Mini Mondays - Mini Lombard Street
This week in our Mini Monday Series is our Mini Lombard Street pattern!
Mini Lombard Street is the miniature version of our fun Lombard Street quilt pattern. Both patterns will be 20% off today and tomorrow (3/26/18 - 3/27/18 PST). Now let's chat about Mini Lombard Street!
How Mini Is This Mini?
The Mini Lombard Street finishes 12 inches wide by 16.25 inches tall. We downsized the original blocks and reduced the amount of vertical rows to 6 of 7 blocks.
The Mini Lombard Street is a fun pattern to experiment with color and try different combinations, backgrounds and fussy-cutting. You can use scraps to create a gradation of color, or a gradation of one color from light to dark throughout the quilt. You could feature one solid color for the triangles and use assorted low volumes for the background, or play with light and dark.
Techniques & Skills
This mini is completely paper-pieced! Each of the paper-pieced blocks only has 5 pieces that create the alternating stacked triangles. Each row is flipped over to create the zigzagging background between the triangles!
Mini Lombard Street is one of our favorites to make! Plus it is a fun version to add some fussy-cut elements into the little triangles if your heart so desires.
Our cover Mini Lombard Street quilt is a gradation of color from yellow to red with little tidbits of fun fussy-cutting in those triangles! Can you spot the hedgehog or fox?
This next mini quilt features our favorite solid color, wasabi, as the triangles with assorted black-on-white fabrics in the background. We added a pop of wasabi into the binding to bring it to the edge.
And last but not least is this version of our Mini Lombard Street that features assorted coral scraps on a solid white background. I love the quilting only in the background on this one!
