▪️Mini Quilts▪️

Since getting the cast off my arm, I've been making small projects! My wrist is still recovering from the break, so I've found making minis is easier on my wrist. Here are 6 I've made in the past couple weeks:
Quilt Info #1:
Maker: Me!
Size: 7" X 9"
Pattern: cut 2" squares
Batting: Quilters Dream scrap
Thread: Glide--Pink
Pantograph: Sweethearts ⤵️ from Piece & Joy Quilting
This is my 6th mini quilt made to fit in my mini quilt stand. Most of them are for different special days!
Many of the light prints are fussy cut from the fabric I used for the backing!⤵️
Rather than making a quilt block, I like to keep it simple and make these out of 2" squares from my collection.
Quilt Info #2:
Maker: Me!
Pattern: Primavera from Quiltd Studios
Size: 18" x 18"
Batting: Quilters Dream 100% Cotton
Thread: Glide--Nickel
Pantograph: Ikat 1 ⤵️ from Urban Elementz
This is a free modern quilt block pattern from Quiltd Studios!!!
Quilt Info #3 and #4:
Maker: Me!
Pattern: cut 2" squares
Size: 7" x 9"
Batting: Quilters Dream scraps
Thread: Glide--Irish Spring/Linen
Pantograph: Shamrocks & Leaves ⤵️
This is my 7th mini quilt made for my mini quilt stand!
Why two, you may be thinking? These are made out of 2" squares. I cut down 2 1/2" squares when possible, but sometimes I have to cut a 2" strip from my collection. Rather than stash or toss the part I didn't use, I made a second one, to give away.
Quilt Info #5:
Maker: Me!
Pattern: Feather Edged Stars by Joe Cunningham
Size: 17" x 17"
Batting: Quilters Dream scrap
Thread: Glide--Khaki
Pantograph: Eddies Edge To Edge ⤵️ from Quiltable
The quilting was inspired by the yellow print, swirls galore!!! Both prints are from Japan.
I made this during Quilt 2024, a free 5 day virtual quilt class event in January. This was a class with Joe Cunningham--Feather Edged Star, done in improv style. 

I watched a total of 30 classes during the event, which fit into my schedule perfectly, as I was grounded at that time with my arm in a cast!!! A similar event, Summer Camp 2024 will be held July 17-21. Registration begins on June 5th.
Quilt Info #6:
Maker: Me!
Pattern: Sweetheart Strawberry from Burlap and Blossom
Size: 12" x 12"
Batting: Quilters Dream Poly
Thread: Glide--Pink
Pantograph: Cherry Blossoms ⤵️ from Intelligent Quilting
This came as a free pattern from Burlap and Blossoms, for her newsletter subscribers
The pattern comes with 6", 9", 12", 18" and 24" instructions. I made the 12" size--fast & fun!

  15. So cute! My little quilt stand is one of my favorite decore items, and I change out the quilt fairly often. It's holding a Valentine mini right now.

  16. As if something like a broken wrist could keep a quilter like you down for long! Yay for getting your cast off and getting back into the swing of things with these minis!

  17. Hooray for leaving that cast behind! Your mini quilts are so cheery and the fabrics so fun. I chuckled when you wrote that you would rather cut 2 1/2 inch square to 2 inches rather than cut into a two inch strip. . . .that is so me!!! Be gentle with that wrist. . .it has a lot of catching up to do!---TerryK@OnGoingProjects
