Mini Hope Chest Quilt Parade

Happy Monday! Today is Minis and More parade day for the mini Hope Chest quilt pattern! This little pattern is one of my favorite mini quilts to's perfect for any fabrics and is fast and fun to make!

We have some fun versions of this little quilt to share today...

First is Hildy's fun version. Hildy used left over charm squares from the Fresh Cut collection and added a dark sashing to make everything really shine! She also made a scrappy binding for her quilt.

 Karen added a sashing/post row on the outer edges of her quilt to make it a bit smaller. She is also working on the large version of this quilt and commented how fun it was to be able to work on both versions at once!

 Brenda made a beautiful bright version of the quilt!

To see more versions of the mini Hope Chest quilt be sure to visit Michele's blog today. (And if you'd like to  make this quilt paper patterns are available  with PDF versions also available).

And...the next pattern we've decided to make is the mini Clambake quilt by Thimbleblossoms. If you have a charm pack and a neutral fabric you have everything you need to get started.

Next month we'll be announcing a bigger quilt for our project...since our parades are "Minis and More" themed...we thought it would be fun to add in something a little larger than usual next time--we're sure you'll love it.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I'll be back tomorrow with this week's Sew Your Stash post!

And I secretly hoped you would pick Camille's Clambake pattern for next month just bought it from FQS and can't wait to make it (only 6 more FW blocks ... should I finish them first or work on Clambake? ... mmh ... glad I have a long weekend ahead of me;-) Thanks for hosting this fun parade:-)

Truth is was a fun little quilt and always a delight to see the parade. Karen's looks so different with the different arrangement of fabrics. Thanks for the fun.
