Free Patchwork Pear Mini Quilt Pattern
I have one more mini fruit wallhanging up my sleeve! This little pear looks great with the Mini Pineapple, Mini Orange and Mini Apples. If I ever have wall space in a future kitchen space, I imagine a little wall collage. For now, they are making my mini wall even cuter!
- assorted yellow-green scraps
- one green scrap
- 1/8 yard of white
- 1/8 yard of yellow-green for binding
- 2-1/4" wide black & white scrap for binding
- 10” x 12” scrap for backing
From the assorted yellow-green scraps, cut:
- ten 1-1/2” squares
- three 1-7/8” squares
From the green scrap, cut:
- one 1-7/8” square
From the white background, cut:
- four 1-7/8” squares
- three 1-1/2" x 2-1/2" rectangles
- two 2-1/2” x 6-1/2” rectangles
- two 2-1/2” x 8-1/2” rectangles
To make the half-square triangles: 1. Layer a 1-7/8” white square and yellow-green square right sides together. 2. Draw a line down the center. 3. Using a 1/4” seam, sew on both sides of the square. 4. Cut along the drawn line. 5. Press the seams open.
Make 6 total white/yellow-green half square triangles and 2 total white/green half-square triangles.
Sew the squares, rectangles and half-square triangles together as shown. Press the seams open. Sew the rows together to form the pear. Press the seams open.
Sew the 2-1/2” x 6-1/2” rectangles to each side of the pear. Press towards the white border. Sew the 2-1/2” x 8-1/2” rectangles to the top and bottom. Press towards the border.
Finish the Quilt
Layer the pear, batting and backing fabric. Quilt a grid of lines 1” apart. Sew the binding strip to the 2-1/4” wide black and white scrap on the diagonal. Create your binding and sew it to the quilt in your favorite method. Voila!
I am collecting quite the collection of fruit mini quilts. Any other fruits you'd like to see turned into patchwork? If you make this or any other Sassafras Lane project, we would love to see it! Send us photos or post them to our Flickr group.
