New Mini Quilt Wall July 20 2014, 4 Comments

I have a small (and growing) collection of mini quilts. There is a huge satisfaction is designing, sewing, quilting, binding and hanging something all in one day! I have my small collection of six quilts hung behind my sewing machine table. 

Mini Quilt Wall

I recently took all my minis down for a show & tell and this gave me the opportunity to rearrange and add a few newbies! I laid them all out on the floor and played with different layouts until I got one I loved and thought I could add new ones to easily. 

Mini Quilts!

I hung the quilts using two pins in each of the top corners. Simple, easy and small holes in the walls! This was a great way to add some color to my room without doing irreparable damage to my rental's walls.

The pineapple mini is new and was inspired by a pillow Amber Crawley was giving away on Instagram. (click here to see it!) I loved how cute and simple it was. I made my own little version with 1" finished squares and I am in love. The quilt finishes 8.5" x 11.5". It is the size of a piece of paper!

This scrappy churndash is a miniature version of the Churndash Court pattern. I reduced the pattern to 1/3 of the size. The strips finish a little less than 1/2" wide and I had a blast digging through my scrap bucket! This quilt finished 12" x 12".

The heart quilt is a free pattern we have on Craftsy. It utilizes and 2.5" squares and you can see more photos of it here. This quilt finished 22" x 22" and is my largest on the wall!

The mini churndash quilt was my entry into the DSTT Modern Traditional Challenge. It is comprised of thirty-six 3" churndash blocks. You can see lots more photos of this quilt here. This quilt is one of my favorites and finished 20" x 20".

The fox is a brand new addition to my mini quilt family and will be featured on the Timeless Treasures blog this week with an appliqué tutorial. I shrunk Mr. Fox from the Zoey's Zoo quilt pattern down and added orange scraps on the left side. This quilt finished 15" x 11.5".

The newest addition to my wall is this letter S mini quilt. I made multiple 1" half square triangles and arranged them as an "S". It was a fun and quick project that filled my "I need to finish something immediately" kick! The quilt finished 8.5" x 9.5".

S is for Shayla Mini Quilt

So, what do you think? Should I pattern or make tutorials on any of these? Are there any amazing mini quilts out there I need to make?
