Hello, friends, and happy Friday! Today I’m sharing a fun Mini Snowballs Quilt Pattern. Not only does this pattern make a fun mini or table topper, but it’s also easily adaptable to use as a pillow top. And you can also use the fun block layouts to make smaller items like mug rugs or even potholders. And I’m also excited to let you know that I’ll be sharing a seasonal mini pattern or small project PDF each month in 2022. Today’s project is the first of the series, and future projects and patterns will post around the middle of each month.
Mini Snowballs Quilt Pattern
My Mini Snowballs quilt was originally published in Quilts & More a few years ago. I’ve been meaning to make the pattern available for a while now and decided that it would make the perfect debut project for my 2022 small project pattern series. I love working on small projects for a fast finish and feel like one per month is exactly what we need for 2022.
Mini Snowballs Quilt Details
The Mini Snowballs Quilt finishes at 21-½″ x 21-½″ and is perfect for your scraps. I used a combination of fat eighths and charm squares along with ½-yard of background and border fabric and ¼ yard of binding. You can get the PDF pattern with fabric requirements, cutting instructions, and block and quilt assembly instructions in my shop here.
Mini Snowballs Quilt Video
I filmed a quick video the other day to introduce this fun little mini. See the quilt close up and get ideas for more options with the blocks in this quilt. Watch above or go here to watch on our YouTube channel.
More Ideas for the Mini Snowballs Quilt
As I mention in the quilt video, there are so many options for these fun blocks. Some of my favorites are:
- Leave off the outer border and make a pillow using the quilt center.
- Use two blocks, or one block and an additional rectangle to make a fun mug rug.
- Use two rows of blocks to make the center for a table runner.
- One block with a border makes a terrific potholder.
So, I hope you’ll have fun with this month’s small project. I’m excited to share these simple projects with you each month for 2022.
Happy quilting, and thanks so much for stopping by to read about my Mini Snowballs Quilt Pattern!
