Make a mini quilt with the help of this collection of over thirty free mini quilt patterns, tutorials, and diy sewing projects gathered from all over the web.
So whether you're a beginner quilter or have years of quilting experience, here you'll find a variety of traditional and modern mini quilt patterns, plus lots of fun novelty designs to sew.
So, what exactly defines a "mini quilt?" There's no official definition, but generally speaking, it's a quilt that measures no more than 24 inches on each side.
And what's great about sewing a mini quilt is that it gives you the opportunity to try a new block or pattern without committing yourself to sewing a full size quilt. Plus, you may find some of the more whimsical mini quilt patterns fun to sew on a small scale, but wouldn't necessarily want them in a full size quilt.
And of course, if you're looking for a quick-to-make project, a mini quilt will likely stitch up in just a few hours (unless the design is particularly intricate). And it can also be a great way to use up fabric scraps, especially when you don't have enough coordinating scraps for an entire bed quilt.
And a mini quilt can make a great project for someone new to quilting. Because of its small size, it shouldn't take the beginner long to finish and she'll quickly have the satisfaction of a completed project. Plus, a mini quilt will be easier for her to handle and sew than a larger quilt would be. And once the new quilter completes her quilt, if she decides that quilting isn't for her, she hasn't invested too much time or money in her project.
So, what can you do with your mini quilt once it's finished? Many quilters love to hang their mini quilts as beautiful wall art. It can also serve as a lovely table topper.
