A Mini Quilt To Be Treasured
A quaint mini quilt to put a lot of vintagey fabrics on display. Use the prettiest doily prints, and sweet dainty florals, this small quilt when given as a gift, could well become an heirloom. Or simply enjoy the beauty!
The design is so easy based on a spin of Hst’s for pinwheels, and a generous border just right to capture the dreamy lacey doilies. White for the background is just perfect for this powder fresh quilt.
Make this mini in an afternoon, chain piecing hst’s. The center pops with just four pinwheels. We love how straight line quilting meets in the middle to form diamonds at the center of the pinwheels! Simple quilting seems the perfect compliment to the soft textures of Beverley McCullough’s new fabric line, ‘Vintage Keepsakes’. (available here)
The mini quilt, designed by Beverley of Flamingo Toes, features the beautiful fabric. Or choose your fabrics and combinations, for this fun afternoon project. If you’re wanting to make a lot of mini’s, for gifts, and for yourself, you can save a lot of cutting time using Nancy’s Notions Easy Half Square Triangles Template. See how to use the template in this quick tutorial here.
Finished size of 22″ x 22″, it’s the perfect size to display on your table, or to use in the sewing room!
