Excited to be joining you all today with Mini Charm Fun - Mini Wreaths tutorial link-up for Fall 2018 Tips and Tutorials Festival hosted by Meadow Mist Designs and Quilting Jetgirl.
It was a lot of fun designing and making this small quilt with a mini charm of Snowfall by Minick and Simpson for Moda that my children gifted me last Christmas. They know my fabric likes quite well : )
Simple designs are still very appealing to me even though some times I feel I should be doing harder/more complicated piecing. Then I remember I'd rather finish a quilt sooner than later and not add to the busyness of life. Simple piecing and quilting help me find calm and peace. I need to remember that. Quilting is my fun time. There is no reason for me to ruin that with assumed expectations. : )
It is a little surprising to me to be able to make a quilt this size at 26"x26" (nice size for wall hanging or table topper) from just a mini charm pack and a little over one-half yard of background fabric. Love it! Cute quilt without a lot of expense : ) Although this might be a little large for a mini quilt, I'm also checking off November's mini quilt for #12minisin12months hosted by Knot and Thread.
The piecing of this mini charm quilt is very simple and straightforward with cute little four patches and sashing. Add some borders and voila! Little quilt top finished!
There's still plenty of time to make a fresh little quilt for the coming holidays - there are so many cute Christmas lines this year!
Simple diagonal crosshatch quilting for the win. It was either this or straight crosshatch quilting. Diagonal won the vote.
Sweet little quilt!
