More Mini Quilts

One Block Variation of Navajo Stars

Back in January I did a post on mini quilts with a few ideas and lots of fun mini quilts, and I’m happy to say that for mini quilt lovers everywhere the trend continues! Today I have some more mini quilt fun to share starting with a few of the new mini quilts introduced at International Quilt Market this May in Pittsburgh. Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree & Company introduced some individual new mini patterns; however, the “Navajo Stars” mini quilt above is actually just one block from a pattern that also includes a four block and a nine block version of a larger quilt.

Fig Tree also debuted the “Blossom” Mini which can also be made using a single fabric along with a contrast background. This scrappy version uses fabrics by Bonnie & Camille from a variety of their collections.

One of Camille Roskelley’s most recent mini quilt designs is her delightful Mini “Red Letter Day” which is an amazing design whether large or small!

And this Mini Shine pattern is another new mini pattern–it also features fabrics by Bonnie & Camille.

Fig Tree & Company also released a Mini Canned Pears quilt which is just as delightful as the full-size quilt version.

And the Fig Tree & Company “Mini Stitch” pattern is an example of the mini version coming out before the full-size version. Watch for a larger version of this pattern coming soon!

Mini quilts are a perfect way to use scraps, charm squares, and even Moda Candy packs. They piece together quickly and also offer the opportunity for quilters to quilt these smaller quilts on their home machines. It’s a good way to play with mixing and matching various collections, and you can get a good idea of how fabrics will play together in a larger quilt by making a mini quilt with the fabrics being “auditioned.”

Why not make your favorite mini quilt today?!
