Hello! The first project I worked on at my quilt retreat last week was this little mini quilt. I thought it would be fun to take a little quilt to work on that I might be able to finish while away!
I did get all of the blocks done on the retreat and just had to decide on an
outer border and binding when I got home.
The blocks were fast and fun, and I’m now determined to make the full-size version of this quilt. Making a mini version first is a great way to decide if you want to invest time in a project!
When I purchased the pattern I didn’t realize there was a tiny bit of applique on each block: the center flower petal is a simple shape, so the stitching was easy! I used Joanna’s freezer paper method which is explained in the pattern.
Back at home I decided on a simple cross-hatch quilting design on my home machine.
This was a fun little quilt…these little flowers definitely say “spring” to me! (The pattern is “Mini Daisies” and is available here).
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Very pretty. So nice for spring.
What a fun and bright little mini! I confess I already made my mini clambake it was such a fun pattern to make. Now I just need a sunny day and a good photo:-)

Until you mentioned it, I didn't realize the middle pedal was appliqued – ever cute. Love this!!
It's creepy how often we are working on the same projects at the same time. I made 3 mini daisy blocks the other night for this year's Figgy Mystery BOM. 🙂

I've never seen a pattern that added that little bit of applique like that. The mini sure turned out pretty Sherri!

I am making this pattern now too!
Mine is ready for the final border and then the quilting. I will share with you when I finish!
