Mini Quilts

Hello and happy Monday...and happy April! Today I have a couple of mini quilts to share for our April Minis and More parade...and a fun option to let you know about for our May parade!

I love the versatility of mini quilt patterns...you can use your finished quilt as a pillow front, table topper, wall hanging or more...And Hildy made her mini into


a lovely pillow this month! The pattern for our parade is the Mini Ferris Wheel pattern by Joanna Figueroa. It's a fun little block that is actually much easier than it looks!


I love the Olive's Flower Market border and striped pink binding Hildy used! And I spy some Farmhouse in her block centers!



Karen used Simply Colorful by V & Co for her mini quilt... I love this bright spring version!



I meant to make a few more blocks...but with all of the market sewing the only one I can share is the one I made a couple of months ago to add to my Splendid Sampler quilt. You can see from Hildy's, Karen's, and my version that there are really a lot of possibilities with this design!

And...we picked a fun mini for this month, too! We'd love if you'd make the mini Vintage pattern this month and send a photo to me or Michele by the end of the month for our May parade! This pattern is a mini version of the large quilt from Camille's book Simply Retro with Camille Roskelley: Fresh Quilts from Classic Blocks .  This will be a great projects for using scraps and will make a terrific pillow front, table topper, or mini!

Be sure to stop by Michele's blog today to see more versions of this month's Mini Ferris Wheel quilt!

Thanks so much for stopping by...and I hope your week is off to a great start!

I love Karen's bright and sunny version and your block in Fig Tree fabrics is so cute!
Good eye with the Farmhouse fabric but actually all prints are from Moda (some OOP) except the linen.
I already have Camille's mini and now that's the perfect opportunity to make it.
Thanks for hosting the parade can't wait to see what's on Michele's blog.

I love the mini and especially love how Hildy made hers into a pillow! I think I need a "mini fix"... next months pattern looks like fun!

A pillow is a great idea for that mini. The blocks look great in all of the fabrics.
