Have you ever tried to make a mini quilt?
They are so cute, take way less time than full-size quilts, are perfect for wall hangings, great as doll quilts, and they’re the perfect project for that “instant-gratification” crafter!
Another perk? It’s a fabulous way to use that stash of fabric scraps you’ve been holding onto!
I’ve collected some GORGEOUS free patterns to share with you today from some of the most talented sewists.
Keep in mind you can change things up a bit with fabric choices and you can even do one block in a large quilt pattern to make it mini! You can also use these mini blocks and turn them into a larger quilt if desired!
