. This little quilt is very cute. Now I want to make one. My mom lived to 93. I am grateful that I could take care of her in the last years of her life. She was always crazy busy and active until she had a stroke in 2013. I moved them close to me so I could take care of them. Mom and dad lived, and now dad is 95, 4 miles from me. I am truly blessed. Daddy would be living in my house, but he likes his apartment at Ashby Ponds fancy community.

    Again, your mini quilt is so adorable. Now that I have 4 grand daughters, I am going to start making doll quilts for them.
