Hello, friends! Today I’m sharing my Favorite Small Projects from 2023. I love making small quilts and projects for our home and to gift to others. This year I think I made the most ever! Along with table runners and toppers, wall hangings, and pillows, I also made quite a number of small bags for myself and others. Find all of the details for these projects in today’s post.
Favorite Small Projects from 2023
Table Runners + Table Toppers
Table runners and toppers are some of my favorite projects to make. I love making a fun runner with new fabrics right away to get a feel for how the fabrics play together.
Pillows are another favorite project for me to sew with a new collection or with my scraps. Some of this year’s pillows are pictured above with pattern links below:
- Orange Peel Pillow (free PDF + tutorial)
- Flower Garden Pillow & Table Mat (free PDF + tutorial)
- Flower Garden Medley Pillow, Table Topper, and Mug Rug
Wall hangings are definitely another small project of choice for me! This year I think I made more wall hangings than in recent years. Along with the two Bountiful Blooms projects above, I also made a Christmas wall hanging pictured at the end of this post, and the A Quilting Life wall hanging I’ve been wanting to make for several years.

- Fall Dash Mini (above right)
This year I was delighted to be able to make my Aubri Tote and Easy Zipper Bags in our Bountiful Blooms fabrics. Then I made lots of cross-body bags for market in our Strawberry Lemonade fabrics. And finally, I made myself a Kindle case and a little case for my AirPods!
I also regularly pieced Mug Rugs, Potholders, and other small projects throughout the year. This year I was super happy to finally be able to get my Potholder Pizazz pattern in print! Paper copies just arrived from my printer the other day!
More Small Projects
I was so happy to get my Lovely Stars Table Runner finished up in time to use this Christmas. And the Christmas Tree wall hanging is a free pattern from Fat Quarter Shop that I also got finished up right before time to decorate. Finally, my 2023 Stitch Pink Sew Along project is also a free pattern.
