Mini Quilt Monday Contributions

I know, technically it’s not Monday anymore. But Monday was a holiday, so technically, today is my workday Monday. What better way to get back into the swing of things by sharing my new mini quilts.

I really love seeing all the mini quilt projects being created these days.  When I first learned how to quilt, I started with minis, which was quite fun.

Here are my newest minis, which I finished over the weekend, and I love for the quilting practice and for using up scraps:

my three new mini quilts!The first mini is a string-pieced pattern, based on Rachel’s tutorial. I changed it slightly by using different widths of strips. I just love how this one turned out! I quilted about 1/4 inch from the seam of each string, and then a few random lines down the middle of a couple wider strips.

The second mini is a triangle-square block pattern, using scraps from my coin quilt. I love how this one turned out because I love these fabrics, especially with the clean, fresh white.

The last mini is a disappearing nine-path using scraps from my Ava Rose quilt.

I am so happy with how each of these turned out, for different reasons. I either love the block, love the fabrics, or love the quilting. I have more ideas for future minis, so I’m off to play. Thanks for stopping by!
