Great Ideas for More Accurate Piecing!
Small quilt blocks (less than 8″) are so charming. You often find them in mini quilts and other small projects. However, they do present their own challenges.
We often encourage quilters to be extra accurate when piecing small blocks. Being off by even a little can make the blocks more challenging and mistakes easier to spot.

There are other things to consider, too, that can have a big impact on the finished blocks. Andy from A Bright Corner has written an excellent article with tips for piecing them. These are insights she gleaned while making a sampler quilt made up of small blocks.
Just skimming Andy’s article made us wish we’d had this information the last time we pieced mini blocks. You’re sure to find it helpful too.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
