A Pair of Minis

My husband asked me to make new mini quilts to put on our nightstands. He was bored with the previous ones. So I laid out a stack of fabrics I thought he might like, and let him choose two prints for his nightstand and two for my nightstand.

Here’s what his looks like:

Here’s what mine looks like:

He went with a combination of an African safari map and batik fabrics. He also wanted a simple patchwork design, so I used my pattern for my checkerboards (which are sold out). I love how rich they look on the wood stain of our nightstands. I also love how easy and quick these minis were to make over the course of a week.

  • They look fantastic Terri and it’s great to see another use for mini quilts. I like how they are co-ordinating but different at the same time 🙂

  • Hello Terri,

    Just beautiful. love that they match and you can play checkers too if you want.
    Happy creating.

  • Wow Terri I love your minis! You did such a great job on them. I really love the fabric combinations you chose especially with the batik. I have always turned away from batik prints because I never have seen anything I like made with them. This is making me want to give them a try now. 🙂
    Maybe I’ll attempt a mini quilt when I get my sewing motivation back. It’s left me the past couple weeks and I wish it would hurry up and return!

  • How cute…cute of him to ask, and cute of you to abide (and to let him choose the fabrics!). They turned out sweet.

  • What a great idea!! I want mini quilts on MY nightstand now! If I only had one…you see we just have ONE and it is on Andrew’s side. 😛 Supposedly there are matching ones in the works in the workshop…I’ll believe it when I see it-and then I’ll cover them with mini quilts!

  • These are fabulous. I agree with Joanna, above. I want mini quilts on our nightstands too!
