Mini Quilt Mania

I used this yummy fabric bundle that Jodie helped pick out...She is the best at fabric pulling!!!
You will need only 1/4 yd cuts each of three coordinating oranges, yellows and blues. Then you will need 1/4 yd. of white.
Fat Quarters would work also.
Center Block
Mini Quilt Mania
Cut (4) 1.5" x 9" strips of each of your nine colored fabrics.( 3 Yellows, 3 Oranges, 3 Blues.)
Mini Quilt Mania
Take one of each of the fabrics and sew a strip set together.
Mini Quilt Mania
Sub-cut into (4) 1.5" x 9" strips.
Mini Quilt Mania
Cut (5) 1.5" x 9" strips of white fabric. I cut a few extras here.
Mini Quilt Mania
Sew your center block together by alternating white strips and your cut strip sets.
Outer Border
Mini Quilt Mania
Now to make the blocks for the outer border, you will make (3) Yellow strip sets, (3) Orange strip sets, (3) Blue strip sets.
Mini Quilt Mania
Sub-cut each to yield (2) 3.5" squares.
Mini Quilt Mania
The total number of 3.5" squares you will need: 6 Yellow, 5 Orange, 5 Blue.
Mini Quilt Mania
Layout your top like this. Sew your top and bottom borders together and then your left and right.
Mini Quilt Mania
Then attach top and bottom borders to the center and then add the left and right sides....
Yay! Your top is done!
Mini Quilt Mania
I used my leftovers to piece together a cute backing....waste not, want not:)
Mini Quilt Mania
I quilted it using straight lines and a walking foot. I used varying amounts of space between my quilting lines and didn't worry about keeping them straight....I like it a little wonky!
Mini Quilt Mania
For my thread I used a light orange in Aurifil's 100% cotton 50wt. To wrap it up I machine bound it in white using 2.5" binding strips.
Just in case you missed them... here is the schedule for all the other fabulous mini's. I think I can fill my wall up pretty quick with these cuties!

I love the sassy colors you used on the mini.

Beth said...

That is one sassy mini quilt! Thanks for sharing!

And yes, everything mini *is* cute, especially to women. I read a book once that went into great detail about the reasons why, evolutionarily, women respond to small things with an, "Ahhhh...." response. Since then I have noticed my response to all sorts of mini things and it's true: I respond to tiny bottles of ketchup with a "oh, that's so sweet" as if it were a puppy. We are programmed to respond to small things as if they are helpless and need our nurturing...and quilts bring our the nurturer in all of us, so I'm fine with my immediate warm and loving response to all things "Mini Quilt". :)

Sylvia Anderson said...

Well, since the word sassy means, lively, bold, and full of spirit, the quilt is the personification of all these adjectives. I would very much like to make this quilt, especially using the same fabrics, since you went through the process of choosing them already. lol Sometimes I find this takes longer than anything! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity. lv2bquilting2@comcast.net
