Fast and Easy Quilt Magnets
Who Can Resist Mini Quilts for the Fridge?
These adorable magnets are quick and easy to make from tiny quilt squares. All you need are scraps, magnets and possibly some stiff plastic. Cluster several together on your fridge, and don’t forget to make extras for gifts!
Choose a simple quilt square and use a copier to reduce the pattern size so that the finished quilt block is 1.5″ to 2″ square. Or, simply piece some strips together. Sew the finished block to a piece of batting, and then to a backing (like a little pillow), leaving an opening so you can turn it. Insert the magnet and stitch the opening closed.
Voila! A tiny quilt for your fridge.

Quilt Magnet Tutorials
Notice that they mention that you may also want to insert a piece of stiff plastic to help your mini quilt magnet keep its shape (although top stitching around the edges of the finished pillow will also help).
Use either process to create cozy little magnet quilts for your fridge!
