Ruby Floral Mini Quilt To Frame Your Favorite Flower

Mini Charm Topper With A Center Frame To Put A Favorite Flower On Display.

If you love charm square projects, this quaint mini quilt has a neat design to put a half square triangle at the corners of the center to create a frame. Applique a flower, or fussy cut a butterfly, or anything else that you would like to frame.

This mini quilt is 12″ square, a quick Saturday afternoon project to use for summer or any season of the year. Use Moda’s Ruby charm pack to make the perfect frame for a red wild flower. Charms are cut into 2 1/2″ squares and then half square triangles are used in the corners of the frame to create the shape. A simple applique stitch for the stems, petals and leaves complete the pretty flower display

Make a couple of these minis and use any color flower. Use mini charms or cut 2 1/2″ squares from any fabric. A few scraps to make tattered flowers and contrasting embroidery thread creates a dreamy country feel. Easily make the mini larger by using charm squares for the same design.

Use 30’s reproduction fabric. If you don’t applique, use a floral print for the center piece. Cut 28 x 2 1/2″ squares for one block. Make three blocks for a pretty floral table runner. Connie from Quilting by the River put the blocks together with the idea of making a runner or a darling baby quilt.
