Bold or Soft, Colorful or Subdued, this Mini Quilt Will Impress!

Have you been thinking about making a miniature quilt, or keeping your eye out for a small project? If so, this pattern might be just what you’re looking for.

Miniatures are complete quilts made on a small scale. They’re often fairly quick to make and can be used as wall hangings or table toppers. With striking fabric choices, these little quilts can make a big impact however they are displayed.

Blessing Baskets Quilt

This “Blessing Baskets” quilt made by Sylfel is 18″ x 18″. The blocks are 4″ square. While that may sound a bit intimidating, don’t worry. The squares are simple to put together and don’t require any special skills.

We love the colors she chose for her version. They have a homey old fashioned feel, yet the strong value contrasts make for an eye catching quilt.

The original version by Temecula Quilt Company has a softer touch but is equally lovely.

While we love the old fashioned feel of these quilts, we would also enjoy the pattern made up in bright, modern-look fabrics. The quilt is small and quick enough to make that you could easily play with colors and fabric selection by making more than one!
